Heart Shaped Cake

You most likely have seen this idea on Pinterest.. I decided to try it for myself. My favorite cake mix on earth is Duncan Hines' Butter Golden - I prefer it over Better Crocker!

You will need:
1 9" square pan
1 9" round pan
1 box cake mix w/ ingredients
Frosting Recipe - My No Fail Cream Cheese frosting recipe here
Cake Decorations (sprinkles, food coloring, etc)

1.Bake the cake like you normally would - using one square pan and one round pan. Let them cool in the pans, over a cooling rack.

2. Place the square cake on a baking sheet, in a diamond shape. Remove round cake and cut in half. Place each half on the upper slants of your square. This will form a heart shape.

3. Ice the cake and decorate! Great to surprise your spouse with.

 * To make the heart in the center of the cake, I lightly placed a heart shape cookie cutter in the middle and filled the outline with sprinkles.
