You don’t need a specialty pan to bake a cake shaped like a heart. All you really need is a sharp knife and a regular cake pan and you can simply trim down a round or square cake to be a little more romantic. This is an easy fix if your kitchen space is limited and you don’t want to clutter it up with pans you don’t use often enough. If you do have room for another pan that would be ideal for Valentine’s Day and other romantic occasions, try picking up the Wilton Heart Tasty Fill Cake Set instead of an ordinary heart-shaped pan.
The Wilton Heart Tasty Fill Cake Set makes a fairly plain looking cake that has a surprise inside: a heart-shaped tunnel that can be filled with ice cream, whipped cream, fruit, frosting or any other filling you can dream up. The pan is designed to bake a round cake in two halves, one with the bottom point of a heart and another with the top domes. When the cake is baked and the pieces stacked together, you will be able to see the heart in every slice. Pretty sweet, isn’t it?
