A box of chocolates is always a sweet treat for a Valentine, but I’m personally partial to the idea of a little heart-shaped cake to let your loved ones know that you’re thinking of them. The Elegant Heart Cakelet Pan allows you to bake six individual heart-shaped cakes that you can give as gifts or share with those you care about. The hearts are not overly complicated, but they have some detailing around the sides that makes them resemble mini bundt pans and allows a drizzle of icing a clear path down the sides of the cake when you’re decorating. The pan is made of heavy duty cast aluminum, as are most Nordic Ware products, and has a nonstick interior that allows for the cakes to be released easily after baking with all of their details intact. Each cavity holds about 3/4 cup of batter, creating a cake that is large enough for two to share or one hungry person to indulge in.
Hearts may be associated closely with Valentine’s Day, but the beauty of a heart-shaped pan is that you can use it all year round for everything from birthdays and anniversaries to everyday occasions, so this specialty pan is one that should get more use than the average holiday-themed piece of bakeware.
