Chocolate Sweetheart Cake Recipe

123Greetings says February 9 is CHOCOLATE DAY? And it's the week of Valentine's so I'm posting this Chocolate Sweetheart Cake by pillsbury not really because of it's recipe but because it explains how to make a heart shape cake without using a heart shape cake pan. Something this simple needs to be shared and you would be surprised at how many people have emailed me asking for links to directions. :)  Pass it on to new bakers!

Chocolate Sweetheart Cake Recipe

Chocolate Sweetheart Cake Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package ( 1 pound 2.25 ounces) devil's food cake mix with pudding
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tub (12 ounces) chocolate whipped frosting or 1 tub (16 ounces) chocolate ready-to-spread frosting

DIRECTIONS:
1. Heat oven to 350°. Grease bottom only of 1 round pan, 8x1 1/2 inches, and 1 square pan, 8x8x2 inches, with shortening. Make cake mix as directed on package, using water, oil and eggs. Pour into pans.

2. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes; remove from pans to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

3. Cut round layer in half as shown in "diagram". Freeze uncovered about 1 hour for easier frosting if desired. Arrange pieces on serving platter to form heart as shown in diagram. Frost cake with frosting, attaching pieces with small amount of frosting. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
For a truly special presentation to make hearts flutter, garnish with fresh small strawberries or raspberries and curls of white chocolate. Or for real chocolate lovers, press miniature chocolate chips onto the side of the frosted cake.
