1. Heart Shaped Cake

If you’re on the hunt for a delicious, red colored heart shaped cake, then we’d like to introduce you to this amazing recipe.

The colors of this cake remind us of valentines day, with lots of piped pink buttercream frosting, and plenty of little heart shaped sprinkles too. 

If you really want to show your love on your big day, we think that this one is perfect for doing so. 

But, as well as being super cute and aesthetically pleasing to look at, did we also mention that it tastes delicious? This is one of the tastiest cakes in town, and is made using a red velvet sponge at the base.

For those of you who are already fans of red velvet, then we’d like to tell you that it’s one of the tastiest ones that we’ve tried. 

It has heaps and heaps of cocoa powder which gives it that classic, rich, chocolatey flavor, as well as lots of buttermilk, which give it an amazing tanginess.

The sponge itself is super duper moist, just like you’d expect from a red velvet cake, but it’s also dense enough so that you can top it off with your favorite decorations. 

Don’t be afraid to get creative with this one, and choose different shaped piping, or some different sprinkles for the decoration. 

2. Heart Shaped Chocolate Cake

Calling all chocolate lovers! We’ve got the perfect heart shaped cake for you. If you’re a lover of all things rich and indulgent, then you’re bound to adore this Italian chocolate cake recipe.

This one has an average level of difficulty, so if you’re a beginner when it comes to making sweet treats, you may need a few practice runs to get it just right. 

One of the best things about this recipe is the super moist chocolate sponge, that simply falls apart on your fork.

It’s layered with heaps and heaps of chocolate ganache, which help to give it that classic, rich flavor that we absolutely adore. 

We also love the fact that this recipe actually comes with a video tutorial too, so that you can easily follow along, and pause whenever you need to. 

This one has three different types of frosting, all of which are chocolate based and add to the depth of flavors that this cake presents.

It also has candied hazelnuts packed inside, which help to give this cake even more of a delicious texture. 

To top the cake off, white icing is used to pipe the inscription on the icing. This takes a little bit of skill to get right, and we’d recommend that you practice on the countertop a few times before finally icing it on the cake itself.

The cake base itself is super simple, and only requires a total of 6 ingredients, most of which you’ll probably already have in your pantry.

As well as this, it also has a super easy and tasty icing, that’s made using buttercream and crushed raspberries. 

In terms of the decoration itself, the chocolate buttercream is layered on top of the cake, and then the rest of it is left exposed, so that you can see the beautiful vanilla and strawberry layers. 

You can finish this cake off with any decorative items of your choosing. We particularly love the way they’ve opted for edible petals in this recipe, which help to give it a touch of elegance and refinement.
