If you get my Friday newsletter, you most likely read Midge’s question about my favorite Valentine’s Day treat for children (if you don’t get my FREE newsletter be sure and subscribe via the sticky note in the upper right corner). Read below to find out what I like to make for my children! Molly
It has become a tradition that I make a heart shaped cake for my children on Valentine’s Day! I have changed it up some as the years have gone by. Sometimes I bake one large cake and sometimes I make individual, small cakes. If you’ve never made these cute little cakes, you can find DIRECTIONS HERE for a large cake and HERE for mini cakes. If you don’t want to make the cake(s) from scratch you can use a box mix. The secret to the little cakes is a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Shhhh!!!
Of course you can add any type of frosting, sprinkles, colored sugar or whatever kind of decorations strike your fancy. One of my favorite years was when I used CHOCOLATE GANACHE for a topping! Yum! If you’ve never made ganache, give it a whirl!
Love ya, Molly
