How to make Heart Shaped Cake:
  • For Buttercream Frosting
  • Take a big bowl and beat butter in it with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Keep the speed low.
  • Combine sugar, milk, and vanilla with it and now beat for one minute on low speed.
  • Now raise the speed of the mixer to medium and keep beating for another one minute till frosting is fluffy.
  • Now add food color to it. Just put few drops at a time.
  • Keep beating till the desired shade is reached.
  • If frosting is thin, add more confectioners' sugar and if it is thick, add milk.

    For Cake
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a 9 inches round cake pan and one 9 inches square cake pan properly. Dust uniformly with flour, keep it aside.
  • Take a big mixing bowl and add cake mix, Jell-O powder, milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Now beat for one minute with an electric mixer, keeping the speed low.
  • Raise the speed of the mixer to medium and keep on beating for about two minutes, till the batter is soft and properly blended.
  • Now place the batter evenly in the two prepared pans.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, till the light brown color is reached as well as a toothpick placed in the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool on wire racks for about 10 minutes.
  • To make a heart shaped cake, rotate the square cake so that it seems to be a diamond.
  • Now make two semi-circles from the circle cake.
  • Set the semi-circles on the top two sides of the diamond to create a heart shape.
  • Use buttercream frosting and decorate the cake.
