Since I was a little girl, I've loved to bake and cook. I've always loved to celebrate the holidays in grand style. I know who to thank for this too. My friend Betty.
I had these cookbooks growing up, and I'm sure my mom still has them. They were old when I was a kid, so, I think they are from the 60's or so. I think my mom found them for me at a yard sale. I loved pouring over them, especially the Party book.
Oh, the parties I would plan in my head! Who knew I'd actually grow up and throw such parties?!
All you need:
A round cake and a square cake.
Here's the whole process:
Couple tips. Definitely level your cake first. Add a bit of frosting between the round halves and the square. Use a fluffy type icing, not a ganache. You may need to 'build' up between the halves and the square.
I like to swirl the icing because it's beautiful, rustic, and forgiving.
To add a little extra pow to it, cut out a heart from a piece of cardstock, lay on top
Sprinkle powdered sugar over
There you have it. Easy, beautiful, tasty.
And who could say no to a chocolate heart?
No one, that's who!
May your day be lovely,
