Valentine's Day Heart Cake (without using a heart pan)

For a last minute Valentine's Day dessert, make a simple and sweet heart cake. I doctored up a cake mix with some LorAnn Oils cherry super strength flavoring and Princess Cake and Cookie Flavor. I added a tiny bit of the cherry flavoring to the frosting as well, but just a hint.

Since I used a yellow cake mix, the cake turned a mix between orange and pink. The photo above makes it look more orange than it actually was. For a pure pink color, use a white cake mix.

To make the heart cake, I used two 9" pans, one round and one square. It is important that they are the same size so that the heart fits together. Bake as directed on the cake mix box, and let cool. Cut the circle in half and arrange as pictured above. Frost and add sprinkles. Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. VERY clever...thanks for showing how you did it. Love it.

    Happy Valentine's Day!! Stop by for my Valentine's post if you like.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Mexican Dorito Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Mexican Dorito Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
