Sweetheart Cake

V-day cake slice

Sometimes I feel a bit like Mister Toad. I'll get wild food idea in my head and I can't shake it, I just really have to see it through. I was like that with some of my more infamous cupcakes (Lady Gaga! Liza!), my 101 pie Pi Day contest entry and this Sweetheart Cake I made for my menfolk in advance of V-Day...

Inspired by the Rainbow Layer cake I saw on the Martha Stewart show, I was stuck with the idea of making a Valentine's themed rainbow playing with lots of reds and pinks. The cake would be heart-shaped, natch, with cream cheese frosting between all the layers.

Constructing this cake is actually really simple. You just use a couple boxed white cake mixes, food coloring and lots of love. It's fun to make and even more fun to eat. Not to mention a great way to say "I love hue" on V-day or any day.

Full instructions are up on Instructables.
