Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re celebrating with your person or your gal pals, there’s always cause for cake. I thought it would be fun to make a sheet cake into a shape. I’ve seen some pretty basic concepts floating around social media and decided to give a heart a try!
1 box white cake mix
1 box (3-3.4 oz) raspberry jello
3 tbsps sugar
3 tbsps all purpose flour
1/2 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 cup finely chopped raspberries
4+ cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp milk or cream
1/3 cup raspberry jam
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8 in circle and square pan. Mix all ingredients until well combined and smooth. Distribute between both pans evenly, and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove pans from oven and let cool completely before frosting.
To max frosting, beat butter on high speed for 3 minutes. Add in 3 cups of powdered sugar, mixing after each cup is added. Add in jam, milk, vanilla, and salt, and beat on medium-high for 1-2 minutes. Gauge consistency of powdered sugar and add in more as you see fit. It will likely need at least one more cup. Mix frosting until completely combined and smooth.
To assemble the cake, cut the circle in half. Place one half of the circle with the side that has been cut completely flush with a side of the square cake. Do the same with the other half of the circle, and place it against a side of the square that is beside where you previously placed the cake half. This will form a heart. Then, ice and decorate the cake as normal.
Hope you enjoy this easy, cute Valentine’s Day cake! Come back next week to see what I did with the cake that I dropped lol
