Hidden Heart Valentine’s Cake

You will adore this Hidden Heart Valentine’s Cake if you are looking to make something special for Valentine’s Day. This would be great to surprise the family or a sweetheart or maybe a friend or neighbor. This Valentine’s Day Cake is simple just takes some time to make. I made ours in the evening and had it ready for the next morning. I really wanted to try making these so I could surprise the kids with them in their lunchboxes. So cute and tasty. The kids were surprised and asked how I got the heart in the middle ha ha. They thought the idea was so gosh darn cute (just like I did).

I purchased my cookie cutter for these on Amazon. You can purchase the same Wilton Comfort Grip Double Heart Cookie Cutter if you would like to make your Hidden Heart Valentine’s Cake the same as mine. Note that any heart cookie cutter would work with this idea. i just thought it was too cute and will make a great looking cookie too!

In a medium bowl, put powdered sugar and slowly add milk until desired consistency is reached.

Pound Cake is one of those desserts that I do not make often. I think that will change as I had forgot how tasty they can be. I plan to give this heart in the middle idea a try with a couple other Valentine’s Day Treats. The Hidden Heart Valentine’s Cake was such a cute idea that it may be hard to make something as cute and adorable.
