Hi…today my recipe is for all those who celebrate their Valentine’s Day. You can make this cake for your valentine and let them get surprised with this wonderful surprise heart cake. So celebrate this Valentine’s day with this surprise heart cake. Last month was our third wedding anniversary, I planned to make a cake for our anniversary. But unfortunately I was not not able to make cake.
So I thought I should make on this Valentine Day. OK, something about the cake. Here I made chocolate hearts. You can make any color hearts by adding food color. I thought of not to add any artificial colors because it is not good for us. So chocolate cake came into my mind. I am sure that you will like this cake very much and give this as a gift to your valentine.
So try it out and let me know what you think about.
