I’m excited to introduce you today to one of my favorite bloggers-Anna from Crunchy Creamy Sweet. I’m guest posting at Anna’s blog as part of her Valentine’s Day blog event about how to make a heart cake without a heart shaped pan. I love Anna’s blog because she posts tons of delicious recipes, including lots of drool-worthy desserts like s’mores pops and these tiny and adorable sugar hearts. She also did an entire series of chocolate chip cookie recipes!

Anna recruited a bunch of awesome bloggers to do guest posts on Crunchy Creamy Sweet over the next couple of weeks, so keep checking back for tons of great Valentine’s Day recipes and giveaways too!

Here’s a teaser about my how-to post, but go to Anna’s blog to learn more! And don’t forget to check her out on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too.

    Something I learned in Camp Fire Girls –
    Slice off the rounded top, turn it over and you have a nice flat surface to work with. That might have prevented the uneven top.
    Never learned how to start a camp fire, but we did learn how to frost a cake!

    How would you make heart cupcakes

  8. Jenny writes:

    To Cynthia H. Bannister # 7 – use a large tray and form a diamond with the cupcakes like the square cake & place cupcakes on the sides like the half cakes.

    To Cynthia – Using cupcake liners, fill the liners 2/3 with batter. Place a marble in between the pan and liner, then bake. It’ll look like a heart :)
