I’m excited to introduce you today to one of my favorite bloggers-Anna from Crunchy Creamy Sweet.

    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!

    Hi Stephanie! Just popping over from Crunchy Creamy Sweet to tell you what a fabulous idea this cake is! How easy …yet I would never have thought of it. I love hearts….especially when they are made of chocolate cake! : )

    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 🙂
