Heart Shaped Cake With Berries is not only beautiful and delicious, but it brings a welcome burst of colors. It’s perfect for a special occasion or just for special someone…
This cake is so easy to make with some simple hacks. It may come as a surprise that you don’t need a heart shaped cake pan round and square pans such as these ones about 8 inches across. Apart from that, you will be good to go.
We’ve suggested funfetti cake mix, but you can use whatever flavor you prefer. You can even get away with a chocolate cake if you’re a chocaholic because the icing will hide the cake color. We’ve included four types of berries for fun, but you’re having trouble finding the varieties you want then just using strawberries will work.
