A mould that cleverly allows you to bake 6 heart shaped cakes at once.
So I tried it this weekend. I made a delicious chocolate cake with a strawberry and chocolate ganache topping.
I love the idea of this mould. The fact that you can make a cake that looks pleasing in full and when cut but I think I chose the wrong type of cake for it. To test it to the full I didn’t spray the mould with a cake release spray and to be honest, most of the cake came out. But I chose a very moist chocolate cake so some of it did stick.
I also chose a cake that I wanted to frost all over and this is not easy due to the shape. It’s really hard to get round all the corners with frosting so I would recommend making a cake that doesn’t need frosting round the sides.
When you cut the hearts it gives you a very large piece of cake…but I suppose it’s just a great excuse to share your cake with a loved one…did I just say share your cake?! Sorry, but it is a really large piece of cake!
This cake tasted amazing and after just one forkful I was asked to make it again next week for a Birthday party. So I’ll share the recipe next week.
Would I recommend this mould? Yes. Just keep it simple. It would be great to make a multi coloured jelly! The only other point I would make is that as it’s silicone, it can be hard to move around when you have your cake batter in it as it’s not a solid tin. So make sure the oven is open and ready for you!
