So, I wanted to try to bake a cake within a cake and thought I would start with an easy one. I saw this technique on Pinterest and gave it a try.
Basically, I baked two pound cakes. The first one, with food coloring, and then cut out the hearts with a cookie cutter.
The main cake, I layered the bottom with the rest of the batter, then stacked the hearts in, the put the rest of the batter over the top.
I like the way it turned out for my first attempt. Next time, I thing I might do something to stabilize the hearts or whatever I want to make a little bit better. The hearts moved a little bit so I need to pay closer attention to keeping them in the middle.
