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.

It looks lovely! And just because it isn't perfect, it is perfect  Wink

You bake the heart-cake twice, isn't the cake too dry (not sure if that is the right sentence, but I think you get it anyway) Just asking...

Anyway, I love it! Great attempt if you ask me!

Thanks! It actually is pretty moist, maybe because I made a pound cake and they are pretty dense. I am thinking that if I use a regular cake next time, I might use pudding in the mix to keep it moist.
