The easiest way to make a heart-shaped cake is to use a heart-shaped mold. However, if you can’t find it, take two 8-inch square and circle baking pans. Once the cake is baked, cut the circle into two semicircles. Arrange the square so that the corners point toward you. Place one of the semicircles in the top left corner of the square cake. Similarly, put the other semicircle in the top right corner. Frost with heavy cream and serve.
