Heart Shaped Cake

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I received a request for a cake for this occasion.  I decided to decorate it into the shape of a heart.  The flavour -- red velvet.

First I baked two 8" rounds

I  folded an 8"x11" sheet of paper in half and drew out half a heart. 
I centered it in the middle of the cake and carved around it. 
 I then flipped the paper to the other side and carved again.  Do this to the second cake.

And there we go.

I layer the cake and the process begins

The crumb coat

Ahhh.... A smooth finish

And we're done!

Happy Valentine's Barbie and Sheldon!
