Wow - this cake also a winner, both visually and sensory! It makes a great piece of eye candy! I am challenged still with writing on the sides of cakes but have purchased the stencil unit and am sure that will change my world. I am in NZ and cannot get your whipped filling here so have been experimenting with mousse (a little extra gelatine required) I have since made this cake many times, the latest time covering it in chocolate ganache and chocolate curls to create a death by chocolate! Highly recommend this mould as an essential item. Between this and red lipstick, you'll have no trouble with your self-esteem!

This cake look simple, but beware of box cake mixes which are typically light and moist...they can fall apart when trying to fill and layer this cake. Cutting into the cake to reveal the heart does not look as good as the picture. Either way, it still tastes good!
