Heart Pan - 8"
Of course, you can make any sort of cake in this 8" Heart-Shaped Cake Pan, but I've had this dripping chocolate idea going around in my head for awhile. We frequent a local bakery (Dolce Baking Co. in PV, for locals) that always has a case full of cakes with ganache dripping down the sides - it is a very alluring effect. I'm not so hot on ganache, so I made my favorite Milk Chocolate Glaze/Icing (melted butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar & milk - think Sheet Cake icing). Oh, my goodness. YUM. And easy... this could start to be a problem.
Here is the recipe and step-by-step instructions for creating a dripping chocolate glazed cake >
I recommend using Parchment Paper (you can find here) with the pan to make sure the cake comes out perfectly clean.
This year I've updated the dripping heart cake with buttercream flowers. They were so simple to make with these new Floral Tips I've discovered.
