Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350. Mix one package of Pound Cake (according to package directions). Add 6 capfuls of red food coloring and mix until all the batter is colored. Bake for one hour. Remove from oven, let cool.

  • Step 2

    Once cool, cut into 3/4″-1″ slices. Then using the heart cookie cutter cut heart shapes. I am usually able to get at least 2 hearts from each slice.

  • Step 3

    Mix together the second package of Pound Cake Mix.
    In a second (or a cleaned) loaf pan, place enough batter (about 1 1/2 cups) to fill the pan about 1″.
    Beginning 1/2″ from the en of the loaf pan, place your hearts in the center of the batter.

  • Step 4

    Place the remaining batter on top and all around the sides of the hearts.
    Bake for 1 hour at 350F

  • Step 5

    Remove from oven. Let it cool completely and then slice and be surprised!

  • Step 6

    This treat is really so easy to make…but it looks like it took so much effort…and better yet everyone loves the surprise and the taste of course!
