How to bake hearts inside a cake

How to put an image inside a cake so each piece cut is the same.

List of Materials

  • baked cake, the colour you want inside

  • shaped cutter

  • baking nail

  • cake mix


Cut small wedges, one at a time as needed, out of your baked coloured cake.

I am using a heart cutter.

You want your pieces to be in a wedge shape so they will fit TIGHTLY together.


Here are all the pieces cut out ready to go.


This pink cake was baked in a 20cm pan so that it would fit in an 30cm pan for the second baking.


Now I have placed a little bit of cake batter in the bottom of my pan.

I also place a flower nail to get even baking.

The first attempt took the centre so long to get done that the edges were a bit dry.

The pieces will stand up by themselves.

Arrange the the round end of the hearts to the bottom of the tin so that the hearts are the not upside down when cake gets turned out.

Make sure to push down close to the last piece so you don't get any chocolate mix in between the hearts.


More stacking.


All stacked in tight.

Now you will cover with the batter you have left over...

I didn't use all my batter...

Just make sure you cover the pieces.



I baked this 30cm cake for about an hour at 180 degrees.

Just keep checking every 5 minutes or so until done.
