some thirty odd years ago, i made a big heart shaped cake for my Mississippi bf, Steve--or Teeb, as i affectionately called him.
if you bake a layer cake recipe in one 8" round and one 8" square pan, you can make a big heart if you cut the round layer in half and place one half on each of 2 adjoining sides of the square layer.
i frosted it in pink, and added this in big red letters:
somewhere in the archives i have a picture of him holding it.
aww, what a sweet memory! :)
hope all y'all have a happy.
