I love Valentine’s Day. I love the sweet treats that the holiday brings. My idea was to create a cake for two to share.
I always make sure to weigh each 8″ round pan with the batter in it to make sure I will be getting even layers.
After baking, I let the cakes cool then cut them each in half lengthwise to form 4 layers. This cake required only two of the layers so I wrapped up the other two layers and put them in the
freezer for use at a later date.
I then cut out the layers with my round cookie cutters.
Next I tinted my vanilla frosting to add two colors: Orange and Yellow. I kept 1/3 of the frosting white.
I alternated the yellow and white frosting for the layers, then frosted the entire cake with the orange frosting.
I then sprinkled on shredded coconut and gently pressed it into the sides.
There are so many variations you can do with this cake. You could chose different shaped cookie cutters, a different cake flavor (or multiple flavors),
a different flavor frosting or filling for the layers, a different topping for the outside or a vary the height of the cake by how many layers you choose.
You can even vary the size of the cake. What about doing a cupcake sized layer cake for one? What are your favorite flavors and ideas?
