Valentine’s birthday (heart shaped) cake.

I imagine if you have a birthday that falls on or around Valentine’s day you probably end up with roses or heart shaped gifts quite frequently! This chocolate cake was for a very sweet four year old and I enjoyed the opportunity to get the heart shaped cake tins out! The chocolate Italian meringue buttercream is always nice to work with – it is easy to get a lovely, smooth finish and the resulting cake was pretty and perfect for a birthday in mid February!
