My sister-in-law is requesting a cake for a bridal shower she's hosting. She sent me this picture.

I'm sure she found the cake posted on this site, so props to the decorator. Unfortunately, she just sent the pic, and not the link with any info from the decorator.

So, my question is, how do I get this shape? Is it a double layer that is carved freehand style? Or a heart-shaped pan with the end trimmed off, and two ball halves? How would you go about this?

Thank you so much for your input!

You could do it any way...but I think yeah probably a heart pan, either a double layer cake carved down, or a single layer heart cake with shallow ball pan halves.

Have fun!

I figured that part out. icon_smile.gif I'm just worried how to pull off the shaping of the cheeks themselves.

Like already mentioned, it can be done in many ways. You can use ball shape pans with lets say, a square. You can use a heart shape or you can even carve it from a sheetcake. Go with whatever floats your boat.
