Hello,

About a month ago I purchased a set of heart shaped pans - it was an impulse buy!

I now regret buying them since I don't really see any uses for them other then the obvious valentine's day cake. I'm just a hobby baker and only bake and decorate for family and friends.

I'm looking for ways to use the pan to make something that isn't necessarily a heart shape. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe cut the cake to alter somehow???

Thanks!

On the "most save cake photos" a couple days ago there was a cute plate of dinosaur cookies and one looked like it used a heart cookie cutter to make a dino head. Picture a heart sideways, the top bump was the top of the dino face and mouth, the bottom bump of the heart was the bottom of the mouth, a line between was the line between the lips. Very hard to describe though. Hope you can get an idea what it was. Maybe other cookies from a heart cutter could give more ideas for a heart cake pan.

I've seen a lady bug done with a heart pan. The top of the heart are the wings and the point is the head. Really cute.

Put 3 together and make a big clover; put 4 together and make a big shamrock.

I just upload my turkey and fish, you should see it in my photos in about 30 minutes.
For roasted turkey I use two heart shaped cakes, I cut one in half to make body and second cake I use for remaining parts and stuffing.

And for fish I use one heart cake for body(just turn it sideway) and cupcake for tale.I think now you can imagine it.

I also saw someone had ghost cake made with upsidedown heart cake.
