I need to make heart shaped cake but don't have a heart shaped cake pan and would rather not have to buy one. I have seen some pictures online where you take a square pan and round pound to make a heart shape. Like in this picture.
Has anyone done it? It looks like it should work fine but it is for a client so I need to make sure it ends up looking good.
Sure have. It works just fine. Once it is iced one cannot tell a heart pan was not used.
I suggest you trim the edges of the sq a bit so the 1/2 round fits perfectly against it. Put some b'cream on as a glue to hold it together. (Notice in the pic one side does not fit snug?)
Very cute for those who do not want to buy a heart pan. I am presuming both the square and round pans have to be the same size (like both 8 or 9 inch pans).

You are right. Remember if using anything bigger than 8"ers it will be a very big heart!
