Homemade Heart Cake

How to make a homemade heart-shaped cake for $6!


  • 1 square cake pan (about 8 inches)
  • 1 round cake pan (about 8 inches but the same size as the square pan)
  • Serving plate, large tray, wax paper, or parchment paper


  • 2 tubs pre-made frosting of choice
  • Non-stick spray
  • 1 box cake mix (usually you’ll need oil, water, and eggs for the mix)
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  • Prepare the square and circle cake pans with non-stick spray
  • Gather all of the ingredients according to your cake mix of choice (or make a homemade recipe!)
  • Mix all of the ingredients until smooth
  • Pour 1/2 of the cake batter into the square pan and 1/2 into the circle pan. Eyeball the cake batter to make sure the thickness of it in each pan looks similar.
  • Bake the cakes according to the cake mix recipe
  • Once cooled, remove the cakes from their pans
  • Cut the circle cake in half evenly
  • Position the square cake so it looks like a diamond, then place each half of the circle cake on top
  • Place the cake on a large plate or cake board. If you don’t have one, use wax paper or parchment paper and place the cake where you plan to serve it.
  • Liberally apply the frosting. It’s so easy! The frosting will fill in the imperfections and it will connect the 3 pieces
  • Add sprinkles, icing letters, birthday candles, whatever you want:)
