    Use a square cake pan. After baking, turn it so it's a diamond and trim the top to a heart shape.

    Thanks phatch.

    I was also told on a different forum that I could use one square pan and one round pan. Turn the square piece to look like a diamond and cut the round piece in half and use the two halves to make a heart.

    Hi jessiquina,

    I didn’t see anything at Target last week when I was there but I’ll just have to check it out again this week. Maybe they were just out of stock when I was there. I’ll check out epicurious.com too. Thanks so much!:bounce:

    This works for me as well... oh i just realized that this thread is old already but anyway even valentines day is still far away, our 20th anniversary is coming up in 6 weeks and your Red Velvet Cake is the perfect idea for the special day. :)
