5 Fun Valentine’s Day Cake Ideas
Valentine’s Day Cake Idea #1: Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cake
I made this Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cake to surprise my kids one year for Valentine’s Day! Kids make every holiday a bit more magical, don’t you think? There are a lot of different elements to this cake, so make sure to check out my original post for a step-by-step tutorial on putting it together and getting the best results with the cake layers, frostings, and everything in between.
Valentine’s Day Cake Idea #2: Red Velvet Bundt Cake
This would be a fun Valentine’s cake to whip up if you don’t have a lot of time this holiday. Something I love about my Red Velvet Bundt Cake is that I use red velvet emulsion instead of red food coloring. The emulsion really boosts the color and the flavor, making this cake that much better. If you can’t find red velvet emulsion, red food coloring is totally fine to use. It will still taste amazing!
Valentine’s Day Cake Idea #3: Pink Velvet Cake with Raspberry Buttercream
My Pink Velvet Cake with Raspberry Buttercream is a fun twist to the traditional red velvet cake. For this pink velvet cake, I use my favorite vanilla cake recipe and add in just a couple of drops of food coloring to get the pink color. I cannot get over how pink and tender these cake layers look! Adding the fresh raspberries on top is the perfect finishing touch.
Valentine’s Day Cake Idea #4: Strawberry Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake
Chocolate-covered strawberries, anyone? I had so much fun making this Strawberry Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake. The strawberry buttercream is really the star of the show because it tastes more like strawberries and cream. And it pairs so perfectly with the slightly bitter dark chocolate cake layers and chocolate ganache. I promise you will fall in love when you take that first bite!
Valentine’s Day Cake Idea #5: Old Fashioned Cherry Chip Cake
I had a lot of fun playing around with the recipe for my Old Fashioned Cherry Chip Cake. There are several ways to get the color and flavors you want to pop the most, so check out my original post to see my tips on getting the best results. This vintage Valentine’s Day cake would be a hit at any Valentine’s Day party!
