Valentines Day Cakes

For my hubby I made some vanilla yellow cakes in the shapes of hearts from scratch. 
The recipe is nothing special but the secret to fluffy cake is having room temperature warm eggs and butter. They whip up fluffier at room temperature.
 Then i made some vanilla cream frosting with a little red food coloring to match the theme.
then once i found my heart cookie cutter i placed it  on the cakes and put rainbow sprinkles in them to make cute sprinkley heart shapes.
The cakes also have a marionberry jam filling to add a little something to all that vanilla flavor.
They tasted great and Hubby was quite surprised and happy to come home to baking of treats.
No baking is complete without a trusty kitten to keep you company.
Princess Scarr managed to fit herself perfectly into an empty stropewaffle box.
Lol my hubby says she looks like a hotdog in it.

Hope you all had a great Valentines Day with treats and fun.
