Using a potato peeler, begin shaping the heart by shaving the outside of the carrot, until it looks like a heart when looking down the length of the carrot.

Tip: Make A Heart Cake Without A Heart Shaped Pan

No need to buy a special heart-shaped pan when you want to make a heart-shaped cake. Use one 8 or 9 inch round pan plus one 8 or 9 inch square pan. When the baked cake is cooled, cut the round cake in half. Place the square cake on the serving plate to look like a diamond-shape. Put each half of the round cake on the top of both sides of the angled square cake to form a heart. Frost, decorate and enjoy!

Tip: Heart Shaped Bakeware for Valentine's Day

Cookies in Heart Muffin TinI inherited a tin for heart shaped muffins from my mother. Every year, I fill it with chocolate chip cookie dough to make large thick heart shaped chocolate-chip cookies for my husband. He loves them.

I also have heart shaped cake pans to make heart cakes and cheese-cakes. My favorite is a heart shaped red velvet cake with white frosting. Yum!

For Valentine's Day, I make a heart shaped meat loaf. You can add ketchup or any tomato based sauce that you prefer on top. If you have a heart shaped cake pan you can use that or just shape the meat yourself.

Aren't these little hearts cute? Guess you could use all kinds of shapes as long as you had the little cookie cutters. I asked the deli man to slice my cheese about 1/8" or so. I cut the shapes out out the cheese and placed it on the crackers.
