Heart shaped carrots are a fun addition to any recipe calling for sliced carrots. Here is how to make them:

Peel and wash the carrot. Then using a knife, slice a "v" shape out of the full length of the carrot. Remove the middle piece.

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.

    Surprise your Valentine by slipping a little red heart into their milk. These heart ice cubes are made out of milk so they won't water it down and the milk will turn a fun pink color as they melt!

    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!

    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.
