Heart cake pans aren’t just for Valentine’s day, they’re an excellent way to show someone that you love them year round. Heart shaped cake pans also work great for your special someone’s birthday or your anniversary. In this post I want to share some decorating tips for heart shaped cakes as well as show you some great deals on the pans themselves.
Obviously, there are infinite ways that you can decorate a heart shaped cake. You can go with simple pink frosting to make a beautiful cake, or even go as far as to create a full tiered cake with the works on it. Either way, be sure to practice any new techniques before decorating the final cake. You don’t want to past the point of no return on the final cake and realize that you messed up!
I recommend using pink fondant with a heart cake pan. The smooth pink surface looks very elegant and professional, and allows you the perfect canvas for a message to your sweetheart. If you’ve never used fondant before or haven’t used it with the awkward angles that are at the top of the heart, practice with it beforehand. If you don’t get it right the first time just pull it off, roll it, and try again.
Shopping for heart cake pans is easy as well. There are two places to get great deals on them. Amazon always has excellent prices and allows you to use the rest of their marketplace to get all of the other stuff that you need to make your occasion special. eBay is the place for cheap cake pans, and is a smarter choice when all you need is the pan and nothing else. Below I’ll show you some of the most popular heart pans as well as some mini heart cake pans, and after that you’ll see all of eBay’s current listings to buy what you need.

Like I said above, eBay is the place to get cheap cake pans. If you only need the pan and have everything else covered, here is where you’ll find the best deal. Scroll through their current listings or use the search box at the top to track down the exact pan you’re looking for.
