Its nearly valentines day and love hearts everywhere. My husband and I don’t really celebrate valentines day but we do acknowledge it. Every now and then we might get each other chocolate or I might bake something sweet and delicious like Love Heart Sponge.
Recently I have found my Grandmothers sponge recipe and I thought it would be a good idea to make these cute little love hearts. What are you going to make this Valentines??
Strawberry and Coconut Sponge Hearts
- 1/2 bottle of Strawberry topping
- 1 cup of desiccated coconut
Once the cake has cooled use a cookie cutter and cut your hearts out.
Put topping in a bowl and coconut on a plate.
Start dipping the hearts in the topping and remove any excess topping , then place on coconut plate and cover with coconut
Decorate: try piping whipped cream on top and some sprinkles.
Nutella and Cream Sponge
- 1-2 cups of Nutella
- approx. 2 cups of whipped cream
Once cake has cooled use cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes
Put Nutella in piping bag, and pipe on top of heart.
Pipe cream on top of the Nutella then place another sponge on top. Pipe Nutella on top and add sprinkles.
Decorate: Sprinkles of your choice.
