Valentine’s Cake

To make the cake you require the following ingredients.

1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Mix butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs; mix well. Add flour and baking powder; mix well. Bake in 350 degree oven approximately 25 minutes in a heart shaped pan.

To make the icing you require the following ingredients.

1/2 c. solid vegetable shortening
1/2 c. butter softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 c. confectioner’s sugar
2 Tbsp milk
Few drops red colour

In large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer.

Add vanilla.

Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed.

Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often.

When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry.

Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

For red Icing (stiff consistency), omit butter; substitute an additional 1/2 cup shortening for butter. Add few drops of red colour and whip well.

Final preparation:

Place the cake on a clean plate and cover with the white icing. Then with the desired nozzle pipe the corners with the red icing and write the wording using the same red icing.
