Mini Valentine's Day Heart Funfetti Cakes

You will need:
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon 
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sprinkles 
(plus more for the sprinkles on the frosting)

I honestly don't even remember where I got these mini cake pans from, but they were cute, so I bought them! Typical right? Well I figured with Valentine's Day coming up, it was the perfect time to use them! 
They didn't turn out quite as "hearty" as I had hoped once they were frosted..but they tasted yummy! 

So here's what I did: 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Mix flour and baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.
3. Beat sugar and butter on medium-high speed for about 3 minutes.
4. Lower speed, and add eggs, one at a time. Scrape bowl as needed.
5. Add vanilla, and mix until well combined. 
6. Reduce mixer speed to low, and add half of the flour/baking powder mixture. Mix.
7. Pour in milk, mix.
8. Add other half of the flour/baking powder mixture. Mix until well combined. 
9. Fold in sprinkles with a spatula.
10. Fill mini cake tins with batter. (As you'll see in my pictures, I filled them about 2/3 full, it was way too much, and next time I'll only be filling it about 1/3-1/2 full)
11. Bake for 18-25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (Like I said, I filled mine way too full, so they took awhile.. checking with a toothpick is just always the way to go, every oven is different!)
12. Allow them to cool for a few minutes, and remove cake from pan.
13. Allow to cool completely, and frost the cakes! 
14. Top with sprinkles!

  2. this is pretty and looks tummy too. I love pretty food! Hugs P.S. I invite you to share this at my Thursday hop ( its still open)

  3. You post many good recipes. You always use ingredients that I usually have anyway, or could easily get at the store. A lot of people make these treats over-complicated, in my opinion.

  4. I am a sucker for cake and when it's heart shaped even better!

  5. 1. I love your name!
    2. Those look deeelish. Make anything a heart shape and it tastes 1000 times better. Seriously. It's science.

  8. How cute! I love the little cake tins, they're adorable!

  9. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I've seen the Betty Crocker cake mixes , but I never knew that there was a homemade recipe for one. :p Seems nicer, because it looks like there are more sprinkles in the cake (and you get to control how many sprinkles you have in it) this way. :)
