17 Breakable Chocolate Hearts You’ll Want to Give This Valentine’s Day
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, long gone are the days that you could put off picking up a simple box of chocolates on the way home. And, let’s be real, only about of four of those were edible anyway. But, that’s ok, because someone invented breakable chocolate hearts.
The molded geometric chocolate hearts come paired with a hammer so you can smash it open to reveal all the goodies inside. It’s like a pinata, but instead of getting dizzy, you just get the stress relief. Kurt Cobain would be so proud.
How to make this loaf cake
First, make the strawberry pound cake for the center.
In a large bowl, cream the butter until smooth. Scrape down the sides, add the sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy (about 1-2 minutes). Scrape down the sides.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, salt, strawberry emulsion and 4-5 drops of red food gel coloring.
With your mixer on low, slowly pour the egg mixture into the batter. Once all of the mixture has been added, increase the speed to medium-high and beat for 1-2 minutes.
With the mixer back on low, begin added the flour 1/3 cup at a time. Once all of the flour has been added, scrape down the sides, turn the mixer up to medium and beat for 1-2 minutes.
Pour the batter into a parchment paper lined 9″x9″ pan, smooth with an offset spatula and bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes.
Second, cut out the cake hearts.
While the cake is still warm (but cool enough to handle), use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart-shaped pieces of cake.
Pro-tip: If you’re looking for ways to use up all that leftover strawberry pound cake, it’s great in homemade ice cream or for making cake pops. If you’re not using it immediately, simply drop it in a ziploc bag and freezer it for later.
Third, make the rest of the pound cake.
For this step, you’re going to repeat all of the steps for making the batter from step one, but with the ingredients for the vanilla pound cake.
Once your batter is ready, spread a thin half-inch layer of batter in the bottom of a loaf pan.
Place the heart-shaped pieces of pound cake in a line in the loaf pan leaving about 1/2″ of space at either end.
Gently start pouring the remaining vanilla batter around and over the top of the hearts, stopping occasionally to press it down around the heart, making sure it doesn’t go between them.
Smooth the top of the cake with an offset spatula and bake at 350F for 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
Finally, make and top the cake with icing.
In a bowl, whisk together the icing until smooth and lump free.
Microwave the icing for 15-20 seconds. Cooking the icing will help it crust faster, which will keep it from streaming down the sides of your cake indefinitely. Allow the icing to cool for about a minute.
Stir the icing to break up any crust that might have formed and pour it over your cake. Top with sliced strawberries.

The Brief History of Cakes
Tempting Slice of Orange Cream Cake c.1920s
(Source: Adapted by Don Bell)
Did you know that simple cakes were baked in the Early Ages shortly after the discovery of flour? However, these first cakes didn't resemble the fancy varieties we enjoy today they were more like breads.
The words "bread" and "cake" were often used interchangeably in Medieval England, but confectionery cakes were thought of as flour-based sweet foods or sweetmeats, similar to what we now call fruit breads.
In essence, these flour-based sweetmeats were simply breads sweetened with sugar or honey and filled with combinations of preserved fruit, nuts, seeds, and spices. They were sometimes decorated with comfit candies or simply glazed over with sugar and white of egg.
It was around the 1650s that cakes similar to today's first appeared. Round cake molds and pans for baking cakes became quite popular, as did thick layers of sugar icing for decoration. Two centuries later, by the 1850s, Victorian cooks were using baking powder and finely refined flours.
Victorian cakes are unbeatable for their rich, light-as-a-feather texture and delicious good taste. The same goes for 20th century dessert cakes. You can't go wrong with the old fashioned cake recipes from these eras. You can find them on this site exactly as they were written by some of the finest cooks. Enjoy.
