How to make Hidden Heart Cake:

  2. Take a heart shape cookie cutter and cut out a heart shape in every slice of cake. Keep the heart aside. (you can make cake pops with leftover cake)
  3. Now add 1/4 th of the greased pan with chocolate batter and gently tap on the counter to spread evenly.
  4. Arrange the hearts next to each other in the center of the loaf pan. Make sure there is no gap in between 2 hearts. pack them closely.
  5. Leave some space around the packed hearts, so that we can fill that space with chocolate batter and it hide the hearts.
