Cake Pans — Heart Shaped Bakeware
Heart Shaped Cake Pan
If you would like to bake a cake in the shape of a heart then either of the following pans will help you get the best shape possible. When you make a heart shaped cake you can use a variety of decorating styles. One pan can potentially create several different styles of cakes. Keep in mind a heart shaped cake can be used for Valentines Day, a birthday, Mother’s Day, an anniversary, or a ‘thank you’ just because cake.
Pie & Tart Pans — Heart Shaped Bakeware
Heart Shaped Pie & Tart Pan
Make the best pie, tart, cheesecake, or flan you will ever serve. Regardless of the dessert, the heart shape is the most popular and carries a personal message. Prepare either dessert with your normal recipe, like you would if you were making a round cake, but set or bake it in the heart shaped pan instead.
For pies or cake with a shell or crust, you will want to be sure your pan has removable sides or bottom so it will be easy to remove the treat from the pan when it is ready to serve.

Muffin & Cupcake Pan — Heart Shaped Bakeware
Heart Shaped Cupcakes & Muffins
Cupcakes and muffins are another way to bake up a heart shaped treat. Decorate your cupcakes or muffins in you own unique design to express your love.
I will readily admit that I was skeptical of the silicone pans when they first hit the market. However, I have several now and they are really very easy to use. Their flexibility actually makes it easier to turn your baked goods out without breaking them. It is also not necessary to use cupcake liners with the silicone cupcake pans. Since the entire shape of these cupcakes are important to the overall finished appearance, I like not having to use cupcake liners when I am making heart shaped cupcakes. Since they are safe to use in just about any kitchen appliance, they are now my favorite cupcake pan.
You may even want to add a special filling to your cupcakes or muffins for an added surprise inside the heart shaped treats (such as cream cheese or strawberries). I found this awesome and easy recipe for a cream cheese filling for cupcakes and simply had to share it with you here. These would be really awesome heart shaped cupcakes!

Casserole — Heart Shaped Bakeware

Don’t forget the main dish. You can create your favorite casserole or one pot meal (stew or a roast) in a heart shaped casserole dish.
Having a bakeware pot like this which can go in the oven, or on the stove top, and then easily be used to serve your guests when it is ready, is a fabulous way to save another step in the process of getting your heart shaped meal on the table.
This cast iron casserole states that it can go in the dishwasher, but I wouldn’t personally put cast iron in the dishwasher. Not because it would hurt the dishwasher, but simply because I would want it to last for decades. I season my cast iron and the dishwasher would remove that much desired seasoning.
Bakeware Sets — Heart Shaped Bakeware
If you will be preparing a cake with several layers, or if you need to bake a lot of cupcakes or muffins, then you will want a set of bakeware that is sufficient to do the entire job as quickly as possible.
A heart shaped layer cake could be a great idea for a Valentine’s Day party, a wedding reception, a family reunion, an anniversary party and much more. But, it is a time consuming job to bake a layer cake if you have only one pan and you are having to wait for each layer to bake before you can start the next layer.
You will want to have all the pans needed before you start baking, so be sure to buy several individual pans or a tiered set to give you the ability to get the the cakes or cupcakes baked faster, cooled and ready to decorate all in one day.
A Special Homemade Gift
If you have a fabulous cupcake recipe you want to share with family and friends, you can buy multiple cupcake or muffin pans and make enough of the delicious treats to give several to each person. Include the recipe written on a recipe card and give them the pans, the cupcakes and the recipe card as a complete gift. Then they can make their own treats time and time again. Perhaps, they will even share with you in the future.
