Hidden heart loaf cake

Hidden shape cakes have got to be one of our favourite food trends – there’s something so satisfying about cutting into a cake to reveal the hidden surprise within.

We knew how to do it with one shape in a cupcake so we thought we’d challenge ourselves to do a whole loaf – with every slice revealing the same shape.

Sounds hard? It was actually pretty easy! Follow our step-by-step pics below to make your own. You can choose whatever shape you like – we chose the heart for Valentine’s Day.
