Pink Sponge Heart Cake with cream cheese icing


This recipe is great for any occasion... who wouldn't want a piece of a pink heart shaped cake. My two girls just love it... The reason why i use a cream cheese frosting and not butter cream is because my kids don't like cake when it is too sweet. The cream cheese breaks the sweet flavor and gives it almost a condensed milk mixed with lemon juice flavor. Tangy sweetness and refreshing. I always let my kids help my with decorating the cake. We just love creating memories in the kitc
