Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! Today I've got something special for you. Cake!

One of my favorite food blogs called Not So Humble Pie featured a Valentine's Day cake that is sure to make the anatomist in you clap your hands and dance around in glee. Presenting: The Bleeding Heart Cake.

Ms. Humble is actually borrowing the recipe and supporting the cause of one Lily Vanilli. Lily Vanilli is teaming up with the charity Trekstock this Valentine's Day to offer people the chance to send their own edible bleeding heart to the one they love. A single bleeding heart cake is is priced at £7 and comes in a cute perspex box tied with a pink or red ribbon with a personal note. The cake is available exclusively through their website and 20% of the proceeds go directly to charity.

If you decide to make the cake yourself Lily Vanilli also provides the recipe. The cake is simpler to make than it looks, it is basically red velvet sponge cake, cream cheese frosting, and blackcurrant & cherry "blood." So if you like baking that something special for your special someone then try this out.
