Valentine Can Cake

Just for the four of us, my daughters, my husband and I, I wanted to make a small cake for Valentine's Day. I only have large baking tins, but the idea popped into my head to use an empty vegetable can as a baking tin. I love the result! The cake is just large enough to cut into four pieces.

  8. That's so cute, what a clever idea. and you made it look so fancy too!

  9. What a good idea. How did the tin hold up to the heat? Love the cake decorations!

    1. The tin holds up perfect. I used a tin that was coated with a sort of white paint on the inside (there were beans in it) and greased it with a lot of butter, so the cake came out of the mold easily.
