Easy Valentine's Day Cake

Valentine's Day is around the corner! This is a fun recipe for a semi-homemade cake that is delicious! I made a box vanilla cake, homemade buttercream frosting, and homemade chocolate ganache filling. I just used red food coloring to dye some of the buttercream and piped a sweet message on the cake. You're family/significant other/husband will love this!

Ganache Filling

- 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsp. unsalted butter

1. In a small saucepan, heat your heavy whipping cream until it starts to boil.
2. In a separate bowl, place your chocolate chips. Pour your hot heavy whipping cream on top and mix together until melted.
3. Add your butter and continue to mix. Allow to cool before frosting your cake.

Buttercream Frosting

- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp. milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla

1. Beat butter and powdered sugar until fluffy.
2. Add your vanilla and milk.
3. Continue to beat for 3-4 minutes.
