Hi Alicain

When you say a heart shaped outline do you mean a cake or just an impression of a heart?

If it is a cake, you could make a heart shaped cushion to sit in a tilted fashion on top of the square cake. You’d need to have it sitting on its on card and placed on the dowelled square cushion.

If it just like an impression under the sugarpaste of the square cake, you could do a heart bas relief.

To make the bas relief, crumble enough cake and mix it with melted chocolate until it can be shaped into the outline of a heart on top on the square cake. Once the outline sets, it can be covered at the same time as the square cake to create the heart impression.

There are couple of bas relief tutorials on the Cakeflix site. Just search in all the cake categories to find them. Also search ‘what is bas relief’ in the blog section for a little more information.

Hope this helps. ?
