Mini chocolate cake for two is a chocolate lovers dream. Rich chocolate cake is smothered in gorgeous dark chocolate frosting with a little special decorating. Perfect for Valentine’s Day, birthdays or a delicious treat to enjoy with your significant other.
Have you ever been out to dinner with a partner, good friend or relative and they order a slice of cake. When it arrives you feel like a bite and one bite turns into 2 and before you know it, you’ve eaten a lot of their cake?
This is where this cake for two comes in. It is the ideal size for 2 people and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not share with someone you love?
Homemade cake for two at home
Let’s face it, it is neither easy, nor cheap to go out on Valentine’s Day and I think anyones loved one appreciates a home-cooked meal anyway. If you’re cooking for someone, make this cake and you’ll see cupids arrow fly.
Not just for Valentine’s Day, make this cake for a cozy night in when you feel like eating cake, but not a whole cake (hello, portion control). Eat it all by yourself, no ones looking.
This decadent mini chocolate cake is made to look a little more elegant with a little two-tone frosting. To achieve this effect, I purchased a dual piping kit.
The kit includes special piping bags that have two compartments for two different colors of frosting and when it comes out of the bag, you get this lovely look. I am in no way a cake decorating expert (as you can see), but a little piping, I can manage.
How to make a chocolate heart
For the chocolate heart, I added melted chocolate to a ziptop bag and snipped off a corner. I piped the heart onto parchment paper and refrigerated it to let it harden. To make it even easier, you can print out a heart and place it under the parchment paper so you have an image to trace. How simple is that?
I use two, 4-inch x 2-inch (10 cm x 6 cm) round, springform cake pan.
I used a 4-inch x 2-inch (10 cm x 6 cm) cake pan that you can find online.
