We are excited to share a recipe from Jahziel Soto of Haute Cakes for this fun Valentine's Day cake. See what Jahziel had to say about her cake then read on for the full recipe! 

"When I see candy I want to put it on a cake. It doesn't stop with candy, I am a fan of all things delicious and beautiful going on cakes. Give me a theme, fruit, candy, chocolate, popcorn, macaroons, flowers, anything! I will use it somehow. The style of cake I focus on is very popular in Australia right now and so completely different from anything I have seen in the U.S. I just want everybody to have fun and enjoy themselves and what a better way to do it than with some crazy cake! Am I right?!" - Jahziel, Haute Cakes
