Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
  2. Combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl.
  3. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pans.
  4. Bake 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean of crumbs.
  5. Cool cakes on wire rack for 25 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and cool completely. Cut each layer in half horizontally using a serrated knife.
  6. Spread flat side of one cake layer with 1/3 of the whipped topping. Repeat twice. Top with fourth cake layer and spread frosting on top. Garnish, if desired, with chocolate hearts.
  7. Baking Tip: To make chocolate hearts, spread melted semi-sweet chocolate 1/8-inch thick onto sheet pan lined with wax paper. When chocolate is almost set, use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Chill until firm; then gently push out hearts.
