On this one day, Valentine's Day, everyone is allowed to indulge their sweet tooth to the utmost. My way of doing so this year, is by baking one of my favorite cakes, a pound cake, and decorating it pink ^_^ Here's my recipe, enjoy:
My Pretty Valentine's Cake

Valentine's Day Pound Cake

 - 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Shortening
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 cup Self Rising Flour
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence


1.) Preheat oven to 350°F/ 177°C. Grease and flour a round cake pan and set aside.
2.) In a mixer, cream butter and shortening together. Add sugar, a little at a time, then add the egg and beat until well blended.
3.) Sift dry ingredients into a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with milk, starting with flour and ending with the flour. Mix in the vanilla until well blended.
4.) Pour into the cake pan and bake for 40 - 50 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean.
5.) Remove pan from oven and let cool for at least 5 minutes, remove cake from pan and let it cool on a wire rack. Cool completely and then* frost the cake. Enjoy!
