  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 12 (3 5/8x3 1/2 x1-inch) heart-shaped cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, stir coffee powder in 1 tablespoon water until dissolved. In large bowl, beat cake mix, coffee mixture, 1 1/4 cups water, the oil, eggs and raspberry preserves with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Fill cake pans half full with batter.
  • 3
    Bake 15 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans to cooling rack; cool completely.
  • 4
    In medium microwavable bowl, microwave white chocolate and shortening uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until melted. If necessary, continue to microwave in 15-second increments, stirring until smooth.
  • 5
    Place waxed paper under cooling rack. Spoon melted chocolate over cakes. Decorate with sprinkles. Let stand until set.

Expert Tips

  • If your heart-shaped cake pans vary in size from those used in the recipe, your yield may vary. Bake the cakes in batches, if necessary, and cool the pans before reusing.
  • You can use dark or semisweet chocolate instead of white chocolate, if desired.
  • If the white chocolate mixture starts to harden before you’re done decorating the cakes, microwave in 30-second increments to soften. You can also melt the chocolate in a saucepan over low heat instead of in the microwave.
