What’s the Best Way to Make Valentines Mini Cakes?

There’s nothing wrong with making a traditional homemade cake from scratch. I’ve done that plenty of times, and they turn out great. But I find that it’s not necessary when you can make a moist, fabulous cake using a cake mix – with consistent results.

Make this easy on yourself, particularly if you’re a beginner baker or a mom with a lot on your plate like me. I don’t see the need to overcomplicate! LOL!

How Do You Store Mini Bundt Cakes?

We recommend storing your mini cakes in an airtight container and keeping them at room temperature. If you’d like to keep the cakes for longer, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Ensure you take the cakes out at least 30 minutes before serving so they can reach room temperature.

Who doesn't LOVE (pun intended) a sweet tiny cake?! These Valentines Mini Cakes are the perfect one-person treat for your sweet!



  • 6 Strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup Melting Chocolate Wafers
  • 2 tbsp Valentines Sprinkles


  • 1 box White Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup Oil
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tsp Strawberry Extract
  • 1 tsp Pink Cake Dye


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To make the mini cakes, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, water and extract.
  3. Whisk together well until the cake mix is thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Lightly coat each mini bundt pan with baking spray.
  5. Fill each of the mini bundt pans 2/3 full of the cake mix.
  6. Bake for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the innermost portion of the innermost bundt comes out clean.
  7. While that is baking, wash and completely dry each of the strawberries very well.
  8. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well between each increment, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  9. Dip the bottom 3/4 of each strawberry into the melted chocolate, then place the strawberry onto a piece of parchment paper to cool and the chocolate to harden.
  10. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
  11. Once cooled, drizzle the chocolate over the top of each cake, then top with sprinkles.
  12. Add a strawberry to the center top of each cake then enjoy!
