Swoon: These Heart-Shaped Bundt Pans Are 20% Off and Only at Williams Sonoma
Soon, it will be Valentine's Day, so there's arguably no better time to whip up sweet desserts with romantic details. You can make cake pops coated with heart-shaped sprinkles, cake jars stuffed with pink buttercream, or sugar cookies designed to look like love letters. And if cakes are your favorite dessert to bake, you're in luck: The Nordic Ware Scallop Heart Bundt Pan and Nordic Ware Elegant Heart Bundt Pan are both 20% off at Williams Sonoma right now.
Nordic Ware is a chef-loved brand, and both of these heart-shaped pans are exclusively sold at Williams Sonoma. The Scallop Heart Bundt Pan will help you make a three-tiered heart-shaped cake with scalloped edges and a crisp heart cutout in the center. It measures 10.5 inches by 9.75 inches, and it stands 4.25 inches high. Originally $40, it's on sale right now for $32, so you can save $8.

If you'd rather bake a cake with sculpted, ruffled detail on its top surface rather than around the edges, then opt for the Elegant Heart Bundt Pan, also $32. Though slightly wider, this pan measures just 3.75 inches high.

Both pans are made from nonstick aluminum, so your creation should slide out easily and keep its adorable shape post-oven. (For best results, flour the pan before pouring batter in and allow the cake to fully cool before removing it.) They can withstand ovens up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and should be gently hand-washed—so no metal scouring pads.
And when it comes time to decorate your cake, you can try out different types of glazes, such as almond, ganache, or lemon. The pinkish-red of a strawberry glaze or grape glaze may be especially appropriate for the holiday. Then, top it with sprinkles or berries for an extra sweet touch. Confectioners' sugar is also an option if you want to play up the cake's delicate shape and crinkle details.
