Muji Gateau Au Chocolate cake mix

So, Valentine's Day has been and gone for another year but White Day is fast approaching... and I only got my hands on this last night. Anyway, I'm personally I'm fond of chocolate and love-hearts all year round. 

From what I've read, Valentine's Day is celebrated in Japan with the ladies giving gifts of chocolate as an expression of love, Honmei-choco, or social obligation, Giri-choco. And nothing says Valentine's Day quite like homemade sweet treats. Around Valentine's Day stores like Muji, Loft and Tokyu Hands have a variety of helpful DIY baking mixes. 

As a big time lover of love-heart shaped things, I was quite fittingly given a box of the Muji Gateau Au Chocolate cake mix. Once the cake is baked and cut each slice is an adorable chocolate heart! Super cute!!

I haven't baked it yet but if turns out OK I'll post photos of the final result.
