Valentine's Day was always a big holiday when I was growing up. My grandparents would host a big brunch and my mom would make us fun heart-shaped treats like pink pancakes or heart-shaped eggs. As a kid, eating those fun heart-shaped goodies was the highlight of my day, which is why I'm carrying on the tradition with these cake batter waffles!

Heart-shaped cake batter waffles

These funfetti waffles are made with real cake mix, so each bite tastes like a big slice of cake. And honestly, what's better than cake for breakfast? Oh I'll tell you, cake topped with homemade whipped cream, of course!
