A woman who lives near Corpus Christi is baking heart shaped cakes for Valentine's day as fast as she can.  But these cakes really are heart shaped. 

Jessica Wolfe's custom cakes have four chambers, and ventricles, and coronary arteries, and a pericardium. 

Wolfe says she's a horror movie fan."I love anything sculpted, I love things that are different. I wanted to try it and see what happens.  I like the way it came out.  Apparently everyone else did too."

She looked up reference photos online to sculpt it. It is two layers of strawberry cream and vanilla almond butter cream and it is hand painted.

Pictures of her creations on her Facebook page began to go viral with over a million and a half views. 

She says they're a huge hit with doctors, nurses and medical students. "They are wanting other stuff as well, things they specialize in in their specific medical field. Kidneys are huge, brains, a couple of people have asked about uteruses."

She bakes them in her own kitchen and can only pump out a few a day. 

As she has a cottage license, the cakes cannot be shipped, only picked up, so demand has far exceeded supply
