SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Not feeling the Valentine's Day spirit this year? One Salem café made a cake for those who aren't feeling the love this year.

Roseadela's, a café and chocolate shop is selling an "anti-Valentine's Day" cake for those who are feeling hungrier for cake than love.

The lemon mascarpone cakes are covered in white creamy frosting with a thick red blood-like mixture oozing out of the top where a mini cleaver is impaling the cake. "The strawberry comes out like blood, and we have a little keepsake knife," Co-Owner Jessica Manganello told WBZ's Brooke McCarthy.

Manganello came up with the idea behind the bloody broken heart Valentine's Day cake. She feels that people should treat themselves this Valentine's Day — whether or not they are in a romantic relationship.

"I think it's a fun kind of message," she said.

"I thought it would be really fun to do something that's kind of anti-Valentine's Day, something for the rest of us," Manganello said. "The people were like, 'no we're not feeling lovey-dovey right now.'"

She said the cake has been a big hit among the Salem community.
