Picture of Directions:

Cake:

Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a large bowl. Add sugar & salt. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.

Pour in the oil, milk and add eggs. Using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients until you get nice smooth batter. Pour in wine – a small amount at a time. After each addition, mix well. Line 2 round cake tins with baking paper (The tins should be 20cm/8inch wide. If using one 20cm/8inch cake tin, then this has to be at least 15cm/6 inch high).

Pour in the mixture and place in a preheated oven. Bake at 180 Celsius/ 350 Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Cool completely. Trim off the top part if necessary.

Filling:

In a frying pan (or sauce pan) simmer berries with sugar for about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool down.

In a bowl whisk together mascarpone, icing sugar and cooled berry mix until smooth.

Fondant Hearts:

Roll out the fondant and cut out 4 hearts that are smaller than the cake hearts.

Heart Assembling:

Cut 4 hearts out of each cake. Take 4 of them and spread/pipe the filling over. Cover with another cake heart. Dust with icing sugar. Place a fondant heart on top and you are done!

I wonder if you could get more hearts per batch if you baked the cake in a jelly roll pan.

How did we get from frozen berries in step 1 to cooled berry mix in step 2? They look so beautiful.

Thanks. I love mascarpone. I have never made a berry version. I bet it is fantastic. I guess I will find out soon.
