Step 1: Ingredients:

For the Cake:

165g (5.8oz) Caster Sugar

140g (5oz) Plain Flour

35g (1.2oz) Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder

120ml (4fl oz) Sunflower Oil

90ml (3fl oz) Red Wine

60ml (2fl oz) Milk

2 Small Eggs

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt

For the Filling:

120g (4.2oz) Mascarpone Cheese

90g (3oz) Frozen Berries

30g (1oz) Brown Sugar

For Fondant Hearts:

60g (2oz) Pink Fondant

1 Tablespoon Icing Sugar

Step 2: 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!

<p>I wonder if you could get more hearts per batch if you baked the cake in a jelly roll pan.</p>
<p>How did we get from frozen berries in step 1 to cooled berry mix in step 2? They look so beautiful. </p>
<p>Hey! Thank you so much for letting me know, i have update the recipe. It makes sense now :)</p>
