Mix all ingredients for dough one after the other together,ensuring that the butter has cooled, but not hardened again.Carefully mix until smooth.
Grease and flour a heart shaped cake tin of medium size with the doughmix and bake in preheated oven at 180c bottom shelf for about 45 minutes.Leave to stand for about 5-10 minutes to cool, then loosen edges with a thin knife and take the cake out of tin to cool.After cooling cut in half for a top and bottom heartshape

I have adapted this recipe to a none alcoholic version for children. I added a good tablespoon of powdered best chocolate to the dough and have made a chocolate butter icing to fill the cake.I added strawberries then topped with a strawberry jelly. I added the baked top and again spread the cake with butter icing, strawberries and strawberry jelly. I grated dark chocolate and added white chocolate stars. I decorated the sides with candy flowers.
