Place the mixture into the heart shaped tin and bake in the oven for 40 – 45 minutes until sponge is risen and springs back when lightly touched. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes before removing onto a cooling rack.

To make the icing: Melt the chocolate as above. Place the butter into a large bowl and gradually beat in the icing sugar, add the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate and beat until smooth.

Spread the chocolate icing over the top of the cake, running the knife horizontally to make a pattern. Dust with cocoa to serve.
