Make them!

  1. Make the cakes: Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl then divide the batter between 4 x individual heart-shaped silicone molds to fill to the top. Bake at 180C for 20 minutes until risen and firmed up.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate. Sprinkle over some dried rose petals in a silicone small heart chocolate mold. Then spoon the chocolate into each heart to fill to the top and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set. 
  3. Make the frosting: Melt the coconut oil and white chocolate then set aside to cool a little. Mix the icing sugar in a bowl with a dash of warm water then stir in the melted chocolate. Mix until you have a thick frosting.
  4. Once the cakes have cooled, pop out onto a wire rack then spread a generous layer of frosting on top of each.
  5. Add a heart in the middle then sprinkle over some of the dried flowers. Enjoy!
