  • Difficulty:
  • Serving: 6
  • Preparation: 10
  • Cook time: 15
  • Passive time: 5


  • 1 Box Greens Vanilla Sponge Mix
  • 2 Medium Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Food Gel Colouring
  • 2 7" Cake Tin
  • 50 g Softened Butter
  • 280 g Icing Sugar
  • 6 Teaspoon Water



Follow the vanilla sponge mix instructions.

Preheat the oven to 200 °C, (170°C for a fan oven), or Gas Mark 6. Generously grease 2×7 inch cake tins and line with greaseproof paper.

Mix the cake mix, adding 2 eggs, 50g softened butter and 100ml water in a large bowl on low speed for 1 minute until moistened. Add the cocoa and red food gel to the mixture. Whisk at high speed for 2 minutes, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.

Pour equally into the 2 cake tins.

Bake for 15-16 mins in centre of oven until it has risen and firm to the touch. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Once cool, carefully cut a heart shape out of each cake.

Blitz leftover cut-offs of cake in a food processor to make the coating.

Make the buttercream for the filling and topping.

Sprinkle the blitzed cake on top.
