3. Once the cake is baked, leave it to cool. 
4. While it's cooling, you can make the other cake (the normal victorian sponge cake, BUT DON'T BAKE IT (yet.)
5. So when the chocolate cake is cool, cut it into 8 slices, then cut a heart out of each slice. like this---
(You don't need the excess cake for the actual cake, so you can eat it during
the bake!

6. The next part is hard to explain, so I'll try my best then I'll leave you with a photo. Put 1/3 of the 'Step 4' Mix in a 1lb loaf tin. Line hearts in centre like this---

7. Then put the rest of the mix on the top and round the sides (without disturbing the hearts)
8. Put in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
