Bake for 25-30 mins until cake is risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave cake to cool 30 mins, then invert onto cooling rack and leave to cool completely. 5. For icing, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in confectioners' sugar and vanilla. 6. Turn cake right side up unto a cutting board. Cut out 4 hearts using a 4" cutter. 7.
