So this is pale with bluey specks inside but descieved by a cute baby pink fondant love heart!

200g self raising flour,
250g brown sugar,
150g soft butter,
1 tsp baking powder,
2 eggs,
100ml milk,
1 tsp vanilla extract,
1 tsp blue food colouring,  (optional)
100g fresh blueberries.

250g (approx) white fondant,
3 drops of red food gel colouring/0.5 tsp red liquid food colouring/1 tsp red fondant,
5 tbsp icing sugar,
1 tsp cold water.

In a bowl cream the butter and sugar together. Add one at egg at a time to the butter mixture. In a cup mix together the milk, vanilla and food colouring. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and blueberries. Add the milk mixture to the dry mixture. Bake in a 180oC oven for 30-40 minutes until skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool.
Massage the red into the white fondant until all combined and it isn't marbled.
Roll our the pink fondant.
Cut the cake neatly into an even heart. Cover with fondant. In a small bowl mix together the icing sugar and water until a thick runny mixture has formed. You can add any food colouring to this that you want. Place in a small piping bad or parchment bag and pipe the desired words on top. For example- BE MINE, KISS ME, CUTIE PIE, I LOVE YOU, SWEETHEART...
Enjoy :')
