  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  4. 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 cup water
  8. 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  9. 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  10. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. 1-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
  2. 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  3. 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  4. 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  5. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. Decorating icing and confetti candies
  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add the water, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Coat an 8-in. square baking dish with cooking spray and dust with flour; add butter.
  2. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, cocoa, milk, butter and vanilla until smooth; set aside. Transfer cake to a work surface. Using a 3- to 3-1/2-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, gently cut out four heart-shaped cakes (set cake scraps aside for another use).
  4. Place one heart on a serving plate; spread with some frosting. Top with a second cake; frost top and sides. Repeat with remaining cakes and frosting. Decorate with icing and candies. Yield: 2 servings.
