To cut your cake into a heart shape, cut the bottom edges of the cake on both sides to form the bottom V shape of the heart. Move those cut piece to the top to form the M shape of the heart. Use frosting to glue these edges on.

Frost your heart out
Once the crumb coat is set, continue frosting your entire cake. Turn it into a conversation heart by piping a saying on the top.
