After cooling the cake for 15-20 minutes, you can cut out the cake hearts:
After cutting them out from the pink cake, I let them stay in the fridge for about 10 minutes just to let them become firm before putting them in the white cake mix batter:
Follow the instructions on the cake box and tadaaaah! You now have your white cake mix batter, ready for baking!
Add the white cake batter to the cake pan and place the cake hearts on the cake batter, like this:

Into a large bowl, add the softened butter and vanilla extract:
Slowly add the powdered sugar while mixing it with a handheld mixer or a stand mixer until it reaches a creamy and fluffy consistency. Set aside:
