For the ganache, heat chocolate and cream together in a small bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring so that they form a glossy, homogenous mixture. Refrain from overheating.
Grease a 2-inch heart shaped cake tin and line it with parchment paper.
Heat butter and chocolate together in a microwave for 30 seconds to melt. Keep aside.
Whisk the egg yolk with sugar for a minute.
Whip egg white to soft peaks in a separate bowl. Add the chocolate/butter mixture, flour and a pinch of salt to the yolk and sugar mixture.
Incorporate the whipped egg whites gently with a rubber spatula. Don't overmix.
Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake at 180 degree celsius for 15-20 minutes. The cake is ready when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Few moist crumbs are fine.
Refrigerate the cake for an hour before frosting.
Frost with ganache. Drip hazelnut on the edges with the help of a teaspoon.
Finish by decorating with rose petals and rainbow sprinkles.
