All you need to do is:
Prepare the boxed cake as per instructions given on the box. Divide in layers.
Place the chocolate ships and shortening in a bowl and melt in microwave at medium heat for 30 seconds. Heat for additional 10 seconds until melted fully and smooth.
Trace a heart with pencil on a piece of baking paper. Now, pipe the melted chocolate using a piping bag on to the traced heart and freeze until firm.
Use the prepared frosting between the layers and on top and side to build the cake. Now take remaining frosting in a piping bag and pipe rosettes on top of the cake. Unwrap the Hugs candy and place one candy on top of each rosette. Now take the Kisses Candy and place along the edges of the cake.
Now take the frozen heart out and place in the middle of the cake.
Cover and refrigerate the cake until firm. Serve slightly cold.
