So I want to make a Companion Cube cake(from Portal) (looks something like this ). 

What's the best food based medium to make this sort of thing?  Should I use fondant? Or is there some better way to make a heart in the middle of the side of a cake?

Thanks for any advice!

Pound cake is very dense and forgiving. Fondant is a wonderful friend as long as you have the patience for it use that for most of your decoration and try experimenting with gum paste to do your heart and more 3-D bits. Chances are you might end up with one or two prototypes....
