How to make different shapes for buns

So, how to make this gorgeous heart?

This is how: Roll out small portion from the dough, grease the surface with butter, sprinkle some poppy seeds or cinnamon and sugar.

Now roll it around itself:

Fold this log in half and cut the middle:

Open up the edges to outer side, and voila! You have your heart shape:
