After seeing store bought pre-made kiddies birthday cakes, I decided to set myself a challenge and produce one cheaper, can be made by ANYONE and from easly accessed local supermarket products AND it took me just 10 minutes to make 

I think I succeeded on all fronts? Well my grand daughter LOVED it anyway

Let me know what you think?

Chef!!! This is as shocking as the first sight of " Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking" laugh !!!

ahhhh well, a little cheating a la Delia never goes amiss from time to time. especially when its in a good cause. Like I said, I set myslef a challenge to better a store bought cake with easy components. Which hopefully may inspire others to at least give it a go, or give them inspiration for other ideas. Any kitchen time, no matter how little is better than none at all wink

Besides, it can't alll be high brow cuisine. E.G. if I had posted the recipe etc for last year's birthday cake it would probably go above many/most readers heads and capabilities and be a waste of time (see new pic posted here

PS .... cake was YUMMY, a comp,ete chocolate overload and we will all be working it off for the next week !!

Aw heck Chef, 

you make it sound like I was havin' a pop!.

The shock around Delia cheating was a load of tosh as far as I was concened. A lot of folks I know were prompted to start cooking for themselves because of that series.

T'was a bit cheeky of me to make the comment I guess :-(
