I'm also no cake maker or decorator but this is my DS's cake last week ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1402101643.233482.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1402101663.908855.jpg
I used a recipe off Pinterest which came out really nice and everyone raved about the cake (probably not so much my decorating but I tried haha)
Also if you use m&ms or smarties, bare in mind that you need to decorate it on the day as I did it the day before and all the colour ran!! It looked gross and I had to scrape them all off and redo them before the guests arrived.
If u want the recipe I used I can post it
