birthday cake

:a quick birthday cake:

A quick and easy birthday cake.. 

Cook your cake.

I really did cheat here and just used a packet mix chocolate cake that came with the icing.
(remember people I had already done 'girl ghost cakes' :-) )

Let cake cool and ice cake.

Print out the number that you need in roughly the right size..
Remember it doesn't need to be the perfect size, it is a quick cake.

Trace the number onto some baking paper and cut it out to use as your template.

Place the baking paper template onto the cake and push it down slightly so it sticks to the icing

Sprinkle with your choice of sprinkles.  You may need to gently push the sprinkles down a bit to make sure they stick.
 Lift the paper carefully to reveal your masterpiece


  1. I did wonder if you had used a template. :) Clever chooky.
    It doesn't matter if it is a packet mix - still tastes great! (And yes, you already earned your points with the other cakes!!!)
    Have a great weekend gorgeous!

  3. I like it - simple and highly effective!
