I'm a very amateur baker - am ok with following a recipe for coffee and walnut cake, banana loaf, scones etc. I'd like to make a birthday cake for my mum's 6th birthday although I've never done icing or anything. Any ideas?

60th obviously! Not 6th!

I'd go for something where you can hide any uneven ness if you're not that seasoned a baker so something with choc fingers, kit kat or similar round the edges.

How many are you feeding with it?
