I'm about to start making a chocolate birthday cake for DS's 6th birthday. I've made them previously but they've been decorated in a very simple manner and so didn't look much. This year I'd like to make a bit more of an effort, although I have very limited decorating skills! His birthday party will be at home and it will have a knights and princesses theme.

Could you please give me some ideas for decorating the cake? We don't like buttercream, fondant or icing etc so this is proving a bit of a stumbling block at the mo. hmm

Use Chocolate fingers cut to different heights to make a castle on the cake plus a couple of play mobile knights?

How about you cover the cake in just melted chocolate with a knob of butter added to keep it softish instead of icing.

Then you can build your decoration on that.

I am away to have a think about the knights/princesses theme. Are you making a round cake or rectangle/square?

Like the choc fingers idea.

The cake can be whatever shape, to be honest. I have round tins and a square tin.
