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.
