I have posted this before. Df makes her own cakes. She has made a train one before using a swiss roll. Cuts it up into various size pieces and then ices over it. Decorates with smarties, dolly mixture etc. Not very good at these things personally.

I made a choc sponge with choc filling, iced it pink and covered it all over with jellybeans, dolly mixtures and little cake decoration roses, a kitsch delight!

Delia's "all in one sponge". It's idiot proof. Make it a chocolate one with chocolate butter cream...

DS1s 1st birthday cake was a sheep. Chocolate cake as above, cud 2 curves out of the side so you get a fat 8 shape - the cut out bits become the ears. Cover in chocolate fudge icing then roll fondant icing into worms, roll the worms up into loose balls and stick on for wool at the top of the head. 2 balls of fondant icing with minstrels/brown smarties pushed in for the eyes.

Looked fab! Did a chocolate fudge cake zebra the following years which was basically the same but with cut out white stripes instead of wool.
