Spectacular cheats birthday cake


This is the ultimate cheats birthday cake.  Look how luscious it looks!  This is the cake to make when you want something home made but don’t have the time to start from scratch!.  I used bought sponge layers, but made the fillings and topping the star and lets be honest, how many kids just eat the icing and leave the cake behind.   The fillings and topping require little more than whipping, melting, mashing and spreading. Give this one a go for your next birthday cake.
