Smartie Birthday Cake with Bunting

This Smartie birthday cake is possibly the easiest ‘cheat’ homemade birthday cake you can make.  Make it even quicker and easier by buying a basic cake to decorate. Add on some homemade bunting to give it a little extra wow factor.  This was made for my son’s 5th birthday party which had a circus theme.

How to decorate the Smartie birthday cake:
