I was making a birthday cake for my son and was lost for ideas. He recently started playing DJ Hero so thought I would try making a cake themed on the game.

I made a basic sponge recipe. When cooled I put jam and vanilla butter icing in the middle. I coated the top with normal icing sugar and covered the sides of the cake with left over butter icing.

When the icing had set on top of the cake, I drew the design on with writing icing pens and which I then used to do the block color. I’m pleased with the outcome as it turned out a lot better than I thought.
