Ingredients (serves 20)
2 quantities butter cake (see related recipe)
1 1/2 quantities butter cream icing (see related recipe)
Nestle Smarties, to decorate
Place the cakes on a clean work surface. Use a large serrated knife to trim 1 short side of each cake. Place cut sides together. Place the template (see notes) on top of the 2 cakes. Use a small sharp knife to cut out the number. Place a little icing on the bases of the cakes to secure to a cake board or serving platter.
Spread the icing over the sides and top of the cake to cover.
Separate the Smarties into four different colours and place in separate bowls. Use brown Smarties to create three rows around the sides of the cake. Use the three remaining colours to outline the number on top of the cake, overlapping slightly.
Get the number templates needed for this cake on the Good Taste January 2009 page. Print the number template you require to start.

Make it ahead: You can make this cake up to 1 day ahead. Sore in a cool, dry place. You'll need 8 x 410g packets of Smarties for this recipe. Place any leftover Smarties in bowls for the party or in lolly bags for the kids.
