Happy Birthday Cake!!

Over the past few weeks I have been making a new birthday cake. The difference with this cake is that its not edible! At Beth's school at the assembly on Friday they sing happy birthday to all the children who have had birthdays that week. The cake that they have been using has come to the end of its life, the candles were allowed to burn right down and they melted into the cake.
I have made a new one, not as easy as it seems as it has to be strong, light,fireproof,pretty and suitable for boys and girls.
I think I have finally cracked it. It is made out of an empty biscuit tin from Ikea, covered in papier mache, painted white, I made the swirls on the top with poly filler. The candle holes were drilled into the tin. Finished with a big bow !!
What do you think? Good enough to eat??
