Birthday Cake for Football Fan

My daughter helps to sieve the sugar – still in PJs
This week my son reached the grand old age of 6 years old. For the past few weeks he has been avidly following the World Cup so I decided to make a football themed cake. He is Scottish/German so has obviously been supporting Germany (as Scotland did not qualify, no surprise there). Thankfully Germany stayed in the tournament long enough for us to celebrate his birthday. I would have felt a bit daft making a German Flag cake now.
My lovely friend at Kitschnbake provided a recipe for Vanilla Yoghurt Cake that is good for birthday cakes. It is a bit firmer than a normal sponge cake and easier to ice. Not to mention simply delicious. As ever, finding some ingredients was a bit challenging here in Switzerland, I will definitely be stocking up when we get to Scotland later in the summer.
