Butter Cake with Chocolate Icing

I prepared this cake to celebrate my son's first term holidays!!!I did'nt want to bake a chocolate cake, but at the same time my kids should love it too....I baked this Butter Cake and to make it appealing to the kids I decorated it with some ready-made chocolate icing and gems.

I had a tin of Pillsbury Chocolate Icing and some Cadbury Gemsin my shelf. So, used both to attract my kids and they loved it!!!
