Kids Birthday Cake (Aqua Animals)

One of the easiest and healthiest kids birthday cakes ever! My son loves it, and I gotta admit, I don’t just make it for his birthday, because I love it too 😉
Basically it’s a soda cake bottom topped with some sugar free jam and a nice vanilla pudding frosting.
I guess the only “unhealthy” part about this cake is the little amount of whipped cream in the frosting, but we saved so much on the other cake parts, that we can afford using real heavy cream for that :)
The cake is still low fat and low sugar (don’t worry about using barely sugar, it gets sweetened enough by the jam.
Since my son loves water and surfing, I made him a “surfing animal” cake. You can also let the animals stand on grass and just use green food coloring instead of the blue one.
