What says happy birthday more than a birthday sprinkles cake

Say Happy Birthday with this birthday sprinkles cake, courtesy of Stork recipes.  I remember my mother adding sprinkles to the top of the family trifle at Christmas, who’d had thought that a few years down the line, I’d be adding them to a birthday cake ;-)
