Ok pink icing sounds good, why dont you make a red jelly, let it set then chop it up. Put the iced cake on a large plate and spoon the jelly around the cake. Or you could do a green jelly and put little animals sitting in the jelly. Or blue jelly and put little plasic fish on the jelly. I am sorry but I don't have kids so I have never made a childs cake. good luck

Butter icing! ! !

yes butter icing with red food colouring in it. You will want it pretty thick to cover up the dark cake. What about putting those silver balls around the edge of it once iced (I think they still make them).
