Birthday cake

It was my birthday last week and I insisted that I do not want a cake from the shop because my almost 5-year-old daughter had problems with her teeth recently and we are trying to avoid sugar as much as we can.
So I made this cake on my birthday with as little as possible sugar.

Cake recipe is Dan Lepard's birthday cake recipe from BBC, here is the link. I used soft brown sugar in the cake and added blueberries to the cake batter.

I topped the cake with creme fraiche and then raspberries and blueberries and a little dusting of icing sugar.

It is my daughter's birthday in couple of weeks and I have a difficult task of making a mermaid cake for her with little sugar in it.
