Allow the cakes to cool, and then thinly slice off the top of each one.
Slice the tops in half so that they look like wings.
Whip the cream until thick, and then spoon a dollop onto the top of each cake.
Stick the 'wings' on either side of the cake.
Add a cherry in the centre and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
