Kids Birthday Cake book

July 6, 2012

I think it’s safe to say most kids in New Zealand grew up with a copy of the Australian Woman’s Weekly Kids Birthday Cakes recipe book.  My sister and I would read it over and over deciding on what cake we would have at our next birthday party, and now my kids love reading it.  My friend told me recently that her kids take it to bed to read!

Kees chose the pirate cake for his birthday.  It was super easy to make although I had an icing disaster when I emptied a whole bottle of black food colouring into the mix!!!  The kids ended up with black mouths and tongues which kind of added to the pirate theme I guess!

You can buy it on Amazon.

Haha, I bet the kids loved their black tongues! I’m so impressed by your cake… And… was it really that easy to make? It looks kind of complex! x

Seriously Esther it was super easy!! Everyone loves the book because all the cakes look impressive but are easy to make. I made one big round cake then just cut it up and stacked it then cut out the boat shape and iced it with my toxic icing! I will have to post the cake recipe because its so simple and tastes amazing!
