Birthday Cakes from the "Australia Women's Weekly" book have been a feature of family birthdays for about 3 decades now, and my daughter's are using them for THEIR children's birthdays. There have been some spectacular fails, and some spectacular successes too. My children loved choosing their cake, which their Mum would make with every effort to mimic the one in the book. The recipes are easy, and the instructions are clear. Measurements are metric, of course, but are easy enough to adapt if you need to.

Cookbook is missing a few pages, and there are a number of children's scribbles on the page... although this is to be expected when buying 2nd hand goods.
I love this book as it's not too hard to recreate the pictures
My mother made a number of these cakes from this cookbook for my birthdays growing up- Now It's My Turn!!! :)
I'd recommend this book to anyone whose mastered the basic birthday cakes and want to try something a little more intricate

This is the cakebook every Australian family had on the shelf in the 1980s. When you asked a kid what cake they were having for their birthday, they would just name a cake from this book. It comes from an era that predated the fondant/rolled icing perfection that seems so standard now. These cakes are creative artworks: rustic and querky. Decorations are made mostly with lollies and biscuits, so each slice is a taste adventure. This book is gold, and I am thrilled to have my new copy.

Oh my God, I remember this book from when I was little. My sister and I, both born in January, used to borrow it from my Aunty and spend hours poring over it discussing what cakes we could have. We were only allowed these cakes on "special" birthdays which, hmmmm, were only 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10. Not sure what that big gap in the middle was about, clearly we were deprived children. Anyway, this was THE book. And it still is in so many ways. My two year old took off with it as soon as it arrived and spent what seemed like hours (but was probably only a blissful 20 minutes) flicking through it. He quickly grasped that he could choose something for his third birthday and eventually decided on the rocket cake (balanced precariously on cardboard fins, great). It was delightful to see the magic transferring down a generation, which is why I give it such a high rating. It is now a bit dated though... I had forgotten that it's divided into "For Boys" and "For Girls" sections. Rather hilariously, the "For Girls" section contains a sewing machine cake, a sewing basket cake, a dressing table cake and, just when you think it couldn't get any worse, a stove cake(!). That aside, it's much more creative and exciting than the more modern edition and it also contains a lot of ideas to kick start your own creativity.

I had this book as a child too - my mother made the piano cake, the baby doll cake and many more which I remember vividly. Now I have two little boys and they love looking through the book to choose their own birthday cakes. So far we have made number cakes, dump trucks, barns and ducks together - not always quite from the book, but using it as inspiration. The kids love it and it's great fun. Highly recommended!

This was an absolute favourite with the kids in my family when we were growing up. Getting to choose what cake you were going to have was a favourite family tradition. You should REALLY get this book for your kids.

I used this book for all three of my children . They would page through it every birthday and choose their cake. They would sit on the kitchen counter and help decorate the cake. They remember the book so well and were thrilled to get one for their own children
