Prior to having my kids, I hadn't baked a cake in at least 15 years. I don't have a creative baking bone in my body. All I could manage for my oldest's first birthday was a basic cake with store bought frosting. I remembered all the awesome, fun cakes my mom made for us when we were growing up and wanted to do something more for my kids. A sheet cake with store-bought action figures stuck on the top seemed too generic and not very fun. So, I browsed through Amazon and found this book. It was exactly what I needed. It has 24 ideas cakes that anyone can make. It also has very tasty, (and very easy) frosting recipes. There is a good split between "girl" and "boy" themes as well as generic cakes you can use for either sex. She uses basic pans that everyone will have in their kitchen and gives an easy-to-decipher template for each cake. She also gives ideas for variation so you won't feel like you're making the same cake over and over.
The very first cake I baked was for my oldest's second birthday. It was the clown fish and to my tremendous surprise, it looked awesome, just like the picture in the book. Several of the moms at the party who knew me well, and know my lack of baking history, were convinced that I bought the cake somewhere. Another mom wanted to pay me to make a cake for her son's party. Instead, I loaned her the book. She also had tremendous success. My success bred confidence and I've since made several other cakes from the book and have started to add my own creativity instead of sticking to exactly what she says.
I highly recommend this book.Read more ›

Many of the cake ideas from this book are taken from another book: Baker's Easy Cut-Up Party Cakes. If you only want one book, buy Baker's instead.Published on November 23, 2013 by Anonymous
