This book is terrific. It has wonderful cakes to make for
children's parties. I already had several basic cake
decorating books but this one had ideas that I had never seen before and which were easy but didn't look it. I made the under the sea cake for my daughters 6th birthday and it was a huge hit. It is my number one go to book when I am about to make a cake for a child's party. A definite must have for every family with children.

But it isn't as creative as I would like it to be. A lot of the cakes seem to be ways to decorate a regularly shaped cake or cupcakes with special candies, etc. I was really looking for a book with more ideas of ways to cut round and rectangle cakes to make 3-dimensional/more original cakes.

The instructions are good. Would also prefer if the pictures were more professional looking. I'm not a great decorator, but on some pages I think I could have done a better job than the decorator for the book.

Family Fun Magazine is awesome and here is sorta the best of the best of their ideas for the most creative and cool looking cakes that will make the supermarket pre-bought cakes look blah! Don't get me wrong, in a pinch or if you don't have the time, they are OK. These cakes are not that hard to make and will give your children the "wow, that's cool" and other parents and adults - " Who made this? Wow you made it, I gotta have the receipe for my.....!"

What is also nice is that some of the cakes have matching themed cupcakes, there are also ideas from other parents, and ideas for what you can also do themed wise for your party. Each cake has a very nice color photo, how you need to cut the cakes to make a certain shape,easy instructions.

There are cakes & cupcakes for both girls & boys from pre-school age to teen years. For boys there is a Dump Truck, a Bowling pin & ball, Volcano, and Pirate Ship cake. For girls - Pink Pony head, Garden cake with flower cupcakes, and for teens and adults the hawaiian Beach Cake, Pizza, Burger & Hot dog cake & cupcakes just to name a few. My God-daughter had her friends over for the night and they made the Sleepover cake. It was a huge hit, the girls had lots of fun making it, took lots of photos with the cake and enjoyed every bite!

You just can't go wrong with this or any other book by FamilyFun book or for monthly children's ideas subscribe to FamilyFun's monthly magazine! You'll love it and your children will also enjoy it!

I've had this book for years, and have referred to it many times. The horse head cake was one of my daughters' favorites, and I've made it for end of year school picnics, too. I've given away many cookbooks over the years, but this one has stayed. Easy, original cakes that anyone can make.

Everyone enjoys a birthday cake created just for them. Here's your chance to find the right cake. It will not be available in your local bakery with all the love you have put into making that special cake. Ummm, so good and it came from your kitchen.

This book is full of great ideas for kid birthdays. I am a novice cake decorator and these recipes made it very easy to create a homemade cake that looks great. My 3 year old loved the racetrack cake. I highly recommend this book for beginners like me.

I have wanted to purchase this book since I first saw the castle cake in Family Fun magazine. I especially like not having to purchase special cake pans, which take up alot of room. For my niece's 5th birthday I added a Ariel doll to the Aquarium Cake and voila! it was now an unofficial Undersea Little Mermaid cake.
