I was disappointed and surprised to see that this book recommends using cake mix! Admittedly there is one page of cake recipes tucked away at the back, but as the cover says 'a collection of new and favourite recipes', I expected more than seven cake recipes in all!
There are suggestions for many forms of decoration - the main focus of the book. Again, I was disappointed. Some of the ideas are OK, but most are very dated, very amateur-looking and make use of bought decoration! On the pages where you are told you can make decorations as well as buy them, instructions for making them are not included, for example, page 102 features penguins - 'Buy small plastic toy penguins or make your own by moulding coloured ready-made white icing.' This is not helpful if you have never done it before. The reliance on heavy-handed use of butter cream is offputting and overall I do not feel this book is good value.
On the plus side, very young children will probably love the cakes, and templates are included to assist with cutting the cakes to shape.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have unfortunately started a trend in our house where I cook my daughters'
birthday cakes. I have to say my daughters and guests have welcomed my
attempts alike, but I do find the whole episode rather stressful because I'm
really a novice at cooking cakes. "I'd like a fairground cake" and "I'd like a pig
-shaped cake"; sometimes wish I'd never started making request cakes!

I usually resort to Google images for ideas, and basic cookbooks for cake-mix
recipes and I have always made the whole lot including decorations myself.

When I saw this book I initially thought it might solve all of my problems in one
go. There are lots of ideas with a double page spread with a good photograph
and simple instructions. At the back of the book there are paper templates and
the usual glossary, equipment guide, and a general step by step guide.

I think this book is aimed at those who may want to make the cake with their
children, or who have little experience or time. I'm not keen on the fact that
every recipe is based on multiple packets of cake mix and quite often use
purchased decorations.

It does state that the reason for ready-made cake mix is time and consistent
baking times (and space in the book); there are seven cake-mix recipes in the
back of the book.

Some of the cakes look a little dated (but that says more about my age) although
I have to say both of my daughters (three and six) really enjoyed looking at the
cakes and I expect I'll use the book as a visual ideas resource (along with Google),
rather than a cookbook.

Still worth a look though.

The Bumper Book of Kids Birthday Cakes

Great brightly coloured pictures with easy to follow instructions and good cut out pattern stencils included in the back of the book, make the cakes fairly easy to make. Some amazing ideas which can also be used to adapt to your own designs. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the book and the fact that all the pages including the front cover can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Ignore the fact that the book was made in Australia, the country of origin is irrelevant. If you make cakes for kids, need cake stencils or just want ideas, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

6 out of 5 stars !!!!

This comes from the Australian Women's Weekly stable which means reliability. This is a terrific book if you bake for children or grandchildren with a huge variety of celebration cakes to choose from. There are even patterns for the various shapes which is a real boon for people like me who cannot draw. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and the book is colourfully illustrated.

It's not quite perfect. Some of the recipes make use of cake mixes with recipes at the end of the book which can be substituted. There is a problem with this as no baking temperature is given and we are told both follow the mix's instructions - an issue if you never use cake mixes. I had to guess the baking temperature and luckily it worked out OK. The oven temperatures are only given in centigrade and Fahrenheit so you need a conversion table if you use gas. Although most weights are given in imperial and metric, the cup measurements are metric, so it helps to have a metric scale/weights. The cake decorations also include a lot of sweets, often of more than one variety. I think sometimes icing can be used to produce the same effect which will prevent having a lot of smarties, jellybeans or whatever left over. But the ideas and designs are terrific and the methods of achieving them can be adapted.

On the whole, a book worth having.

Some of their sweets are not our sweets of course (jubes, hersey kisses, oompas, fruit sticks, nerd ropes, rainbow sour straps, musk lollies, pink fizzers, mint leaves, swirl pops for starters) but I investigated and found that on line sweetie stores offer everything under the (Australian) sun either in reality or in comparables. Much use is made of more familiar Smarties, marshmallows, toblerone, liquorice, skittles, popcorn, M & Ms, flying saucers, jelly beans, gob stoppers, red strawberry sour string, liquorice all sorts, jelly snakes, tic tacs, and so on. The glossary of sweets (`lollies' in Australia) at the back is mind blowingly tempting. Breezily they add, "If you can't find any of the lollies we used in this book, use something similar - the results will be just as good". I am sure they will be.

The Australian Women's Weekly suggest using a proprietary cake mix for the cake bases, which I daresay can be purchased in a supermarket, but handily at the back they give us basic cake and icing recipes as well that are easy to follow and have recognisable and easily understandable measurements. The step-by-step instructions are clear enough for a bright child from three upwards to follow with help over the hot ovenish parts. Explanations are useful and sensible; this is a complete celebration cake cookery course book.

Wonderfully every single delightful recipe has a handy hint/tip bubble that points the way to easier construction. Everything looks so jolly and bright; the presentation is immediately appealing and would be a great resource for grandparent, parent, carer/child cooperation and pleasure.
