As I was sitting here this morning, I really had no idea what I was going to write – or rather, I have a lot of ideas of what I want to write, but actually sitting down and getting them on paper is a bit harder. So I was scrolling through my facebook feed (which always seems to be great inspiration for topics) and came across one celebrating the 35th birthday of the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book.
Growing up in Australia, I remember my mom having a copy of this and every year as our birthday’s got closer and closer, we would start going through the book, trying to figure out what cake we wanted that year…That being said, the liklihood of getting the cake varying depending on mom and dad’s schedules for a given year. And I will admit that my favorite childhood cake, didn’t even come from that book, but was rather one with She-Ra on it (any kids fro mthe 80’s remember her) that my dad made for my 8th (I think) birthday…meaning, I remember the cake, but not what year it was made – lol.
There are some awesome cakes in the book and looking through the list of top 13 that kids wanted, I totally agree with all of them. And yes, the castle was the one I always wanted, but I have a feeling if I tried to make it, it would end up looking not so castle-ish…lol. There is some debate about the train (which is featured on the cover) and should it be the most popular – but I totally stand by the castle (and then second for me would have been the piano – that came in at number 9 on the list).
What say you guys – of the ones in the link – which is your favorite?
