First published in 1980, The Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book has become an iconic tome helping parents create birthday cake magic across the land. Congratulations to Belinda for winning the Haven Summer edition competition, with her fabulous interpretation of the book’s fairy-topped toadstool.
Each year my brother and I picked out a birthday cake from The Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Book. Now 30 years later, we have carried on this family tradition with my two daughters picking out their own birthday cakes. Here is the magic toadstool cake I made for my daughter’s sixth birthday last year.
