It’s the unsung hero of children’s birthday party prep and a culinary bible of sorts. The iconic Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book celebrates its 40th year this year so we asked our Mum Central mums to show us the cakes made from this iconic book and boy, did they deliver!
Nothing said birthday quite like presenting your mum with your choice of cakes from the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book. And expecting her to pull it off effortlessly. #memories #nopressure
To celebrate their 40th anniversary, a brand new Limited Edition version has hit the shelves this month – so grab a copy and continue serving up these delicious birthday celebrations!
You can find the AWW Children’s Birthday Cake Book 40th Anniversary Edition at Big W, priced $12!
