To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the cakebook every Australian family had on the shelf in the 1980s. When you asked a kid what cake they were having for their birthday, they would just name a cake from this book. It comes from an era that predated the fondant/rolled icing perfection that seems so standard now. These cakes are creative artworks: rustic and querky. Decorations are made mostly with lollies and biscuits, so each slice is a taste adventure. This book is gold, and I am thrilled to have my new copy.
For baking a child's birthday cake, this is the perfect how to do it book. It shows you how to cut the baked cakes into shapes, and how to frost. Piano? Lion? swimming pool? It's all here. My daughter and I loved looking at the book and planning her party. Australian measures are used but they are easily converted.
I used this book for all three of my children . They would page through it every birthday and choose their cake. They would sit on the kitchen counter and help decorate the cake. They remember the book so well and were thrilled to get one for their own children
