  • 50 Novelty Party Cakes for Children

    Sue Maggs

    Product Code: AIDXP
    Hardback
    Nothing pleases children more than to be given a custom-made cake made that reflects their personality, interests, or even characters that appear in books or TV shows. There are so many special events that deserve a celebration, and themed novelty cakes make a great focal point for a birthday or other occasion.

    Because the cakes in this book start with either a simple round or square cake, they do not take long to make, and they can be made ahead of time, covered in fondant, and stored until they are needed. There is a design to suit every child: little girls will love the doll's house, magic rabbit and sugar mice, while for a boy's party, the army tank, fire engine, dart board and pirate's hat would be ideal.

    Adults will find the cakes fun to make, and even beginners will be able to make accomplished-looking cakes. Whatever the event, you will find a cake to suit the occasion, and make every child's party a success.
