Whether you are going to be 1 or 100 years old Fiona Cairns has the perfect birthday cake for you – all not only amazing to behold but also absolutely delicious to eat.
Fiona is a veteran at catering for every style and taste, and amongst the 50 cakes featured in this book there are masses of tempting choices as well as six themed birthday parties, each with a large cake, cupcakes, and biscuits.
Starting with kids, any child will remember their birthday party when it has been embellished with tiny fairies sitting on top of tasty lemon fairy cakes; or a Dinosaur Party complete with Volcano Cake, Dinosaur Biscuits and Bones Cupcakes.
A spherical Disco Glitter Ball Cake is a wonderful gift for the party girl in your life, while a realistic Vegetable Plot – complete with hidden courgettes and carrots in the cake beneath – is the very thing for your favourite gardener. And don’t worry if that recipe isn’t right for the birthday boy or girl; most of the decorated cakes in the book have alternative suggestions and recipes for making a deliciously simple iced cake like a Masala Chai Cake with Ginger Fudge Frosting. Even those who lack a sweet tooth are remembered, with a Savoury ‘Cake’ of home-made soda bread and smoked salmon, ‘iced’ with cream cheese to look like the real thing. Those with allergies are catered to as well: there is a choice of recipes that are flour-free, and some even free from all common allergens.
Fiona’s warm writing style and easy-to-follow instructions means making beautiful, surprising and divine-tasting birthday cakes is something everybody can achieve, no matter how inexperienced, and enjoy the process. So bring a special gift to the party, and get baking!
