This was the first (of many) cake books that I purchased when I became a Mum and wanted to make birthday cakes for my children. And it is well worn.

You cannot go wrong with this book as it is a classic and will never date.If you are a novice baker then you simply can't fail with this book as it is very simple to follow and and edible cake almost guaranteed. I still use their butter cake recipe when a vanilla cake is called for as it is a universal hit and even better in cupcakes as its so moist. No need to deviate from a tried and tested favourite and I have tried many others but always go back to AWW's recipe.

I'd say almost every Australian household has a copy of this book in some version and it's made many a happy birthday memory for a lot of children.

Everyone around my age (20 - 30) seem to know this book from our childhood. For me, it was a truck. For my sister, a train (which was made once more for her 18th). For my partner it was a jelly-filled swimming pool. The fact that such a book is so widely known is tantamount to its longevity and success in creating the best home made cakes ever.

The cakes featured in this book (with the hard-to-beat delicious butter frosting) are the closest thing you'll get to a memorable children's cake.
