A step-by-step guide to making fun professional-looking children's party cakes that have a distinctly Kiwi theme. How about an erupting volcano cake, a fairytale castle made of lamingtons, a cake made in a flower pot, or a summer jandal cake? The authors have made sure the 25 cake projects are well within the average home cook's reach. An extensive introduction includes: basic cake and icing recipes; details about materials needed; and the basic techniques involved with making the cakes, colouring icing and rolling it into the required shapes. Each project includes 'how to' photography, clearly explained in numbered steps. Each cake carries a 'level of difficulty' rating, and handy headings indicate what can be made days in advance.
