Look no further that Annie Rigg when it comes to children’s birthday cakes. Annie is an experienced food writer and stylist and has written over 15 books and styled hundreds more. One we especially love here ta Junior is Birthday Cakes For Kids (Ryland, Peters & Small).
We have featured the Pixie Toadstool, the Wise Owl and the Flowering Garden cakes but there is so many to chose from like a Fluffy Sheep covered in marshmallows to a Pirate’s Treasure Chest, and a Ladybird to a Hot Air Balloon Annie really has produced some fun and crowd-pleasing cakes for even the pickiest of birthday girls and boys.
Creating these cakes really are easy you just need to make this basic sponge recipe (using the size indicated in each recipe, and in your child’s favourite flavour), then ice with a scrummy Buttercream, Chocolate Fudge Frosting or Glacé Icing t creat a whole wonder of beautiful birthday cakes.
