From cake-maker extraordinaire Anna von Marburg comes Happy Birthday, a book of fabulously easy cakes for kids that would make them want every day of the year to be a birthday or special occasion! From a bumblebee cake called Bzzz to an unpotted sunflower cake, from Sandcastle and Fish Tank, to creations for the young ones in your life who are feeling kind of sporty, these spectacular cakes will have you wowwing kids of all ages. While amazing to look at, the cakes are quick to whip up, and make use of everyday ingredients such as lollipops, candy and ice-cream. Lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, and with detailed step-by-step instructions and helpful hints, Happy Birthday will make the next birthday cake you bake an inspiration...and a masterpiece! Anna von Marburg was born in the US but now lives in Australia with her husband and their three children. Anna is the author of the best-selling Cakes in Bloom, published in 1993 by Allen & Unwin.
  • This book is so much fun--a visual treat! I got it for my granddaughter to give her ideas for her cakes. She was thrilled with all the great ideas!!

  • To give you an idea of Von Marburg's style, the first offering in this book s called "Unpotted." It features a large cake plus cupcakes that are frosted and rolled in chocolate cake or cookie crumbs so that they resemble unpotted plants. The large cake uses a real sunflower with its stem wrapped -- pushed into the top -- and the cupcakes use mint sprigs inserted into their tops.
    Her "Bzzzzz" cake is a skep decorated with yellow and black licorice allsorts that resemble bees. She also places a spoonful of honey at the entrance to the to the hive.
    Her cupcake tree is simply decorated mini cupcakes inserted into a styrofoam cone.
    Her goal is to show you how to make cakes that are quick, convenient and stylish.

  • I bought this book hoping to find some good ideas for my daughter's first birthday cake. I also figured it would come in handy as she gets older. Unfortunately, while the cakes all look very pretty, they are not the sorts of cakes that a child, or possibly even a teen-ager, would find exciting. For the most part, they are very adult in their themes (with the notable exception of a cake designed to look like a diaper). The Penny Whistle Birthday Party Book has much better ideas for children's birthday cakes, albeit without color photographs. If you intend to use this book for adult parties, it might work for you. I think the title is misleading, however, in that many of the cakes tend more toward garden themes.

  • The layout and design of the book are great. Unfortunately, the cakes are really unattractive. There are only two that I would be even tempted to make. Stick with the Colette Peters books for great ideas -- the elements here are unappetizing, and as usual for this author, the execution is sloppy and unappealing.

  • even I could follow her easy instructions...i didn't even know what fondant was before this! ace of cakes- here i come!
