A few months ago my brother and I went to watch a comedy show called Josh Earl vs The Australian Women's Weekly Birthday Cake book. It was hilarious, Josh Earl pointed out some pretty humorous things about the book that I hadn't even noticed before, probably because I was a child and only cared about marshmallows and rabbit shaped cakes.
Like, how the picture of the guitar cake pre cutting and icing looks like someone giving you the finger!
And what the heck is with this cake? Chips for lips and popcorn for hair. This is one of the worst looking cakes, did anyone ever get this cake for their birthday??
I only have a photos of a few of the cakes from the book that my Mum made us kids, I know there were many, many more. Mine was the swimming pool cake, don't ask me why the water was supposed to be green. I am debating whether I am going to try my hand at making one of these cakes for Ezra's 1st Birthday, or if I'll cop out and get one made.
Does this book bring back a flood of good memories for you too? Or maybe some not so good memories? What cake did you get from the book? Or which one did you really want, but was maybe a little difficult for your Mum (or Dad) to make?
