A few months ago I bought a recipe book. Not just any recipe book, mind you, but one filled with nostalgia, that didn’t have a place on my bookshelf as a kid, but rather on the bookshelf of my aunt. The Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book. From numbers to barbie cakes to sweet shops and typewriters, this was one of two books my cousins and I obsessively viewed every time a birthday came around, deciding which cake we wanted to take centre stage at our birthday parties.
With some chocolate buttercream icing and a knife to cut a hole for the jelly, I proceeded to create a masterpiece.
