Andrew's Birthday

It was my housemate Andrew's birthday this weekend so Rosie and I decided to make him a cake. Naturally we turned to the most amazing cake book of all time for inspiration, the Women's Weekly Children's Birthday Cake book. This book was THE book of my childhood - my mum made so many of the cakes for my brother and I from it and we used to spend the whole weekend just poring over the pictures and planning future birthdays, two, three, and four years in advance!

We decided on a swimming pool cake, and adapted the recipe to include a jam roll pool deck and Kit Kats instead of chocolate fingers (could NOT find them anywhere). My favourite bit is the menacing man-eating jelly fish!
