Whenever I am stuck for something to do with the boys I fall back on those four old faithfuls; eggs, sugar, flour and butter. A batch of cupcakes makes all three of us happy, especially when it comes to the decorating part. Arguably the best bit.

Cake decorating with the kids‘ is a book full of decorating ideas for parents and kids to tackle together. It covers cakes, biscuits, cake pops… from a themed dessert table for teacher to a Jackson Pollack style celebration cake. I’ll definitely be making the bee biscuits and the teddy bear’s picnic cake out of the 30 ideas to choose from. Probably aimed at parents with kids aged 5 and upwards with some harder designs for teens. In fact, this is a great cake decorating book with those with or without kids and luckily I have 2 to give away. (I’m keeping my copy, sorry.)
