Cooking for Children 2: Birthday Party Food
I remember the parties of my childhood. Presents, dresses, running around screaming with my friends (too much excitement or red cordial?). I also remember the hours spent beforehand, carefully looking through the Women's Weekly Birthday Cakes cookbook wondering whether the doll with the icing skirt was better than the sugar popcorn train? I never understood how anyone could go for that swimming pool cake (filled with green jelly). But I heard editor Pamela Clark on the radio the other day and she insists that it remains one of their most popular cakes. Hmmmn.
For my own darling Plumbaby's birthday, I'm trying to think of food that's fun and fresh. So please help out with Cooking for Children 2: Birthday Party Food and send me any ideas for this year's festivities. Cakes, savoury snacks, sweet treats - you name it.
