Birthday cakes generally come in two varieties: the basic, straight-from-the-box version, and the labor-intensive, time-consuming specialty cake. Happy Birthday offers an alternative: birthday cakes that are fabulously creative and fun as well as incredibly easy to make. Cake designs for potted sunflowers, football fields, aquariums, and teapots involve recipes that make use of kid-friendly ingredients such as lollipops, candy, and ice cream. Step-by-step instructions and tips for making perfect creations the first time around are included. Designed for times when style is important but convenience is paramount, each cake can be baked and decorated within a few hours.

Could not be more appropiate for the ocassion. the ideas are great and easy to follow. Great addition for my collection.
I made two of these cakes - the cover's 'ice cream cone cake' and the 'diaper cake' - for my son's first birthday. The directions were easy to follow and the results were spectacular. I even made individual diaper cakes as favors - adapting the instructions was a snap. Making the small cakes was actually good practice for working with fondant - this was my first attempt. You may have a difficult time finding the 'torch cones' for the ice cream cake, so don't start looking two days before you need them - a food distributor may be your best bet.
