As regular readers of Melbourne Gastronome will be aware, when I joined facebook last year I thought I'd start up a group dedicated to that childhood treasure, the Australian Women's Weekly Children's Birthday Cake Book. The facebook group "The Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book is awesome" started as a bit of a joke with a handful of my friends because CJ had made me the piano cake for my 27th birthday - but then more and more people I didn't even know started joining. As at today's date the group has 3106 members! You can read more about the group here.
The reason I'm writing about it again is to enlist your participation in our group poll to determine Australia's favourite cake from the original book. Which was your favourite cake? Was it the Choo-Choo Train, the Piano, the Swimming Pool, the Rubber Ducky with the salty chip beak? The group has plenty of photos to help jog your memory, and it's lots of fun reading over the voters' comments - who would have thought that birthday cakes could arouse such passion! :)
If this link doesn't work, simply log on to facebook and search for "Women's Weekly" - you'll find us. Entries close very soon - on ANZAC Day. Please vote and encourage friends to vote too!!
