If you have a special birthday coming up in your family, don’t call the local bakery, just take a look at these extra-special recipes and decorating tips and try your own baking hand. How does a no-bake mango and ginger cheescecake sound? For the kiddos in your life read this blog about cupcakes for the guests and a special mini-cake for the birthday kid. Or try your hand at baking, cutting and decorating a child’s birthday cake using one of these patterns. My favorite is the volcano cake. Want to try something different perhaps for a special parent or grandparent?? How about a parsnip and maple syrup cake or a banofee marshmallow cake? You’ll find them and more at And finally Martha Stewart has some eye-poppingly beautiful and creative cake toppers––everything from paper parasols to mini-cupcakes set atop slices of layer cake. Enjoy!
