Book Cakes: Baking up Some Family Fun

Summer is here and it’s time to start having a good time! So, sit yourselves down and take a browse at these fun sites:

Now, as a family, select a book that all of you are familiar with and have enjoyed, and plan to bake your own book-themed cake.

  • Choose what flavor cake you want to make
  • Decide how you want to decorate your cake. Get creative; there are lots of options: frosting, candy, cookies, fruit, edible flower petals, toys, dolls–whatever else your imagination can dream up.
  • Go shopping together to buy whatever ingredients you don’t have around the house.

Have fun creating a cake together.

When you’re done, why not pick out a book to enjoy as a family read-aloud. Slice everyone some cake and begin to read the book together. Just be sure to take turns reading so everyone gets a chance to enjoy eating your scrumptious cake.

And please, take a picture and post it here! I’d love to see, even if I can’t taste, your wonderful creations.

  1. Thanks for the great idea. My boys and I made lady bug cupcakes and read The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. We had a blast! Here is a link to a picture of the cupcakes:
