April Birthday Cake / Bursdagskake for April

Every little child should have the joy of a real birthday cake of his or her own, and every grown-up child should have the opportunity to renew his youth at least once a year with a special celebration on his own personal anniversary. These cakes will delight any child-big or little-and can be varied indefinitely to suit the occasion. They are as wholesome and nourishing as food, even for children, as they are effective from a decorative standpoint.
