My Little Pony Cake | Rainbow Dash Cake | Girls 5th Birthday Cake | My Little Pony Party

My youngest daughter just turned the BIG 5!!!! She is so in love with My Little Pony especially Rainbow Dash!
Not only was this her 5th birthday it was her first birthday that she got to invite her school friends! She was so excited to celebrate her birthday with all her favorite people.

My challenge was to pull off a fun party for 5 year olds, one with a peanut allergy and not break the bank!!

First thing I figured out were the games! The kids really loved both games but the balloon pop game was the favorite! We put little erasers, Jolly Ranchers, My Little Pony Tattoos and some peanut free hard candies into the balloons and blew them up. We pinned them on a cork board and each child got to pop two balloons. If you do this let the balloons sit out in the sun for 20 mins or so before you start popping them...it makes them WAY easier to pop. We used a magic wand with a tac hot glued to the end to pop the balloons.
 Pin the tail on Rainbow Dash. I printed a large picture of Rainbow Dash and taped it all together and got my Daughter to colour it in. I bought curly ribbons that you put on presents and taped them onto magnets!
We had a house full of people and it was sunny out, a little chilly but sunny so we had the party mostly outside!

I used mason jars and filled them with water and used food gels to dye the water into different colors. I bought some white daisies and VoilĂ  simple center pieces. I also hit up the Bulk Bran and bought some rainbow candies and rainbow twizzlers which are peanut free!!
I also made Pony ears and unicorn horn headbands for all the kids to wear at the party.

 Rainbow fruit tray!!

Rainbow Cupcakes - Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream with rainbow sugar licorice.

Here is he beautiful birthday girl in her custom made Rainbow Dash outfit with the ears and horn we made. Little Birds Tutus & Boutique, which is my other little side business, made the tutu set

This is the cake that I made for the family party we had later in the evening. The 8" cake is a chocolate chip cake with vanilla buttercream filling. The rainbow balls around the outside are gum balls, the rainbow on top is fondant and the pony on top is one of Olivia's figurines.


Construction 2nd Birthday Cake

This cake was so much fun to make!! The birthday boy LOVES anything to do with construction so what better way than to celebrate with a Construction Cake!!

8" cake is chocolate with cookies and cream filling.  The construction hat on top is made from rice kripy treats covered in fondant with a fondant 2. The pylons are made from fondant and the 'rocks' are chocolate rocks.

All the construction equipment: dump trucks and digger are all hand cut from fondant.

Happy 2nd Birthday Carter!!!!

Lego Cake with Ninja Lego cucpakes!!

I have two girls and they are very girly girls...so when it comes to boy stuff I am kind of at a loss :/ BUT I have my wonderful nephew to help pull a little bit of boy into my life!

For his 7th birthday he wanted a Lego cake...and ninja's....low and behold there are Lego ninja's!

So the birthday boy got 12 Ninja Lego cupcakes for his kids party and a Lego Ninja cake for his family party.

8" cake was vanilla with cookies and cream filling. It is covered in fondant with all fondant decorations. Lego Ninja figurine is hand sculpted from fondant.

Cupcakes are vanilla with vanilla icing with fondant decorations
