We had a beautiful party for Lilly on her Birthday this Anzac Day.
This is the gorgeous cake we made together. Yep, front cover of one of the Women's Weekly Cake books, I love it every time I get that book off the shelf.
I could not get plain green wrapping paper with hours to spare so settled for this colourful spotty stuff, I am too fussy. Lilly designed the tulip flowers on the fairy house with delicious sugared almonds in pastel colours and mini musk lollies. I esp love the marshmallow toadstalls, they are so simple yet so cute. This year I used packet cake mixes and I think I will be doing this again, too easy and they really are quite nice and hold together well for this sort of thing.
It took a bit of smashing! But everyone got a go and then scrambled for the toys and lollies!
For something that costs roughly $5 if that, plus the filling which you would buy anyway with a store bought pinata - it is such a good idea to make your own. For a crafty family we had a great time creating it and it ended up looking pretty cool and more intriguing to smash and bash since it wasn't your average 'character themed' pinata!
For an extra special surprise treat, we booked a balloon twisting clown who did magic!
This is the Lady Beetle she made for my wrist- so cute.
...and she turned this lot of balloons into...
...this so cute monkey up a tree!
She was very talented and kept the kids entertained for 2 hours with her magic show, tricks, magic cake cooking, juggling and balloon twisting. The jokes were pretty good too, I had sore cheeks from laughing and smiling for 2 hours! Thanks Miss Donna!
Happy Birthday beautiful Lilly xxx
