Last week I told you about Miss M asking for a My Little Pony party for her birthday this year. (You can see the Rainbow Dash Rainbow Cakes I sent to Kindy in this previous post) I use the term 'party' loosely as it was Miss M & her two best friends, but to a four year old that's the world!
I of course over catered, but here's the snack-come-lunch platter I arranged for the girls along with Miss M's requested Pinkie Pie cake (because Pinkie's the best at parties)
|For Twilight Sparkle we had vegemite sandwiches cut with a star cookie cutter & decorated with gel writing icing.|
|More spray colour for some Rarity unicorn horns - aka mini ice cream cones. I was tempted to fill these with something delicious but in the end just left them hollow. No complaints from our little party goers.|
|Rainbow Dash was represented with some rainbow jelly. I'm kind of chuffed with the way these turned out and we re-made them a week later for a Kindy gathering. Very happy with these! For the shot glass size it's 1 teaspoon per colour with the red & orange maybe 1.5tsp.|
I saw these super cool cupcake wrappers (like 20% cooler) and made my own version for serving (pictured in the collage above)
There was a bit of jelly mix leftover so. . .
|We made some big ones too. The good thing about this size, using a tablespoon measure for each colour is that there's room for an ice cream 'cloud' on top ;-P|
|Each character had their own spot in the Tupperware serving tray.|
|I used the same edible image sheets I did with my Fluttershy Fail cake which I shared in this previous post.|
|I think I did a better job at peeling the image off the backing this time around, but as you can see, it still didn't work perfectly. This is the image I traced. Thank you again to Kath's Kakes for her mentoring through this project :-)|
|The fairy floss I'd bought wasn't anywhere near as pink as the packet suggested it would be - poor Pinkie looks like she's turning grey! I also used some of the spray colour on a mini ice cream cone for the party hat.|
|For games we made our own manes & tails using coloured wool tied around head bands and claw-grip hair clips. I printed some My Little Pony images onto tattoo paper & we each got a few. There were bubbles, balloons, party poppers and streamers as well as hopscotch and dolls and other general play-date games, but I think the most popular was when we coloured in some horns, wings and tails & played 'pin the tail/wing/horn on the alicorn'. I found this great post on Doodlecraft with everything we needed for the hands on part of the game. Then I thought it would be fun to have a Derpy mask (image source) as the blind fold. I simply printed & sticky taped it to a head band. Happy days!|
