Teddy Bears Picnic Party - Part 3, Cake and Favour

This week I've been sharing all the fun we served for Honey's first birthday party. Here are the links if you'd like to check out our Savoury and Sweet posts. I saved the best for last - CAKE!

I am so very pleased with how her party cake turned out! Two small round vanilla sponges for the head and body, a few lines of Nutella and some Maltesers to decorate. Muffins for the paws and ears and a couple of snake lollies for the antennae. I had to add a couple of choc drop bumble bees too, just because :-) You can see more detail about the them in the Sweet post.
I think the larger cake rounds made a real difference from our practice run which we used for her actual birthday. This one was made with muffin and mini-muffin size chocolate cakes, because it's not a birthday without Grandma's chocolate cake ;-)

Iced with chocolate icing and decorated with marshmallows, mini marshmallows and FooDoodler.

But I didn't let her have the whole cake - Honey got a muffin.

And because I haven't shared them before, these are the cakes I made for Miss M's first birthday and her party.

Store bought slab cake with icing and green coconut, decorated with tiny teddies and some goodies from my craft supply cupboard. Perfect for our party at the park, well away from home.

The large round cake was our family cake for her actual birthday. Muffins, marshmallows, smarties and chocolate covered snake for decoration.

Then she had a muffin decorated with mini muffins, smarties, and half a chocolate covered snake.

I also loved the little favour boxes we made up. These came yellow and white striped, but a little Nikko/Texta soon helped to bring them up to speed with our theme. Some googley eyes stuck on with mounting tape for a face and a Hershey's Kiss for a sting. Completed with some black and yellow ribbon for wings. Perfect for little hands.
Inside each box there were a few balloons, a party blow-out and a small bottle of bubbles. There's not much more one year olds wish for in life, is there?
Admittedly my bumble bee bubbles weren't quite as cute as their Pinspiration, found here, but I still think they turned out great.

And Miss M had a great time helping out too :-)
