Spent a fun afternoon celebrating Sienna's 10th Birthday recently. Look at how lovely her Mother decorated the room for her party. Below is the the birthday cake I made for Sienna.
Below are all the colourful cakes the girls spent the afternoon making. Rainbows and flowers was the theme for the cake decorating activity. For their rainbows the girls rolled out each of their colours into long snakes. The colours were lined up and trimmed, and joined together by flattening the colours using a fondant smoother, and then rolling them. The girls were then able to lift up their fondant rainbows and place them where they wanted on their cakes.
I always ask the girls what they want to do, so after making their rainbows, I showed them how to add a simple boarder using coloured balls. Some of the girls did this and some came up with their own variations, such as flowers and hearts around the bottom.
After the boarders the girls were able to select which tools they wanted to use. There were letters to put their names on with. Hearts, stars, flowers, butterflies and leaves and a collection of other things.
I think it is nice for the children to have the opportunity to make their own creative choices, after all they are the ones making the cakes. I do bring a sample cake to each party for inspiration and will adjust what I show the girls according to what they want to do.
So each cake turned out a little different, but they are all bright and happy!
The girls were very proud of their cakes and so were their parents.
It was a lovely party to be apart of.
