My Little Pony Party

So, as I mentioned before, my baby is now 4. She decided on a "My Little Pony" themed party, so I got to work. The decorations were all homemade and most with my wonderful Silhouette Machine. Here are the pictures.

First, let me just say that my husband is constantly giving me a hard time about the mess I make when I'm baking. He claims that I have a seizure of some kind and get flour, sugar, milk, eggs and everything everywhere. I don't know what he's talking about.
Moving on!
I tried my first tiered cake. For my first try, it turned out pretty good! I made some rookie mistakes but I know how to fix them now and the next one will be even easier.

Each kid got one of these boxes. They had chocolate covered pretzels, a couple of little candies and a package of My Little Pony fruit snacks.

I also made a bunting banner. I have wanted to make one for so long and I finally had an excuse. (The husband refused to move so I could take a decent picture of it. He said something like, "What? Am I not pretty enough to be on your blog?")
Here's a close up of it

Also, I made a ton of the tissue paper pom poms. Yeah, 25 to be exact. I got all my tissue from the Dollar Store, which made it cheap! I'm keeping them so I can hang some in Zoe's room later.

And here we are singing to Zoe. The reason I'm showing you this is because I wanted to show you what I was wearing. Cute right? Well, I forgot I was wearing my apron until the party was almost over. Guess that's what I get for not sleeping for 3 days prior to the party. Oh, and I cut all my hair off. It's wonderful!

Well there you have it. Happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. That cake looks GREAT! It give me hope that foundant and I could get along. And cuuuute bunting! Well done friend!

  2. I love all of it! I laughed when I read about the mess in your kitchen... I recently made a rubber ducky birthday cake and the kitchen looked the same. Great minds think alike - I decorated with tissue paper pom poms too! I find they're addictive to make, but I didn't make anywhere near 25 of them! What a great My Little Pony Party!

  3. What a pretty party you put on! I love the colors you used. I think your cake turned out great. My friend showed me how to make a marshmallow fondant and it was not a bad experience, I have just got to practice more.
    Found you on Tater Tots and Jello!

  4. You did great. What a cool party!

  5. What a fabulous birthday party. you did a great job on her cake! I love it. Ambree totally loves the "new" my little ponies, well, then again so does Rev!

  6. You did a wonderful job on that cake!

  7. My daughter is having a my little pony party this year for her 4th birthday as well. I love your cake. Does each tier have a 2 layer cake?
