Pink Cake!

My mom did it again and made an amazing cake. We whipped out our well read Pinkalicious book and made the Giant cupcake look just like the ones Pinkalcious overate. I snagged a Pinkalicious figurine at BK earlier this year when they had them in their kid's meals.
The cake was strawberry with a buttercream icing in varying shades of pink and since your dying to know the cherry is the world's largest cake ball, no one ate it by the way.

And in case you don't like strawberry cake there were chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with Pinkalicous picks, they said "Think Pink" and had various pics from the book.

Here is the birthday girl getting ready to blow our her candles! I really just can't believe there are six of them!

She'll huff and she'll puff and blow those candles out!

Happy Birthday baby I hope you had as much fun at your party as I did planning it, I love you bunches and bunches and can't wait to see what we come up with next year!

Now onto Pirates in December for the only 3 year old girl I know that loves Pirates!

Pink Clothes and Pink Guests!

You could never have a Pinkalicious Party without some pink clothes, lots of them!

I made 3 freezer paper tees and 2 giant pink tutus. Using the Cricut and some free hand painting the girls rocked it out in their Pinkalicious cupcake tees and the awesome thing is they can wear them again!

I didnt want to wear a giant cupcake tee so my is a little more sedated, it is Peace Love Cupcakes. This is in the mirror so it is flipped but you get the gist of it.

Here are some of the pink ensembles that are very girly guests decided to wear, I was so excited to see them all in pink they were all too too cute!

I just love this shot of Miss Lydia, she is just darling if I do say so myself!

This pic cracks me up, 3 little 6 year olds gossiping I am sure!

Group shot of all the pink divas that attended! We did have some little boys and they wore green put didnt want to pose for us!

Pinkalcious Food!

I spent a lot of time thinking about pink food for a pink snack food buffet for our guests to munch on! I centered it around the chocolate fountian filled with pink white chocolate, it didnt work as well as planned but it was still yummy. We had different kinds of cake balls, rice krispie treats, several kinds of fruit, candy, cotton candy, pink and white marshmallows and cute little cupcake lollipops; some stuffed with a cake ball.

I also knew that I wanted some sugar cookies on a stick, so I baked some up and decorated them, there were flowers and PINK letters.

I found these cute little cookies at WM on sale a little while back and I thought they looked so dainty and girly and of course mostly pink!

Pink Ghiradelli chocolates and fluffy pink cotton candy!

Donuts, fruit and rice krispie treats waiting to be dipped!

Close up of the cupcake lollipops, some were stuffed with cake balls and some were solid white chocolate! Bakerella makes adorable cupcake balls on a stick, but these were just so much easier.

Boyish Goodie Bags

No self-respecting 5 or 6 year old boy would want a pink girly goodie bag so I had to whip up 4 boyish versions. Like I said earlier in the Pinkalicious book she must eat green to return to normal, so the boys are getting green goody bags.

I snagged 4 green gumball machines at Walmart and then added some other green (yummy) goodies. They are getting a big ol' helping of green M&Ms, 2 transformers Jibbitz, a pack of green fruit sensations gum and we took a special trip to the candy store and bought a mixed array of green Jelly Bellys (my fave is 7UP, Lindsay liked Watermelon and we bought zero Jalapeno`) Topping the whole thing off is one Giant Green lollipop!

I hope the little men enjoy this on reprieve from PINK!

Girly Goodie Bags!

Well this party is mostly girls, with only 4 of the greatest little boys ever invited!

I do have boyish goodie bags, but we will start with the girly ones, cause they rock!
Inside the goodie bags we have a mini PINK gumball machine, along with pink spree jelly beans, pink M&M's, pink princess tattoos, a small Littlest Pet Shoppe Jibbitz for crocs, a GIANT pink lollipop, pink candy lipstick, pink mini reese cups and a pink raspberry Ghiradelli chocolate. The best part of this goodie bag is a giant pink Daisy hair clip with a rhinestone center, along with a Pinkalicious pink hair extension clip (thank you Burger King for having these, and thanks for just selling them so I didnt have to eat your crappy food)
I packaged the whole shebang into a clear celophane bag and tied it shut and added the Daisy clip onto the outside!
Here is the side view with the darling Pinkalicious hair clip!

Yes, I am a terrible blogger...

I realize it has been months since I've blogged, but really we are rather boring around here so you didnt miss too much!

I am in the process of planning this little firecrackers 6th birthday (doesnt really seem possible). So you probably know how I loved to plan a kid's party so here's how we start!!

This year we are celebrating with a big ol' Pinkalicious Party. If you aren't familiar with Pinkalicious, it is a book about a little girl who makes pink cupcakes with her mom and eats so many of them that she turns pink. She goes to the doctor and her only option is too eat only green things, she doesnt and sneaks more pink cupcakes and turns red!

It is a darling little book, if you have a little girl in your life look at it for her!

Anyhow, any good birthday must start with a cute invitation.

I knew we wanted a cupcake and of course it had to be Pink! We hit my mecca (Hobby Lobby) and had to find the perfect papers for our paper cupcakes.

Lindsay spied a pack of pink cardstock with 5 shades of pink, none were Blush and Bashful though. We snagged that at half off (a whopping $2.50) and some pink swirly openstock on 50% off as well.

We got to work!

I whipped out my Sweet Treats cartridge. I wanted this cart so bad and got it around Thanksgiving, this is the first time I used it (I have problems, yes indeed)
I cut the cupcake out in solid pink and then cut it out again in white and once again in pink swirly paper. Then I cut the liner, one with lines and one solid.

I glued the front of the cupcake together first starting with the non-solid liner, then the solid liner, then the swirly and finallly white. Next I tured the whole shebang into a pocket by only attaching the pink cupcake with glue on the edges.

After my cupcakes were done, I cut out a much smaller cupcake and added a big red juicy cherry to it. The small cupcake has the party info and slips right into the big cupcake pocket. To get the details you pull up on the cherry and voila`!

Next Goodie bags! Whoo hoo, I got those suckers down early this year! Sweet!
