Oh my gosh!!! Did you know that you can melt marshmallow? Did you know that when you mix it with powdered sugar it forms a dough like frosting... similar to how you would kneed pizza dough?!?!? I think I have found the easiest thing yet to decorate my birthday cakes and I am super excited to share with you!
What you need
A bag of mini marshmallows
food coloring or frosting coloring
This recipe is pretty simple. I took half a bag of the mini marshmallows sprinkled with some water to coat and tossed. Then I microwaved the bowl for two sets of 45 seconds, stirring in between.
I added a cup of powdered sugar to the mix and then poured in out on a bed of powdered sugar.
This gets messy!!!!
I recommend adding in the frosting coloring while it's in the liquid stage. I didn't do this the first time and I wasn't fun!
I'm sorry for some of the blurry photos. the Hubby was on camera duty!!
This is the Tinkerbell Cake that I created from the Wilton Doll pan.
I created this Pixie Hollow sign from Dollar Tree flowers, foam letters and wreath!! This is now hanging in her room over her bed! I love reusing party decorations!
The flower pot was also created with materials from the Dollar Tree. I made three of them and placed them through out the party as center pieces!
Party favors include a pirate theme for the boy's (hook, tatoos, lost boys treasure) and a fairy spa theme for the girls (pixie dust, mini nail polish, mini nail kit, fairy rings). Everyone went home with their own Peter Pan story book!
I had Bella help me with painting the treasure chest!! I found this one at Michael's for $15.
I really wanted to create a pirate ship carved out of watermelon .. but they are not in season this time of year. So I created this pirate fruit bowl with a sail.
Bella couldn't wait to try out her new bike.
And after the guests left.... They had to put blocks on the pedals because her legs are too short!!
