Easy Horse Themed Cake

Horse Birthday Cake - with cake bunting and a Schleich horse figurine - on beafunmum.com

I love how the cake for my daughter’s 8th birthday turned out.  Easy too.

Materials

Rectangle cake (with chocolate icing – for the paddock)

Horse Plastic Toy Figurine  (I used a Schleich horse figurine and fence which acted as a gift for my daughter too)

Cake bunting (I purchased from Sew Sweet)

On the day of the party, I put the decorations on the already-make cake and it was done.

The Party

We held the party at a park. I hung bunting in the tree and hired a few ponies for the children to ride.   It was all pretty simple: craft, pass the parcel, a play dough game, playground to play on, cake to eat and ponies to ride.

Pass The Parcel

Fabulous classic party game.  To mix it up, I wrote a question on each wrapping layer of brown paper for the respective child to ask the party girl.

Materials

Brown craft paper

Decorative or regular tape (I used Scotch Expressions Magic Tape)

Small individual treat

Permanent parker or texta

Pass the parcel.  Love this classic party game.  To mix it up, I wrote a question on each wrapping layer of brown paper for the respective child to ask the party girl along with a little treat.

Questions like:

  • What’s your favourite colour?
  • Where do you like to go for holidays?
  • Do you have a favourite movie?
  • What song do you like?
  • Which do you like to do best:  a) swim b) draw c) jump up and down

This party is just beautiful Kelly. You did a lovely job.

I especially love the idea for pass the parcel! I’ll be using that for Miss Possum’s party for sure!
