when i asked Mbali a few months back what cake she wanted for her Birthday. without fail she said a Dora ballerina cake. That i took as a cue for what her party theme will be. And started planning. The I knew i couldnt do this all by myself I decided to enlist the help of party planner Elana from Events by Elana. I explained to her my concept and she immediately sprang into action organising everything.
Mbali’s favourite colour is purple and then pink is a close second. So we decided to go very girly sorbet pink and purple.
The Macaroons was absolutely to die for from MMM Macaroons
The Cake was a masterpiece in itself.
Then it was time for a bit of Dora the explorer activities. When all the kids weren’t looking we hid the cake under the table so i gathered the kids and broke the news. Mbali was distraught when she found that Swiper the fox has swiped the cake. But soon cheered up when i told her they will have to go look for the cake via the map. The venue we choose Willow feather farm had a perfect setting for this expedition.It read: Through the jungle gym, Pass the animal farm and then to the party house.
after everyone went through the jungle gym it was map reading time again. and off to the farm area where the kids could feed the animalsThen the last stage was back to the party house where the cake was once again and it was singing happy birthday time.And next was cutting the cake.Mbali was so excited when she saw the cake was purple inside. And not only did this cake look stunning but it tasted devine. You know a cake is good when at the end of the party there is almost no cake left.
Thanks to my friend Karin Meiring that attend my party and took some pics of my family so i could edit it later.
