We are that family that starts the weekend camp trips in early May and continues all through the summer and wraps up the season just before school starts in September. So it was really not surprising that my son Karlo decided on a camping theme for his sixth birthday! So many great memories have been made while out in the wilderness; sitting around the campfire, fishing with grandpa and dad, going on long ATV rides. Really, this is the magic of childhood :)
When I plan a party I always ask my sons what they want most, Karlo said he wanted to see, “all the animals in nature”. Well, I had already designed the printables so I incorporated some cute forest animals in the sweets I made.
These cute little owls were a combination of several Pinterest cupcakes I had pinned. I used the petal frosting technique for the belly and then frosted the wings and ears with a star tip. Fondant eyes really made them pop!
The cute little toadstools were purchased at a local cake baking supply store in Langley called Scoop-N-Save. They have all sorts of fun baking items for all party themes!
A scavenger hunt was a perfect party activity, too bad our Westcoast weather didn’t want to cooperate! I am sure that it will come in use sometime over the Spring or summer months.
Oh how I loved this sly little fox! I saw a tutorial on how to create this cutie on Handmade Charlotte and I knew we would be great be friends! It was actually a very simple to follow tutorial and turned out even better than I had hoped :)
My birthday boy was so happy with his party, he especially loved momma’s hedgehogs!
These cute little hedgehog critters were inspired by none other than the fabulous Martha Stewart. Just used a particular frosting tip, sliced almonds and the nose and eyes are fondant.
I hope you had S’more fun looking at the photos!
