Knight Party – Part 3

Party day was lots of fun. The kids were running around barefoot bonking each other with balloons and genuinely had a good time just being kids playing together. I asked my son what party of his party he liked the best and he said, “I can’t answer that question because I loved everything.”

Dragon Cake, Knight Party – Part2

This is the Dragon cake I made for my son’s Knight Themed Birthday Party. This cake is all over the internet and you can find the original instructions here. My son had a special request; however, he wanted the dragon’s insides to be a “rainbow”…

After the candles were blown out...

First, you will need to separate the cake batter into 6 bowls & tint them with food coloring..

Drop the batter into an 8-9" pan, layering each color. Do not mix. I tried to create a marble effect by dragging a toothpick through the different colors, but it didn't really make a difference.

I needed 6 candles for my 6 year old. I used these long, slim candles to create fire coming out of the dragon's mouth. To bend them, I dunked them into hot water for 1-2 seconds at a time & gently shaped them the way I wanted.

Didn't get a great picture of the cake all lit-up, but it looked really cool (trust me)! My son loved it 🙂

Knight Party – Part1

My son just turned 6!
This year he requested (out-of-the-blue) a Knight themed party. The challenge was on! Below are pictures of the invite, color scheme, and activities….

I made a tunic for each child to wear & take home. The tunic was no-sew except for the side ties. It was simple to assemble, but I had to make 8 so it did take a couple hours to complete them all.

If you’d like specific info on anything you see, feel free to leave a comment.
Next, I’ll be posting about the cake >>
