Everything was Star Wars for Cameron’s fifth birthday party.
The cake: Yoda, lime flavoured as requested by the birthday boy.
I tried a white chocolate and fondant mix to cover the cake. It was nice, but it didn’t go that well with the lime cake (a white chocolate mud cake would be a perfect match – next time). The kids did not care at all.
The light sabers: It was a craft activity, a physical activity, and something to take home. Perfect.
It’s amazing what you can do with pool noodles, duct tape, and stickers. (Tip: To half the pool noodles, use a good bread knife.)
The battle: Outside and epic.
The food: I didn’t go all out on themed food this time as I put all my effort into the cake and the light sabers. Kids are easy to please thankfully.
The bottles: Customised by my lovely daughter and her awesome drawing skills – though Jabba looks a lot like something else… a tadpole, bean sprout, or *ahem*.
The party bags: Simple white paper bags with a Storm Trooper seal. Inside was just a little something to take home with the light sabers.
And that was another year, another party.
