Have boys and girls with the same birthday party, and you’ll never have a cohesive theme.
This year it was baseball and bunnies. (and I will admit to influencing the baseball decision since a nice round baseball is an easy shape for making a pinata and a cake….oh, and thank you Phillies for continuing to win in the playoffs or else it would’ve kinda put a damper on the whole baseball theme.)
The baseball cake was baked in a very well greased round ceramic bowl. The cake you see here was the second try since the first one was was not well oiled enough and refused to come out of the bowl in a round shape.
The bunny cake was made from two round cakes. One cut in half and set on the cut sides next to each other for the body and the other round cake cut in quarters and set the same way against the body for the head. There were a few left over pieces for taste testing.
The pinatas were started a week in advance and you’ll find the directions in our post from last year’s birthday.
Due to time constraints (i.e. mommy was lazy), I refused to make the pinata into a bunny shape and took the easy way out and just had Makenna paint bunnies on it. Plus the idea of whacking a bunny looking pinata with a baseball bat seemed a little mean and could send two year old Alexandra into therapy.
The baseball was easy, and the perfect pinata since we were hitting them with a baseball bat.
Birthday Party over.
Halloween costumes up next….Ghosts anyone? Please.
