Ykaie's Tinkerbell themed 3rd Birthday Party

Warning: Photo Overload!

The Party was such a success! Ykaie had a blast specially when it was time to open her gifts. She got what she had been asking for so long....a Baby Alive doll from her Mom and Dad! I got her a bathtub set, stroller and high chair for her new doll. My nephew who dressed as Peter pan hosted the party games. I made last minute costume for him.

Preparing for Ykaie's Tinkerbell themed birthday party 2

Making Candy fairy wands and Pixie dust

Are you familiar with Crazy dips lollipops? They are foot shaped lollies that you dip in this flavored powdered sugar with popping candy. Inspired by crazy dips, I made Candy fairy wands and pixie dust. Since I was having a hard time finding star shaped candy molds, I just improvised. I used aluminum trays and a star shaped cookie cutter in making the molds.

I dyed some bamboo skewers with food coloring . The next day I washed them under running water then dried them out in preheated toaster oven for 2-3 minutes .

Aluminum tray candy molds

I didn't cook up a whole batch of candy since I would only be making 7 pieces. I just crushed different flavors of hard candies.

I placed in the preheated toaster oven for 3-5 minutes until fully melted. Some oozed out but I just scraped them off with a knife.

Strawberry and grape flavored lollipop dips

Sugar + sugar = Sugar high! lol!jelir Hey, every child deserves some sweet treats once in a while! I only put 1 tsp of kool aid and 2 small packets of popping candy in each plastic bag.

I also made some candy ladybugs.

Sis has no idea what I will come up with these yet. She calls them ladybug skewers. lol!

Done baking the cookies! I inserted the bamboo skewers while the cookies were still hot. These are Fairy wand cookies. I'll be baking the cupcakes tomorrow night and frost them on Sunday morning.

Preparing for Ykaie's Tinkerbell themed birthday party 1

We are so busy preparing for Ykaie's Tinkerbell themed birthday party. It will just be a small and simple party for 7 little girls. I have been collecting Tinkerbell stuffs since last year. We had Ykaie's Tinkerbell costume custom made but didn't like the outcome. It was a disaster! I didn't bother to return it back. I just bought another fabric but was still looking for a good seamstress. I tried making Ykaie a Tinkerbell costume from an old shirt coz I needed to take some photos of her for the birthday invitation and banner layout I was going to make. They all liked the outcome and told me that Ykaie better use it for her birthday. I disapproved coz the shirt has prints on the front. I just turned it inside out so the prints won't be too conspicuous. It was also a bit short that Ykaie's underwear was showing. lol! Sis and cousin suggested that I just make the Tinkerbell costume myself so I bought a new green T-shirt. This time I made the length just right for her and the jagged edges a bit longer than the first one.
