Another Birthday party has come and gone and my little man had a great day. This year we decided to have his party at our local Karate studio where both of my boys attend and the kids had a blast.
As I posted earlier we started off the event with these Karate inviations.
For me when decorating a party it is all about the details. I love coming up with a different idea for the favor bags, something the kids can use. This year I decided on doing up some t-shirts with a Karate guy on them and their names.
Then sticking with the theme I put them along with a few candies into these take-out boxes.
Of course my favorite part is the cake. I had big plans for this cake and then reality set in and I realized that what I wanted just wasn't going to happen. Really reality was my 3D figure falling apart three times and me throwing them in the garbage, lol.
So I kept it a little more simple.
I used a white buttercream icing as my base and then used red fondant to make the belt. My son is a Red belt so wanted it to be the same color.
I used fondant to create the ying yang symbol on the top.
For the Shurikens I borrowed my sons real ones to trace out the gum paste with and then copied the symbols off of them. Once they were all dried I pressed them into the cake to make them look like they were thrown at it.
Here is my little man doing some Karate games and wearing his new shirt.
Another party down and another one on it's way in two weeks. I had better get going on planning the next one.
