“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
The kids had a blast, the adults enjoyed themselves and I had fun making all the bits and pieces (sometimes with a little help from the kidlets).
First - the cake, or in this case, cakes.
I decided they needed a form of cake each, even thought it was a combined party. So Kyan got a one and a half tier cake and Cadence got cupcakes and a 'smash' cake.
The cake 'board' was iced with deep blue icing for water, the bottom layer i first placed light blue fondant over it. I then rolled our some white fondant and using the cake tin as a guide for the size of the drape I cut out the kind of doily shape. I place the doily shape over the light blue fondant and then made small dents around the edges.
The top layer I cut on a slight angle for the iceburg and covered it in white fondant. Finished off with some white fondant snowflakes (using a snowflake cutter I bought from Ebay) and little round fondant snowballs.
I bought some packets of tissue paper for $1 each and made some tissue paper fans for the backdrop and random decoration around.
Each kid got a party crown made from glitter card ($2 a pack) and edged with some wee feather boa strips I had lying around.
The cups I wrapped in glitter paper and ribbon :)
We also had giant iceburg marshmallows and some ice jellies :)
Kyan also had a super cool crown that was a boy version of Cadence's. I had intended to make him a cloak aswell, but I ran out of time.
They also got lootbags with all the usual stuff in them.
Hopefully you get some great ideas for a winter themed party from my wee blog and feel free to ask any questions, leave a comment or pin to pinterest :D
