A Fairy Birthday!

I had such a blast creating this fairy themed birthday for my two year old daughter, everything from the favors to the food was fairy themed. I made a cake in the shape of a mushroom by using a rice krispie base molded into the shape of a mushroom base. And a bundt cake for the top of the mushroom. For some fairy food treats I made star sandwiches with strawberries and strawberry cream cheese cut into little stars. I used mozzarella cheese sticks and cherry tomatoes to create little toadstool snacks, brushed with a little olive oil and Italian seasonings they were definitely a crowd pleaser. I hand dipped pretzel sticks into pink chocolate and sprinkles to create mini fairy wands.
For favors each little fairy got their very own fairy wings and wand ( I embellished these with stickers I created, order your very own at my etsy site)
Everyone had a fairy Good time!


  1. Hi!!! I LOVE the mushroom/toadstoll cake. I have seen many of these cakes online and yours is one of the best! We are doing a garden fairy party for our 5 year-old in March. How did you do the top of the mushroom with a bundt cake? Did you do two cakes and carve it to a dome? Do you have any place where you have step-by-step directions for putting the mushrool together? Thank you!!!

  2. meant....mushroom, not mushdrool :)

  3. Hi there, thank you for stopping by. This was one of the easiest cakes to make, I simply made a strawberry bundt cake following the box directions. I used a cardboard cake round ( sold at Walmart, or hobby lobby) and released the bundt cake into the cardboard round. While making the bundt cake I also made cupcakes to use to fill the hole left by the bundt pan at top of the cake. I iced the cake using strawberry frosting and piped on the polka dots. To make the base I used a medium sized metal pail, washed it well and then thoroughly greased it. I made a batch of rice krispie treats and packed the pail full. Let it harden before removing. I added a piece of pvc pipe about 3inches in diameter to the center of the pail to add strength to the base. After the base is done just set cardboard round with bundt cake on top. Have a great party. Contact me at if you need invites or other party items ;)
