Here are some pictures from before the party:
Solana specifically requested a unicorn pegasus cake. She wanted it to be in the shape of a unicorn pegasus but we couldn't bring ourselves to spend $80 on a cake. I had another plan, anyway.She was really disappointed when she saw the cake on the table (before the topper) but I promised her that she'd like it and to be patient. She was thrilled with the toppers.
She flies to her high bed. Go there (Solana's bunk bed)
Pinata time! Only two girls got to hit the pinata before it fell. Sort of a fail but at least we got a cute picture. :-)
They finished the scavenger hunt and pinata so quickly that we had tons of extra time. They hung out on the playground for a while as Dave and I set up for cake. (Dave just cleaned and stained it so I had to get a picture.) Thank goodness for our friends, Heidi and Kristine who decided to stick around for the party. They were life savers!
It turned out just the way I hoped and was really delicious, too! Here's the recipe for the cake. I just doubled my own cream cheese icing recipe, though, because her icing seemed way too complicated.
Time to open presents. After the first present we were fighting off girls from practically crawling onto Solana's lap. It's so funny how kids do that!
