Pixie Fairy Birthday Party: Step-by-Step on How to Make a Toadstool Birthday Cake!


As promised in my last post,  I'm sharing the step-by-step tutorial on How To Make a Toadstool Cake today! I've always wanted to bake a toadstool cake, and styling our Pixie Fairy Party gave the perfect opportunity to head to the kitchen and get a little creative and adventurous.

Now, I feel I need to add a little disclaimer here, to let you know I'm no professional baker and this was my total invention and first time making a toadstool cake. But hopefully it also shows that if I can do it (and super easily, I may add), then anyone can too! ;)

How to Style a DIY Pixie Fairy Birthday Party!

I had so much fun styling this party!  It gave me a chance to re-work our existing Pixie Fairy Designs from lilac to pink, and to create a simple yet charming kids birthday party!

Usually it takes me a good four months to plan a party from scratch (mostly because I'm a control freak who loves to DIY all aspects from printable, to baking and photography...), but for this one I wanted to incorporate simple decor ideas and create a magical ambiance that anyone can pull together quickly and without much fuss.

So check out the results, plus my super easy DIY party planning tips below - Oh, and the toadstool cake tutorial is also homemade, so watch out for a tutorial coming your way soon! ;)

Rainbow Jelly Bean Birthday Party

I (Mindy) live in northern California and one of our family’s favorite outings is to the jelly belly factory! Aubrey was so excited about this theme for her party {and so was her brother ... my little guy has lots of allergies and jelly belly beans are vegan and safe for him to enjoy too} and since Aubrey’s birthday occurred in the middle of writing my book, I relied quite a bit on the incredible vendors (listed at the end) to help make her day special! 

I also relied on a simple color scheme: Rainbow! The Jelly Bean Printables were designed by Bird’s Party - the jelly bean and striped patterns were exactly what I was looking for – and they were just perfect!

Winter Birthdays: Penguin 'Cool Igloo' Birthday Party

This super cool Penguin Birthday Party (pun intended..) was styled by our fabulous contributor Mindy from Creative Juice for Bird's Party Magazine Winter 2011

Mindy used Bird's Party Printables and create a really rather fabulous "igloo" inspired desserts table, and I think the cute details she incorporated made the party really soft and delicate, showing just how versatile the theme can be for any child's winter birthday - Boy or Girl!

Cool Customers: A Grown-up Royal Tea Party

The printables for this party were inspired by Kate and Will's Royal wedding, but one of my sweet customers from the UK asked me to mod it a bit, and she used the Royal Tea Party printables for a leaving-do instead! 

I've since received many requests for the same royal designs to be used in other events like birthdays, bridal showers and hen parties, so decided to make the printables a bit more general for other occasion - And now you too can add a touch of British flair to your own party and events! ;)

Check out all the adorable details and home-made desserts below!

Cool Customers: A Beautiful Woodland Birthday Party from Down Under!

Today's stunning party is courtesy of one our sweet customer's Claire, all the way from Australia! 

Claire loved our Red Riding Hood Party Collection but wanted a more woodland feel, so she asked me to design a little fawn instead! I must say, I think the party printables turned out really sweet, but Claire went above an beyond my wildest expectation with the styling of this party! Check it out...

Styled Shoot: Vintage Snow White Inspired Birthday Party!

I just yesterday saw the trailer for the Snow White movie coming out in April, and it looks soooo fab!! But it also reminded me that I still haven't showed you guys the Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs Inspired Party I designed!!

As much as I love the Disney film and designs, I much prefer a more "vintage" look so I gave these printables a nice twist with some soft pastels and earthy colors to bring out the whimsical side of this classic fairy tale! Hope you like it! :)

Styled Shoot: A Fairytale Princess Birthday Party!

When I was 10 I asked my mum for a Magical Princess Party, and dreamed of having one of those cakes where the princess is dressed with a huuuuge gown and her skirt is actually a cake? Anyone over 30 must know what I'm talking about...

Anyways, this princess party I designed last year, and styled by the mega talented Chris from Celebrations at Home, was totally inspired by my childhood experience - Though my mum could bake the exact cake I had in mind, she still did her best and made me feel like a princess on the day!! :)
