5 year olds birthday....theme Carnival.....my old brain just can't click...mother says the invitation will look like a ticket..the rest is up to me...I don't have any little kids...and so far can't seem to get a grandchild out of my two grownups.... ....
so....was thinking...cotton candy...lollipops..(adven..loved those swirly ones you made for one of your cakes)...popcorn???
What do y'all think??
I did a search on circus in the gallery. Here are some ideas that may help. Try a search on carnival and popcorn also. I think someone made cupcakes decorated to look like small boxes of popcorn.
When I think of carnivals, I think of ferris wheels, games, cotton candy, popcorn and candy apples. I don't have a cake idea, but these are what comes to my mind when I think of carnivals.
Maybe this is cheating, but could you put a funnel cake look as the top of the cake. Yummy with powdered sugar. Not sure how, maybe a large round tip. Of course, if I did it, it might look like a cowpie. Not pretty. Sorry, probably a lame idea. Funnel cakes are my favorite at the carnival.
What about a carousel cake?
I'm doing a carnival themed cake in Sept for my daughters 3rd birthday. I got the idea from the 2005 yb. It is 2 cakes with the carousel tier in between, has gum drops around and then has the cake ice cream cones on top. It's so cute. If you want me to scan it I will.
you could make a carousel. two round cakes with horses and poles in between
