Cadence had a "party" themed party this year. Original huh? ;)
Anyway - at the party all the kids made party hats. Here is my sample:
I set out supplies for each kid. You can see the hat lying flat (blue). I just opened up a store bought hat and traced it, but through trial and error you could get the same shape. When we were done we stapled them shut.
The cake was super easy. It is just a rectangle cake, and I cut circles and strips out of ready to use fondant. The cupcake toppers are miniatures of the hat pattern attached with toothpicks.
Sorry about the blurry invitation pictures - I was using an old camera.
