Peep and the Big Wide World Birthday Party

About a week before Elle's 4th birthday, she decided on a Peep and the Big Wide World party. The characters are easy shapes and the show is quite fun, so I was game. Making the pinata was our first task. I used 4 elastic headbands on the balloon to help make it more spherical. After about 3 days of waiting, Peep was ready to be painted.
We did 2 or 3 coats. I think this was the girls favorite part. Elle painted Peep's red top also. Bryn kept wanting to paint Peep blue.
The day before the party, we set out to tackle the cake. It was supposed to be Chirp, Peep's friend. But, right before we were to ice the cake, I realized we didn't have red food coloring. Yikes! Elle's solution: put blue, green and yellow together. Ok...
Scared Peep!


Finally!

Chirp, Elle style. Just pretend the green is really red and the yellow is really orange. Then you'll have a perfect Chirp.
Happy 4th birthday Elle!

THat looked like an awesome party. I am glad I got the invitation. I had a cat cake on my third birthday and I still remember it. I am sure Peep the cake and pinata will go down in history.

Super fun. I love Peep. That show's so funny. One of the few kids shows that I enjoy watching. Elle's so cool. Fun pinata, and cake. I'm impressed.

I have no idea who Cheep or Chirp or Burp or Lirk are.

No idea...

But the pinata and cake sure were awesome!
