Princess Party with a Castle Cake

I am thankful for our 3 year old princess who turned 3 this past Friday, Nov. 19th.  On Saturday, family and friends came over for a princess party.   I used this Family Fun cake idea to make this princess castle cake:

Lighting the 3 birthday candles

Before we had cake and ice cream, the guests did some arts and crafts.  The girls first decorated a wooden princess crown that was on a stick that I found at the Dollar Tree.  Here is our daughter painting her crown before sprinkling glitter on it: 

Then in the cake decoration section at Wal-Mart, I stumbled upon these great edible rings (that were on clearance) with edible ink markers that the girls decorated, then ate!  Wilton makes these rings and they were a hit!
After having a royal dinner of hot dogs, chips and fruit and eating cake and ice cream, our princess enjoyed opening her gifts.  Then each guest received a princess treat bag filled with a wand, candy jewelry, princess juicy snacks, princess silly bands, and a tube filled with a lollipop and a couple of pieces of candy jewelry.  
The tube (empty toilet paper tube) is in the left side of the bag covered with pink paper.  Here is how I made this great and easy craft that can be used for any occasion/holiday:

I cut a sheet of tissue paper in half and filled the tube with the treats.

The I rolled the tube up with the paper

Finally, I tied the ends with a shiny curly ribbon and placed a sticker in the middle then put each one in the treat bags.  So cute and easy!

Our daughter and our family and friends had a great time celebrating another special occasion in our family's life!

Hi Anna-Marie!
That's interesting about the crackers. I look forward to reading your post about them and then adding your blog link to this post :) I first saw this idea at a Girl Scout meeting with my daughter at Halloween and thought they would make cute favors for the birthday party :) Thanks for the vote, I voted for you too :) Hope your week is going well :) Happy Thanksgiving !

Thanks Melissa! The most difficult part of making this cake was making sure the cake didn't cave in all the way when I stuck the ice cream cones in upside down! :0
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
