Park Birthday Cake

Today we celebrated our daughter's 4th birthday which was officially yesterday.  Her party today was at a nearby park just down the road from us.  It was a beautiful, warm November day as we celebrated Cupcake #4's big day with family and friends. 
For this year's cake I decorated a park cake to go along with our party location.  Playmobil 123 pieces came in handy, but I did make the swingset out of pretzel rods, black licorice, a Life Saver, and a yellow Laffy Taffy swing.

Here's a close-up of the swingset I built for the cake:

And here is the Playmobil 123 slide:

Then I made cupcakes and used the easy toothpick idea that I have used several times before to decorate each cupcake.  I copied and pasted a photo in a word document of my daughter on park equipment that a took a few weeks back.  I shrunk the picture and copied and pasted 24 copies onto one page. After printing the page and cutting out each picture, I then taped each picture to a toothpick.  Instant personalized cupcake decorations that are low cost, easy, quick, and cute!  :) 

It was a blessed birthday and a lot of fun!

The cake and cupcakes are beautiful! You did such a great job with them. I love the idea of putting pictures of the child on toothpicks to be put into the cupcakes and the swingset made of pretzel rods is just ingenious! it looks like your daughter had a wonderful birthday. May God bless her always!

Great job as always on the cake, Love the swing:) So glad it is still warm enough to enjoy the park for cupcake's birthday:) It is too cold here for park dates:(
