The themes this year were My Little Pony and Spiderman. The main thing my son wanted was a Spiderman pinata, both of them like My Little Pony so it was a great fit all around. I bought a My Little Pony tablecloth, birthday banner, gift bags and plates. We also bought Spiderman plates and gift bags. I did make a few things including two cakes and a Pin the Tail on the Pinkie Pie game.
We had all the kid friends over on my daughters birthday and on my sons birthday 2 days later we had some family over so I made him a Spiderman cake. It was my first icecream cake and the first time I had ever made my own fondant. I made marshmallow fondant with these directions and it came out really well. The topper is a bank we bought at ToysRUs and I loved the way it worked out!
