A pinata party cake for a teen birthday party.

Pinata-cake-on-Little-Big-BellI hosted a teen pinata party with a sleepover for 17 girls last night, for my daughter. It started at 630pm and the noisy fun went on till 3am but hey, it’s half term holidays for the girls.

Here’s the cake I ordered from Crumbs and Doilies.

It was a layered rainbow cake in pastel pink, green, yellow and lilac.

Then, there was the super surprise of overflowing Smarties when the cake was cut!

A rainbow and Pinata cake in one!

The girls also enjoyed chatting whilst designing their own white T-shirts with special fabric pens. They had so much fun doing the latter task that we didn’t get round to doing the fireworks outdoors as planned!

Off to recuperate now. Happy weekend all!
