Ninjago Birthday Cake

Good Morning everyone! I have pre-scheduled this post because I'm sure I'm going to need to recover from the night's festivities!

Today I am sharing with you the cake I made for my son's 9th Ninjago themed Birthday Party!
What do you think? I love how he turned out!!! Actually, wasn't very hard to make either.

Ninjago Birthday Cake

Here's a quick pictorial on how I made "KAI's" head.

Ninjago Birthday Cake

  1. I baked, sliced and filled with icing, the centers of two 5 inch cakes. Separating the layers with a cake board.
  2. Next, I dirty iced the entire head.
  3. Rolled out my fondant pieces. For the eyebrow, I drew and cut out a shape on a piece paper first and laid it on the fondant then cut it out with the tip of a sharp knife.
  4. I placed my pieces on top of the rolled fondant I used as the face. I "glued" the pieces with a little water using a small paintbrush.
  5. Then I placed the face on the head. At this point, I placed the head on the bottom layer of the cake that I had already covered with black fondant.
  6. Finally, I wrapped the rest of the head with Kai's Ninja mask.

The top part of the cake is chocolate flavored and the bottom 10 inch layer is made out of a yellow cake. The entire cake is covered with a vanilla buttercream icing and finished with fondant.


Hope you have enjoyed this Ninjago Birthday Party Series of posts, I hopefully will have some pictures of the party to share with you all soon!

Up next...


Have a great Sunday and thanks for coming by,

Ninjago Birthday Party Oreo Pops

No, you aren't seeing double! Yes, this is my second post today! Since I made two different kinds of cookies I thought I would share how I made these Oreo Pops with you all as well!

Ninjago Birthday Party Oreo Pops

Here is what you will need:

One package of Double Stuff Oreos
White Candy Melts
Lollipop sticks
Icing Colours

Directions:

Melt your Candy Melts in the microwave at 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each increment. I added a teaspoon of shortening to make the consistency of the melts a little runnier. 

Ninjago Birthday Party Oreo Pops

Twist apart all of the Oreo cookies. With the lollipop stick make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie. Dip the end of the lollipop stick and place it into the indentation you just made in the cookie.

 Place the top of the cookie back on. Once you have about half of them done place them in the freezer until you are ready for the next step.

With the chilled cookies that you just removed from the freezer, dip the cookies one at a time into the melted chocolate. I used a spoon to drizzle over them, I found this way I wasn't leaving "Oreo dust" behind. Shake off the excess chocolate by tapping the side of the bowl gently. 

TIP: To keep my Candy Melts from hardening I had placed my glass bowl on top of another bowl that had been filled with boiling water.

Place your dipped Oreo's on parchment paper to dry.

Once the cookies were dry, I finished them off by adding their faces. See my Sugar Cookie post on how I added the Royal Icing.

I hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial on Oreo Pops, a great alternative to Cake Pops. I love them both, I just wanted to try something new!

Ninjago Birthday Party Sugar Cookies

Hi everyone! Today is party day!!! Woohoo, I may be more excited than the Birthday Boy, LOL! Everything is ready for tonight, phewww! *sigh*  

The next thing I'm going to share with you today is how I made my sugar cookies. Guess what... this was my first time ever, and I am so happy with the results! If I can do it, you can too!

Ninjago Birthday Party Sugar Cookies

The first thing I did was look up a recipe for making sugar cookies. HERE is the one I finally used.

Next, I made Royal Icing. HERE is the recipe I used for it.

I made my icing consistency a bit on the runnier side. I wanted to pipe and flood the cookie right away. I was a little impatient, hehe!

I then outlined the outside of the cookie and the outside of the mask and went straight into flooding them.

I first did all the white and then all my red cookies. Once those were piped and flooded I then went back and flooded the center faces with yellow icing. You need to wait at least 20 minutes before adding another color.

I finished them off by pipping on their eyes and eyebrows. Some of the black icing I used for the eyes ended up bleeding into the yellow icing... I probably was too impatient, and didn't wait for the face to harden up enough or my black icing was too runny! Either way, they still taste the same but look like they have on runny mascara, LOL! ;)

I then let these little Ninjas rest overnight. The next day I wrapped them individually and placed one in each treat bag for Tomas' guests!

Ninja Throwing Stars


Well, the Birthday Party is tomorrow!!! I have been so busy with work and catching up with everything else around the house that I haven't had time to put up any of my recent Ninjago projects!

Today I want to share with you the Ninja Stars I made for the kids. I remember making many of them as a kid but have since forgotten. Click here for the pictorial I used to make mine. There are also a lot of YouTube videos on them as well! Hopefully, we will have time to play a little game with them. If any of the kids at the party want to learn how to make one themselves I will take some extra paper with me to teach them how.

Ninjago Cupcake Toppers - Free Print and Cut Silhouette File


Hey everyone are you tired of Ninjago yet? I'm getting really close... It feels like I've been eating, sleeping, breathing all things Ninja! I can't wait to see it all come together already! :)

Today I want to share with you the Ninjago cupcake toppers I made. I'm still not sure I will be using them like that. I may just use them as food picks and sporadically place them on the food trays.

I created them again using the Silhouette software. I printed them and then cut them out on the Cameo. Here is what they look like once they were cut out.

They come together in a matter of minutes. All that is left to do is fold and glue them down onto a toothpick. I just used a dab of hot glue and pinched the two pieces of paper together onto the toothpick. Really easy!
