Rapunzel theme cake with Papercraft Tower

Rapunzel Cake
Dear friends I was missing from blog-land the past week as my little one celebrated her 6th birthday on Wednesday.Ever since we saw the movie Tangled my daughter has been in love with Rapunzel and so I bravely undertook my first  themed birthday party .
Rapunzel Cake
While my mom and I were brainstorming how to make the Rapunzel themed cake my daughter wanted to make a paper Rapunzel's' tower
I stuck a plastic container atop an empty box of shuttlecocks and added a conical paper roof for her tower.To keep her busy and out of our hair I asked her to decorate it  anyway she liked...It turned out so cute that mom and I decided it was indeed the best Rapunzel's Tower and based our cake scenery around it !!
Rapunzel's Tower
The cake is a circular chocolate cake and I drew a road on it with a knife.My little one decided how the scene would look [made our job easier!] 
Rapunzel Cake
 Placed Rapunzel's tower at the top of the road and Rapunzel walked along it with her prince to keep her company! 
Rapunzel Cake
We used a knife to cut wafers to make the fence along the road. I kept the cake icing fairly simple with just vines and flowers.  
Rapunzel Cake
 The toy castle was her birthday present and she was a bit reluctant to add it to the scenery as she wanted to keep on playing with it!
Rapunzel Cake
The Paper Rapunzel is a 3 D papercraft made using templates from Disney --it was quite easy to make and looked so charming!
Rapunzel Castle
We placed a Rapunzel cut out from her toy's plastic packaging onto a toy castle and used it as part of the party decor! 
Rapunzel Papercraft
This little Paper craft Rapunzel scene from Tangled Movie was again made by the birthday girl using some free printable from Hellokids.com
I am not a party gal and planning a simple party itself gives me ulcers so this theme party did give me its share of nightmares and panic moments!! but  far from being a disaster the party was a roaring success for my little one [so worth all the worrying and panic !]
We made lots of other Rapunzel themed party decorations --shall share them with tutorials in the coming days.
Do tell me how you like our birthday story!

  2. Happy 6th Birthday to your daughter! Like the Rapunzel theme cake. I enjoyed the Disney movie Tangled when my daughter & I saw it. My fav character of Tangled is the horse. I've made a couple theme cakes for my daughter's birthday: Snoopy, Scooby Doo, guitar and Garfield the cat. She likes chocolate cake with chocolate icing.
