Today, we celebrated Jax’s 3rd birthday pawty. I can’t believe its been 3 years already. I got up early this morning to bake Jax a Peanut Butter Birthday Cake with bacon sprinkles and cheese frosting. And with the same cake batter I had enough for peanut butter cookies.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
-1 cup of white wheat flour
-1 tsp of baking soda
-1/4 cup of peanut butter
-1/4 cup of vegetable oil
Take out in 25-30 minutes
Once, I finished frosting the cake I made a cake topper, some birthday party hats, and paper fans to decorate the table.

Every year we travel to see family and do the long drive to see everyone. We had a great time playing games at Ben’s (Yakima, WA), doing raffles at my moms’ (Othello, WA), secret santa at my partner’s moms’ (Stevenson, WA), and see the kids open their presents (Vancouver, WA).
This year I did lot of handmade projects for family and friends: stockings stuffer, baggies, screen print pillows, and more. I also did lot of photo project to create a more personal gift: blanket, mugs, and magnets.
I am so happy to be able to be part of the customers’ special day. I do enjoy making these mini pinatas (and other party supplies) and love to hear their stories. When I don’t know the story I like to imagine what they are for… and what kind of party or type of person. I had someone order two pink whales and my mind thought “oooh twin’s party or baby shower.” Love Love it!
I remember making these with my mom when I was younger. I remember putting my tiny hands in her home-made glue in this cooking pot and slapping it on the balloon. I never thought of the process until now. I can see why she did the things she did. Home-made glue is lot easier than Elmer glue (which is what I use). I cherish these making pinata memories and happy to be able to share one of my families traditions.
For Melina’s birthday I created fun items:
1. Starting off with an “M” Pinata, which turnout out to look like the Monster Inc. logo and colors.
2. Reuse tin cans for plants,
3. Cardboard bubble message, and Paperbag vase holder, for those times when you need an extra hand to carry all your gifts. I made a cup sleeve with handles for her flower vase. Original or not, I thought it was a brilliant idea.
Today is my friend’s birthday. I asked her what I could do to help her and she mentioned wanting a piñata yesterday. I had one whole day to come up with something so I started making a paper-mâché star, but my balloon popped mid-day (not enough time to dry). Then I headed out to Debbie’s and had to make one with limited supplies since it was already 9pm. Here is how to make a piñata in no time with limited supplies.
scrapbook light paper
I glued poster-board paper together to make the layout. The poster-board wasn’t long enough so I had to glue parts together. If you have cardboard –use that! Thank you, Debbie for allowing me to use your supplies. The dogs were great (I was dog-sitting). I didn’t think the piñata was going to hold, but it did well, even the BIG kids got a chance to hit the piñata. The 10 hours of making the piñata was worth it.
