Cherry Blossom Birthday

For my daughters 7th birthday party, she wanted to go with a cherry blossom themed birthday party... It was alot of fun to plan!
Here are some pictures:

For an appetizer, we made sushi... rice krispie sushi that is...

We made it from rice krispie treats, red swedish fish, and green apple fruit roll ups.

I also tried my hand at making fortune cookies, dipped in melted white chocolate, and rolled in sprinkles... these were alot harder to make than I thought, but they turned out super yummy :)

We put these in colorful Chinese take-out boxes, and topped them with a cherry blossom fan for the girls to take home as favors.

I found some cute paper laterns at a party store in our colors- turquoise & pink...
I pinned them to the ceiling, above the dining room table, at varying heights.

Also made a flower arangement of cherry blossoms in a vase that had turquoise glass beads.

The menu for the day was the ever-so-classy top ramen (which they ate with chopsticks) and birthday cake.

For her birthday cake, I used the recipe from Chef Sasha (Private Chefs of Beverly Hills) for Tahitian Vanilla Cake (

Since my daughter loves mangoes, I substituted the white chocolate mousse for a mango filling. I covered the cake with light turquoise fondant and detailed it with pink and white buttercream and modeling chocolate. It was alot of fun to make, and alot of "YUM" to eat!
