My Super Sassy daughter planned this party one year in advanced. On her 4th birthday, she decided she wanted this theme for her 5th birthday party and she wanted the cake with Barbie inside. I just followed along with her ideas. She made it easier for me! It was difficult finding inspiration because it’s not a popular theme. However, I’m a woman who loves a challenge.
I made sure to get her the Super Princess Power costume on Amazon. I loved how a few kids were superheroes and a few were princesses. The moms and dads loved that it wasn’t’ too expensive to attend the party.
I found most of my vendors on Etsy. I ordered my invitation first from Imagination Invites and used the colors from her design. I knew my daughter wanted pink everywhere, but I did not want to use the typical Barbie silhouette, so I decided Super Hero callouts would be my silhouette. I found these cute ones in my color scheme, hot pink, teal, purple and yellow at Parti Partie Party.
I printed and cut them myself, and taped right on my backdrop. I added balloons and ribbons around the hot pink backdrop and the super hero/princess look was complete. I purchased the backdrop from Pixel Perfect Print and the table cloth is from Party Crush Studio.
I downloaded the following printables right from the Barbie website: the ones on the treat boxes, the coloring pages and the rice krispies treats flags.
The Barbie cake dress was a very close imitation to the actual Barbie in Princess Power costume. Since I couldn’t find an actual super hero Barbie at the store, I used a ballerina Barbie that comes with the built-in hot pink top and the pink tiara. I made the skirt, cape, belt, cuffs and mask in fondant.
Both rice krispies treats and chocolate covered Oreos have fondant decorations as well.
I just think the capes on the back of the rice krispies treats are so cute! I bought the mask shaped cookie cutter from Sugary Charm to make the super cool masks. The actual masks that I gave away at the party are from my local party shop.
For the kids table, I just decorated with generic paperware from my local party shop in the party colors. I already had the pink table cover and teal runner.
To make easy balloon centerpieces, I added wrapped candy inside glass vases and inserted the balloon weights. I couldn’t find the actual theme, so I ordered the regular Barbie balloon, stars and regular balloons in the party colors.
On the activity table, I had coloring pages, crayons, masks and treat boxes- with candy, Barbie toys for girls and Star Wars toys for boys. All of these with a princess castle bounce house and this party was Princess Power Success!!!!
I hope I gave you enough ideas to make your own Barbie in Princess Power theme Birthday for your powerful princess! Stay tuned for future tutorials on the Barbie cake and the other sweets. Don’t forget to send me your comments, questions and pictures. Let’s live the cake life!
