But I do love themes, so here are a few “Narnia Party” ideas! Firstly, you can see the Snow Cake! It consists of the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Recipe, baked in several layers, stacked up with butter icing in between, then smothered in royal icing. To decorate, I melted some dark chocolate, piped some ‘tree’ shapes onto greaseproof paper, and put them into the fridge until they were solid enough to squidge into the cake!
And finally the costumes were fantastic! I wish I had more photos, but we had several wardrobes, an ice-queen (below), two fantastically vintage-clad evacuees, a couple of Aslans, a professor, a unicorn, and some of the main characters (ie. Susan & Lucy)… phew!
I was so excited to make this ‘lion hoodie‘ from a tutorial I saw on abeautifulmess blog… so just before coming back to uni I got my sewing machine out and got stitching. It only took a couple of hours in front of a film to make too.
