Hayden's Angry Birds Star Wars Party

My big boy turned 4 last month and I'm finally getting around to posting about his party!  We did an Angry Birds Star Wars party since that is something he's been a bit obsessed with lately. 

I kept things pretty simple for this party (maybe I'm still recovering from baby girl's party a few months ago, ha!)  Anyway, I think he enjoyed it just as much.

I decided to make the cake myself to save some money.  It definitely was not for the faint of heart up-close!!  Far from perfect, but edible!  I ordered the fondant characters from Etsy and was really pleased with how detailed and cute they were!

I bought some pre-made fondant and we (mainly Jeff) cut out the number 4 and stars.  He also rolled a million little balls for the bottom.  I tried a new buttercream recipe that called for nutella and it was delicious!!  It was basically your typical buttercream recipe with a cup of nutella but I only used about 1/2 and that was the perfect amount. 

I also had cupcakes (store bought) that I added little AB Star Wars figures on top of for favors.

Can't believe he is 4 already!
