Lemonade Mouth Cake
Posted by Tanya
My daughter decided to have a Lemonade Mouth birthday party this year. Today is her birthday, but I can still say she is seven until 4:51 pm! Her party was yesterday and we had a blast. We invited all of the girls on her dance team, a couple of friends from church and school. We ended up with the nicest bunch of girls in our house yesterday afternoon. I have been counting my blessings ever since. God is good!
The cake. We spend more time planning the cake than anything else for parties in this house. My girls have become quite the cake designers. Emma requested a cake that looks like the electric bass used by Mo in the movie Lemonade Mouth. She was standing over my shoulder supervising every detail. If the fondant color wasn’t quite right she had me keep working at it until it was just the way she wanted.
The guitar was made from a sheet cake. I cut the shape out of it and then covered with marshmallow fondant. The neck and head were a long bar of rice krispie treats covered in fondant. The strings were piped with royal icing and the details are black licorice, junior mints and chocolate chips. I also made a bunch of lemon cupcakes to go around the cake to help with the Lemonade Mouth look and theme.
The big surprise. The day before the big party we had the good fortune to meet up with the dad of one of the actresses from Lemonade Mouth. He watched Emma and her dance team perform a routine to one of the songs from the movie. He was very impressed and made a point to talk to the girls after the show. We mentioned Emma’s birthday party, so he said maybe he could get her an autographed picture as a birthday present. Then, in private, he told me that he would try to get his daughter to make an appearance at the party. And that is exactly what happened. Hayley Kiyoko, the incredibly sweet actress from my daughter’s favorite movie, showed up at her birthday party. She signed lots of autographs, took pictures with the girls and answered all of the girls questions. It was so much fun to see the joy on the kids faces as they got to meet Hayley.
As my daughter said, “that was the best birthday party ever!”
