Have you done any Christmas Shopping yet? I like to get mine done early but I’m always on a look out for a Bargain. I’ve found a selection of bargain kids toys share with you. Enjoy!?

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week we made Apple Flap Jacks but my little cooks were feeling a little reluctant to help out so I called them Apple Jacks which is a character from My Little Pony. Straight away Boo became more interested to find out more.
Each week on Kids in the Kitchen I invite my readers to come and share their child friendly recipes or whatever their kids have been up to in the kitchen. I then share these posts on Pinterest, Twitter and here on my blog. So please feel free to join in anytime, each linky lasts for one month and you can post as often as you wish. It’s all about the sharing.
Last week the Free From Fairy shared some delicious looking Date and Ginger bars which look so simple to make.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,
My 7 year old daughter asked for a My Little Pony party for her birthday. Here in the UK My Little Pony is only just starting to make a come back so I found that finding tablewear was not so easy. I did manage to find most of what I needed on Ebay though, and I bought a table cloth in pink from a local store.
For decoration I used balloons and Happy Birthday Banners, they were not My Little Pony related but I tried to match the colours.
As my daughter’s favourite My Little Pony is Rainbow Dash I found I could also get away with a rainbow theme. I used this on the cupcakes, decorating them in rainbow sprinkles. I also used it in the birthday cake but more about that in a minute.
For Activities we started by decorating pony templates which I had made and printed on to card. I cut them out before the party. The girls were given pens, glitter glue and glitter to decorate their ponies, then we finished them with strips of wool for their tails.
We also played the usual party games of Pass The Parcel, Musical Statues and Musical Bumps. Everyone attending managed to win a little prize.
Then we had an apple hunt to feed the ponies. I hid cardboard apples all around the garden and the girls went out to search for them. When they brought them back to me I rewarded them with pony food (sweeties) and the one who brought the most back won a little prize.

For Food we had a buffet spread of sandwhiches, sausage rolls, salad, chicken dippers, crisps, cupcakes, biscuits, salad and fruit. A little good and a little bad 🙂

The Cake I made myself and you can see how here. I wanted a rainbow cake but not the usual layers of coloured sponge because I find these a little sickly with all the butter cream in between layers. Also, it’s difficult to do a rainbow cake that doesn’t end up really high. So I had a go at mixing colours within the cake and I think it turned out nice. The cake I wanted white to contrast the colourful interior, then I decorated it with a fondant pony and rainbow.

There was only a small turn out but the girls had lots of fun.
