As we all know, I love birthday cakes & balloons. There’s not much in life that beats a cake, a balloon, and a birthday. For my most recent post in partnership with Balloon Time – I’ve combined my loves to create these fabulously fun birthday cake balloons!
No, you cannot eat them.
Yes, they sure are great fun.
The birthday cake balloons will make a major impact at your next party. Whether they are lining the actual cake table or brought along as a whimsical gift to the birthday gal, these three tiered cakes are sure to elicit joy for any birthday. They are basically a party in themselves!
To make the birthday cake balloons you will need:
- 3 circle Mylar balloons
- Balloon Time helium tank
- Ribbon for holding
- Hot glue
- A candle for each balloon cake
Birthday Cake Balloons
- Start by filling up the 3 Mylar balloons with helium.
- Holding the first two balloons, hot glue them together by placing hot glue directly in the center of one balloon (be sure not to touch the hot glue gun tip directly on the balloon) and hold until the glue has set. You will want to make sure the balloon filling tab is in the same spot on each balloon so they line up perfectly. You can fold this under and glue into place if desired.
- Attach the 3rd balloon in the same fashion, then attach a ribbon or string to the center of the last balloon.
- While holding the triple layer “birthday cake” upright, use hot glue to glue one candle onto the top of the stack.
Hold the balloons out, tie them up, or simply tape them to the table for a birthday cake that requires zero baking skills. :)
This post is done in partnership with Balloon Time, in honor of helium… my favorite way to fill a balloon.
