My daughter Paige is totally in love with Dora so when it came to choosing a theme for her 2nd birthday, Dora was definetly the go. When I have a party I like the whole lot to be in one theme so I went Dora mad.

First we had the Dora cake which I made entirely myself..(no special Dora shaped cake tins were used ). I just jumped on the net and printed out the picture that I wanted to use then blew it up to the size that I needed and used it as a template to cut the cake into shape and I just love how it turned out. Paige absolutely loved it.

Secondly I hand made little Back Pack party bags out of cardboard for all the kids to take home and lastly we had her dad get dressed up as Dora for the day. I made him a paper mache head and brought some very special orange hot pants for him to wear. He definetly looked the part. I must admit he got a few laughs but he looked great.
