DIY: Sprinkle Balloon Cake Topper

We stopped using traditional birthday candles several years ago when she was turning 3, who knew 
three little candles could ignite hair so quickly. Ever since then we opt for a flame free option, usually pinwheels but this year
I wanted to do something different, something exciting!
Birthday girl and party goers had no idea the balloons were filled with sprinkles.
So when it came time to make a wish and pop them everybody was surprised! 
I suggest doing this outside it can leave a bit of a mess on the table, but it's well worth a little cleanup.

Using heavy duty scissors cut the wooden skewer to size, using the end with the point to insert into the cake.

The balloons can be blown up using helium or plain air. The size of the balloons determines how many sprinkles it can hold. 

The larger the balloon the more sprinkles.

Not only were the sprinkle balloons a surprise so was the inside of the cake, I managed to kept it's colorful layers a secret despite my excitement!

Any kind of sprinkles will work for this, we used a sewing pin works to pop the balloons.

Happy Wednesday!
