Make the Initial Folds _ Begin with the white side of your paper face up. Fold your paper in half along one of the diagonals to make a large triangle. Fold the top point of the top layer of paper down as shown in the photo. This fold should be about 1ǘ inch from the bottom horizontal edge of the paper.
Sweet Endings _ The Cake _ Talk to your child about what she would like. A cake is a good option, but so are cupcakes, ice cream sundaes or even big cookies. You can incorporate the theme (if you have one) either by baking your own cake and decorating with small toys or even trying your hand at drawing something. Local bakeries, grocery stores and many big_box retailers (think Sam's Club or BJ's) can also make theme cakes to order. You may even want to let your young guests get in on the act __ bake a bunch of cupcakes, put out icing, sprinkles and other decorations like chocolate candies and let them get to work creating a culinary masterpiece.
