Cave Girl Party with Caveman Costumes & Cave Cake

Posted by Kyle Designs on November 14, 2013

Cave Girl Party with Cave Birthday Cake

Cave Cake for Parker’s 9th. April 2005. In addition to the Cave Cake with a pig roasting over fire, we had the kids decorate cookies that I cut out in the shape of deer. For the meal, we had the kids make create-your-own shish kabobs. Grilled cheese spears: Assemble grilled cheese sandwiches and broil or pan grill. Then trim crusts, cut on the diagonal and wedge a thin bread stick into one side of each wedge. Display in a tall cup.

To create a Cave Girl or Cavewoman pinata, I started with a hula girl pinata as a base, stripped off all signs of hula skirt and flowers, then used animal print tissue paper to create a new skirt and bra. I decorated it with animal print jewelry, such as necklaces, earrings or bracelets. Just take a photo of bones, animals or cave drawings, and either tape onto a thin piece of cardboard and cut out or just tape the paper right onto the pinata.

I bought two yards of several different types of fake fur fabric that we threw over foam maps on the floor. My husband covered the walls of the “cave” with brown craft paper then drew on cracks, rock art and wild animals.

For the party, I also made very simple animal print cave girl dresses tied over one shoulder for all the girls. To make a dress, you’ll need a 1-1/2 yard x 45″ wide piece of animal print fabric – knit fabric is best. Put selvage edges together. Measure down 18″ from the top, start sewing seam and stitch for 24″, then stop. (If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can easily hand-stitch it with just a needle and thread. Or for a really quick and dirty job, just staple it together.) See photo. Top corner edges become ties for the top of the dress; bottom open area is kick area for bottom of dress. You can cut a zig-zag pattern along the bottom of the dress, if desired. Just be sure to mark off even distances, say every 3″, for the top of the zags. If fabric is wider, or the girls are thin, you can also cut off about 3″ along one selvage edge to create a belt (3″ x 45″).

For a caveman costume, don’t belt the costume, or just make it shorter, leaving ties at the waist to secure it. Stitch a 24″ long seam on side edge (staple if in a hurry – perfect if you can’t sew), then stop.

cavegirlspears.jpgGames and Activities – Spear Making, Treasure Hunting

Activities included spear making using Sculpey clay, twine, wood dowels and a wood burning tool; a slingshot contest; roasting marshmallows over a camp fire; and a treasure hunt for breakfast (hidden bagels) using paper clues. For the petroglyphs and cave drawings, as well as clues for the treasure hunt, I used clip art from Microsoft Clip Art Gallery.

Needed: Cake baking pans, cake mix, frosting and decorating accessories. Bake two cakes, one a 15″ square, the other in a a deep Pyrex mixing bowl (mine is from Pampered Chef) with a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup hooked over edge of bowl to create the “cave”. Cake decorations include a roast pig on spit (pink Tootsie Roll molded into pig shape with toothpick poked through), orange Dot gum drop candies cut into small pieces to create glowing embers under pig, chocolate cookie wafers for ashes under pig. Also, large pretzel sticks for either side of cave opening; malt balls, caramels and Tootsie roll bits rolled up to resemble rocks and boulders; Tootsie Pops with green Tootsie Roll leaves; black licorice trim; candy corn for fire inside cave.
