Have 2 or 3 different Birthday treats ready for the party. Using small
portions has helped us avoid massive food trash. Kids really aren't
there for all of the food, they are just so excited to being a part of
A decorated birthday cake is a must of course but we have a few ideas
that will help you 'add' to your Birthday desserts repertoire:
We always have a couple of cakes for each of our kids birthday parties.
I decided a few years ago to make a full portion of our cake from
scratch recipe and it turned out it was enough batter to make 2 full
birthday cakes and so it is now common to always have 2 cakes. themed
cakes with some nice decorating icing is always a big hit with our kids.
We would love
to add some homemade mini donuts that are held by wooden skewer sticks
to a center piece. Slushies, snow cones and soft ice cream straight out
of the machine would be a great party treat. Even mini doughnuts or
cake balls could be a really great addition to your kids birthday party.
Buying the machines themselves would be pretty cool but you could plan
ahead a bit and rent these machines for the party also. Ice cream, as
you can imagine I think can always work with kids and we have thoroughly
enjoyed flavored popcorn and caramelized popcorn balls as a snack
platter on its own. Try a few of these birthday treats, choose a few
and have some fun at your party.
Enjoy! You will have a great time.
