Today's birthday party is a mock party set up. It is no body's birthday but I have just set up my table with the kind of food kids love for their party.
Chocolate is the most relished flavor with kids, so
I made Chocolate cup cakes and dipped them in Chocolate Ganache.
Kids love pizza and they hate toppings, so here are some coin pizzas , which have a mild purée and just cheese... Margarita if you want to call it so !
Cheese sandwiches are preffered by kids ..instead of the vegetable ones, and adding little cucumber sails to these adds an element of interest for the kids.
Pop corn and chips ! Can any party be complete without these two...?...well I just got a packet of MW popcorn and they were done in a jiffy, the chips are of course store bought.
Dessert is something that the kids always relish, so I have prepared a basic vanilla custard and made grape caterpillars to go with these...These could be served in individual cups or glasses.
Lastly I prepared some stirring straws..which actually should be served with hot milk...but I think the kids can just pick a straw and lick it or enjoy it as a chocolate.
This was my mock party and after I clicked pictures I realized I should have called my grand kids, they would have loved it....but ...my 15 year old niece and I both celebrated ...and enjoyed all the goodies. I saved some cup cakes and straws for the kids. They went crazy with those straws, which took me a while to make, even though they are very simple.
