FAIRY BREAD SHAPED CAKE

At One Stop Kids Party Shop our most popular girls birthday party themes are rainbow party supplies and Fairy party supplies so we have come up with the perfect and relative easy party cake for either of those party themes it is the Fairy bread Shaped cake. It looks like a giant piece of fairy bread except it is actually a gorgeous yummy party cake. It’s easily made with an 8×8 square cake pan and a serrated knife. I used some brown fondant strips around the edges to give it an authentic-looking bread “crust”, but honestly, the cake was pretty cute without the fondant!

LEGO PARTY CAKE

  • 1 butter cake, trimmed to the brick proportions on four sides
  • 8 marshmallows
  • Icing180g butter, softened
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups soft icing mixture, sifted
  • 3 tbsp milk + a little extra to thin the icing later
  • 2 tsp blue food colouring
  1. Cut your butter cake into the shape of a rectangular LEGO brick.
  2. Place the cake brick on a cake board or plate and place it in the freezer for 1 hour.
  3. While it is in the freezer, place the butter in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until it is pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla and combine.
  4. Using half a cup at a time, add the icing mixture and beat well. As the mixture becomes stiff, add a little of the milk and the food colouring until all of the icing ingredients are combined.
  5. Remove the cake from the freezer and using a small spatula, coat the entire cake in a thin coat of icing (crumb coat) and return the cake to the freezer for 30 minutes.
  6. When the cake is chilled, mix the remaining icing again for 1-2 minutes and give the cake an all over smooth coat.
  7. Thin the remaining icing with a few drops of milk and place the marshmallows on a fork and dip into the icing. Slide the marshmallows onto the cake using a knife.
  • There is a way to make this without even cooking. You can buy a madeira cake from the supermarket and coat it in some Betty Crocker ready-made Vanilla Frosting. It is totally cheating and perfect if you can’t find the time to cook.
  • The crumb coat is a very important step if you are after a really smooth finish.
  • I used liquid Queen brand food colouring. You could also colour this yellow, red, white or green.

Hawaiian pizza pops

Hawaiian Pizza PopsKIDS PARTY FOOD IDEAS

Please note I first found the fantastic idea for Hawaiian pizza pops on taste.com when I was searching for fun, creative yet simple kids party food ideas for my son’s birthday party. It is not my own personal recipe but I have made it and it went down a treat.!

Don’t forget it is very “In trend” at the moment to present your party food with a label to say what it is, ok so it might be obvious what it is but heck that is besides the point it’s all about the look so label your party food if you wish to present a very modern birthday party. At One Stop Kids Party Shop we sell the chalkboard signs and chalkboard labels that are very fashionable at the moment.

INGREDIENTS

Pizza dough

METHOD

  1. Step 1

    To make pizza dough, combine the water, yeast and sugar in a jug. Stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Stir until a soft dough forms.

  2. Step 2

    Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 8-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and set aside to prove for 40 minutes or until the dough doubles in size.

  3. Step 3

    Combine the pineapple, ham and spring onion in a bowl. Season.

  4. Step 4

    Preheat oven to 200C. Punch down dough. Knead until smooth. Roll out to a 42cm x 22cm rectangle. Spread with pizza sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Top with the pineapple mixture, leaving a 2cm border at 1 long side. Starting from the other long side, roll up to form a log. Trim ends. Cut into 24 slices, about 1.5cm thick. Place slices on 2 lined trays, with room for spreading. Insert soaked bamboo skewers into each slice. Spray with oil.

  5. Step 5

    Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 14-15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool slightly.

 

RAINBOW JELLY CUPS

You can not go wrong with the infamous rainbow party jelly cups. Honestly my sister and I have the rainbow jelly cups at every party we put on for our kids and they are super super popular, in fact we always make extra as 1 rainbow jelly cup never seems to be enough!!
TIP: Make your rainbow Jelly cups the day before the party.


Ingredients:
MIN of 4 different flavoured Jelly packs
Rainbow plastic Shot Glasses (Which we sell here at One Stop Kids Party Shop)
1 Pack of snakes (If desired Not compulsory).
Water

Method

  • Chose which colour jelly you are going to have as your first layer and make it up according to the instructions on the pack. Prepare the jelly in a pouring jug for ease later.
  • Once your first jelly is ready pour a small amount of the liquid jelly mix into each shot glass, then place the shot glasses in the fridge to set.
  • Once your first layer is set, make your next layer of jelly according to the packet instructions and then pour a small amount of the next colour on top of your first colour which is now set so the liquid of the next jelly colour will simply sit on top of your first colour it wont mix with it.
  • Place the jelly’s back into the fridge and wait till your second layer has set.
  • Continue this process until you have used all your jelly colours.
  • If you decide to use snakes, cut your snakes in half and when preparing your last layer of jelly put the lolly snake into the liquid jelly of the last layer and put in the fridge to set, the snake will set inside the top layer of the jelly cup.

MARSHMALLOW STICKS 

Marshmallow Sticks are so simple and Easy we just love them, they look pretty and exciting which is the type of food you want to have on your kids party table and they are just so quick to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large pack of Pink & White Marshmallows, (Don’t go for the cheap variety there is a difference spend a dollar more and get the nice branded Marshmallows, after all if you are going to go to this effort make sure you don’t get dried up crunchy Marshmallows which we have noticed some of the cheaper brands are like this).
  • 1 pack of white icing sugar
  • Butter or Margarine
  • 1 pack of 100’s & 1000’s
  • 1 pack of rainbow dots
  • 1 girly mix colours & shapes 100’s & 1000’s
  • These different types of 100’s & 1000’s as seen in the image can all be purchased from Woolworths and Coles, I’m not sure about Aldi I will have a look next time I’m there.
  • 1 pack of cake pop sticks

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl make up your white icing sugar, use mostly butter and a drop of water to make a nice thick icing mixture, only use 1 pinch of water at a time this is very important or you may have to start all over again, you do not want a runny icing mixture you want a nice thick one.
  2. Open your cake pop sticks and marshmallows and push 1 marshmallows on top of each cake pop.
  3. Using a paper plate or normal plate I personally like using paper plates so I have less washing up at the end, open up your first type of sprinkles and spread them out onto your plate.
  4. Divide the Marshmallow sticks up evenly and using your first division of sticks, spread some of the icing mixture on top of each of the marshmallows.
  5. Dip each of the Marshmallow sticks from your first division on top of your first plate of sprinkles, place in a cup or cake pop stand to dry.
  6. Repeat this process  with each of your sprinkle variety’s.
  7. Depending on the theme and colour scheme of your party chose how you are going to present the marshmallow sticks on the table. If you are having a rainbow birthday party then perhaps use 3 or 4 different coloured plastic or paper cups and divide the sticks into each cup, if your having a fairy birthday party you may wish to present the sticks in only purple, pink and white cups for example.

Construction Party Supplies & Ideas

Looking for a Unique, fun, boutique party for your little boy who is 6 and under? Then why  not try a under construction theme party. This is a relatively easy boys party theme to pull off as there is so many great under construction  party theme supplies on the market (We sell the whole range her at One Stop Kids Party Shop just click on this Link Under Construction). You can set up a construction centre in the back yard with a sand pit, diggers, toy trucks, PVC piping off cuts, toy cars, witches hats etc and use our under construction warning tape to cordon off the area really creating that Under Construction party theme come to life. What is great about have a fantastic construction zone for the birthday party is, it is relatively cheap party entertainment idea (especially if you already have a sandpit and toys tonka trucks etc). And if you  do not have sandpit you can get them relatively cheap and it can be a part of your little boys birthday present. You can also lay out some black tarp and dump a pile of rocks and stones surround with toy diggers and trucks and if you have your second construction zone. If you have a door that leads out the to the back yard where the construction play areas are set up then you can use either black and yellow streamers and hang them from the door like a door curtain or use our under construction warning tape and cut it into long strips as we have in the picture below. If budget permits why not purchase each child a  yellow construction hat and dress up construction apron and have each guest get into costume before heading out into the construction play areas. Make sure you get lots of photos before the kids start playing, to make your photo’s extra special ask One Stop Kids Party Shop about our Under Construction Photo Prop as seen in the image below. Please note this is only a snap shot of the great products we have available in our boys party section please check out our website where you can purchase all the under construction party supplies, simply go to the top of this page and click on the Home button.

Parents always worry themselves with party entertainment and seeking outside assistance for a party entertainer in Australia can be very expensive, they come for a hour or hour and half entertain  your guest and leave you $300 or more out of pocket. As a Early Childhood university teacher I know if you create the right area for kids at a children’s birthday party they will use their imagination to do the rest not to mention building on their social skills and learning. A party entertainer can be very overwhelming and confronting for very young children so I personally think a designated well thought out play area/areas for a children’s birthday party is the way to go but it is personal and a lot of factors need to be weighed up.
