Baking Birthday Party: Baking party ideas for kids, or a great activity for a day full of fun! Sprinkles, frosting, cupcakes, aprons, chef hats and so much more!
I had a little girl with a clean slate for this party. Talk about endless options, and FUN!
After asking a few questions, the birthday girl picked a baking theme for her 7th birthday party. When she saw a cupcake party elsewhere, she knew it was what she wanted, but of course we had to add a little “Fantabulous,” inspiration! Since “baking,” was the theme, I made sure to LOAD the table with sweets. Sorry Mom’s!
Baking Birthday Party
I made a cupcake garland with a mixture of color coordinating liners, and used yarn to string it all together. Super easy!
Since Oreo’s are a cookie favorite, I simply covered the Oreo’s in white chocolate and decorated them with party colors! You can put food coloring in the white chocolate instead, to match the color scheme if you like!
And who doesn’t love powdered donuts?
I filled the plastic milk bottles up with blue, pink, and green juice… and just a heads up… I didn’t buy enough blue. The girls LOVED the blue.
One of my party favorites: cover half of a Rice Krispy treat with colored white chocolate. Very elegant, and super easy!
Push Pop Containers are very popular right now, and I decided to fill them with cotton candy for a little extra sugar.
I used a Styrofoam block in the green basket to hold the containers, and simply covered the ugly Styrofoam with cotton candy to hide it!
I had rock candy, left over from a previous party, so since it matched, I found a place for it.
Oh why not? Blow pops matched our color scheme too. Same thing as the push pop containers; cover the styrofoam with cotton candy!
Another simple treat are the marshmallow pops. I used red food coloring to create a pink color in white chocolate, and covered half of the marshmallows, and put ’em on a stick! Once again, I had blue sixlets left over from a previous party, and they matched perfectly!
Before the party, the chef hats were personalized with each of the guests names by using letter stickers. I also purchased flower embellishments to stick on the hats, and I’m so glad I did. Totally made the hats, I think!
We decided to add an activity to the party, by adding an apron decorating station. I was very lucky, and found tons of “baking,” themed embellishments. They didn’t stick to the aprons the best… but the girls sure did have fun making a custom apron. I would suggest finding a plan B for attaching items to a fabric apron if you go this route.
After decorating the aprons, it was time to decorate cupcakes and cookies! Each girl received a bowl of white frosting, with a plastic knife for spreading.
It was a beautiful September day, so having the cupcake and cookie decorating station outside was a must! We were able to find filtration paper (But can use a paper roll like this one here) to use as the runner, and used matching duck tape to hold it to the porch. I also ran across place mats that were the perfect colors, and decided to use to give each guest a designated place setting.
We used muffin tins to hold the decorating goods, such as: sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate chips, etc.
We sent each guest home with a cupcake box to hold their cupcakes, and a small box to hold their cookies.
Baking Birthday Party Invitations:
I decided to do something a little creative for an invitation, rather than a typical postcard invite. I purchased mini rolling pins, and printed off my own invite on to scrapbook paper, and rolled the invite around the rolling pin. The birthday girl hand delivered each invitation! I have to say… each guest that was invited, came to the party. That’s a first!
The guests were welcomed to the birthday party with a cupcake flag to set the mood!
The birthday girl was VERY happy, and that my friends… is ALL that matters!
