For our theme food we had.
Buzz Lightyear Galactic Alliance Punch Slinky's Puppy Chow
This is my "go to" punch for all the kids parties.
We don't ever have soda in the house but we
make an exception for birthdays. Depending on
the theme and color scheme I pick my Sherbet
flavor. Then I add frozen fruit, Squirt, and
sometimes some fruit juice. No measurements,
no recipe. It always tastes great. For Buzz's punch
I used lime Sherbet, Squirt, frozen green grapes,
Mr Potato SkinsStinky Pete's Wagon Wheels
Aka fried green tomatoes Woody's Cowboy Dip
This isn't traditional cowboy dip.
That's just what I decided to call
it. This is one one of my
you read the recipe for my
Kitschy Quesadillas you follow
the directions for roasting the
veggies and then boiling them
in the salsa. From there you just
add shredded cheese and serve.
Critter food with Cowgirl Ranch
"Ham" and Cheese Platter
Rex's Carnivore Platter
This was just marinaded chicken
wrapped in bacon and grilled. It was
full at one point.
And one of my favorite items at the party, "Death by Monkey"
These were based on the toy barrel of monkeys and were
filled with mini red M&M's
Filled cookies are my new favorite things in the world. I was inspired by this video for how to make "Pinata Cookies" I used the same recipe for the dough. I cut two discs for the ends, and then a dough nut shape for the middle and used frosting to fuse the three cookies together. They came out a bit messy, because I was experimenting with techniques as I was making them but I feel pretty good going from here. The idea of filled cookies is so exciting to me. Candy corn filled pumpkin cookies, doesn't that sound fun?
You pick out a page from a coloring book, or print something offline. Place a piece of wax paper over it and make a batch of butter cream frosting. If you usually use my butter cream recipes, add a couple more cups of sugar to it for this project. Write out a list of how many colors you need and separate your frosting in to that many bowls. Now dye your frosting how ever your chose, food dye or concentrate, or any other method you use for frosting. Mix the dye in to each bowl and starting with the outline, trace your picture. *Tip, you may want to put this on a piece of cardboard so that it can be moved around easily once it's done. Next color in all the details. The last step is to color the background colors and fill in the big spaces.
Now let it dry. I put mine in the fridge over night. When you are ready, you simply flip it on top of you cake and there you go. Don't you love Pinterest?
Lat but not least, there were the toys. We had arm men all over the house and our table. We had Mr Potato Head on our mantel and a rescue mission on our window ledge. All in all our Toy Story party was a success and a whole lot of fun. Next year Eve said she is going to want a "Brave" party. That should be fun.
