We had a combined birthday party and christmas drinks party at the weekend. For children’s birthday parties we normally organise some kind of treasure hunt and/or parcours outside but as it is December and somewhat chilly we had to think of more inside activities instead. After the usual handful of traditional party games (pass the parcel and variations of musical statues) I wanted a calmer activity for them to do before devouring the cake.
I made a couple of cupcakes per child and a whole batch of biscuits and prepared three different coloured icings and a whole series of toppings. The children could then choose what colour icing to put on their cake and which toppings.The cupcake toppers came with the paper cases but you could make your own by printing a suitable image onto sticker paper and sticking them to a cocktail stick (like I did for these cakes).
