Last weekend was a special one for us, it was our lil ones 5 th birthday party. I have been busy planning the party and organising it and finally I can relax now...its all over and it was a great party indeed. Throwing a birthday party is not that easy but with little pre planning anyone can throw a great party without any stress. This time we also got to fix all the mistakes we made last year which helped us in successfully executing this one. I am so happy that all the kids who came for the party had a great Magical experience with the Magician and great fun with the instant balloons she twisted upon their request :)
It was basically a kiddie party with full focus on kids. All the party food for kids were almost the standard party menu which we see in kids parties here and it involves no cooking :) So everything was bought readymade and it made my job easier. Here is the list of food I served for kids
There was an adult platter for parents too ...
Mozerella and Spinch Pizza
And about the cake, it was red velvet cake with Cream cheese frosting and I am so glad I finally got a bit of red colour this colour this time, I always had trouble getting the colour, as none of the colours worked. I also wanted a Natural colour since adding artificial one is a strict no to me. This time also when the came came out of the oven I didnt see the red colour outside so I was a bit disappointed and I even told my friends about the disaster, but the next day when I cut the cake for levelling and decoration, voila there was this red colour inside !!
After lots of thinking and confusion finally my boy said he wanted a Ben 10 cake for his party. Eventhough I tried to convince him that making a Ben 10 quite a lot of work, he insisted that he wanted Ben 10, So I had no choice other than making one. This time I decided to do a fondant cut out for Ben 10 rather than making a figurine, I could have easily bought Ben 10's edible picture from shops but I wanted to take this as a challenge and I thought incase if I screw this up I can always order one edible picture from our cake shop nearby :) But I was quite happy with the way it came out and he loved it.
