Posted on August 4, 2015 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (0)

August is Summer Birthday Month here at Party Cake and if you have a Summer Birthday coming up and are not sure what to do...we have the ideas for you!

FROZEN


1. Easy Snowball Treats

These are easy....just take powdered donut holes and stick them on pretty forks...perfect treats for your frozen fans.


2. Elsie Icicles

This will take a little melting...You will need blue Jolly rancher hard candy. Place all candy into double boiler and stir until melted then pour very hot candy onto wax paper and let cool. Be sure candy is flat while drying. Then break apart into icicle shapes.



3. Olaf Stuffy

Here is a fun keepsake for your Frozen fan...You will need pillow stuffing (found at your local craft store) Black pipe cleaners, Black pom poms, Google eys, Black, white and orange construction pape. Shape stuffing into three sections bottom middle and head. Then shape smaller round balls for the feet. Glue together middle, bottom and feet so it will stand alone. Shape pipe cleaners to make arms and hands. Glue poms and pipe cleaners to base. Cut out mouth, tooth and nose and glue face and eyes to head. Add pipe cleaners for eyes and hair. A decorative mat can be made by using snow cover found usually at Christmas time for decorations.


MINIONS - Despicable Me


1. Minion Cake

Using Fondant:

yellow, black, silver and pink fondant for this one. Easy if your good with fondant.

Using Frosting:

Color yellow for base, silver for eyes and black for mouth. Glue with frosting 3"black ribbon around cake for the strap. Eyes: silver first then white then black.


2. Minion Bubbles

 These are fun...for your minion fan. Here is what you need:

Yellow, medium sized bottles of bubbles. (found at your local craft or party store)  Blue duct tape, Googly eyes, Hot glue gun and glue sticks Black, Silver and Red Sharpie

 

The first step to make your Minion Bubble Party Favors is to remove the wrapper from the bottles. Most of our wrappers came off pretty easy, but a few had some stubborn glue. Then wrap the bottom part of the bottle in blue duct tape. Depending on what size your bottle is, will determine how tall you want the “pants” to be. Since duct tape is SO STICKY, I literally wrapped the tape around and then cut it so the tape barely overlapped. Glue the eyes on then decorate with sharpies. Silver around the eyes and black for the hair straps and mouth. Red for a tounge here and there. Let the bubble fun begin!


3. Quick silver decoration

Here is what you need: Google eyes, washers (found at your local harware store) Yellow paper and black shiney paper (found at your local craft store in the scapbooking section) Glue, blue napkins and yellow silverware. Glue washer to goole eye. Cut yellow and black paper into strips. Yellow should be about 1 inch and black should be 1/4 inch. Glue black strip onto yellow. Glue eye for the center. Wrap blue napkin around yellow silverware. Wrap paper strip around napkin and glue eye to paper strip. Fun and easy.



HELLO KITTY


1. Hello Kitty Treats

 

These are easy and fun. Make Rice Crispie Treats (recipe found on Rice Crispee Box) Cut out using circle cutter. Cut out triangle for ears. Glue on using frosting. Add two red mini M&M's for the bow and mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose.


2. Treat cones

Pink and white colored paper. Wrap in cone shape and stick into foam board in a hello kitty tray covered with popped corn cereal.


3 Hello Kitty treat bags

.

All of this is paper cut out onto white gift bags (found at your local party store) These are easy to make and will save you money. With a little planning and some glue they will go together in no time.


 






4th of July

Posted on June 30, 2015 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

We are coming upon the 4th of July and Party Cake has some great easy and quick ideas for your celebration.


1. Ribbon Shakers

For fun for the parade, picnic and at even the fireworks that night try these easy ribbon shakers. Here's what you need. Duct tape, large dowel and different sizes and texture ribbon. (cloth ribbon, curling ribbon, wide foil ribbon etc.) You can find a wide selection at your local craft store be creative. Cut the ribbon all the same length and lay out on top of one another. Tape your dowel to the ribbon. Then fold and tape all around the dowel. Be sure you tape just below the bottom of the ribbon. Then shake in the fourth. These look great in a vase with red, white and blue candy as your centerpiece...really cute.



2. Crispy Treats

These treats are easy and fun for the whole family. Make your rice crispie square recipe (The recipe can be found on the rice crispie box)

Stars: Cut out the stars with star cookie cutter. Gently push each star onto a lollipop stick (Pop sticks are sold in packages at your local craft store) Pipe white frosting on each star in lines and cover with red and blue sprinkles. yummo

Firecrackers: Roll the rice crispie treats into large cylinder. Cut out same size cyliners for base. Melt chocolate wafers (found in many different colors and flavors at your local craft store) Chocolate dip top of each cyliner. Cover with red, white and blue spinkles and stick a licorice piece for the top. I added a star garland as well found at my local dollar store.

3. Zip Tie Fireworks

A great decoration that can be hung or placed on the table. Here's what you will need...Multi-color zip ties and multi-lengths. Try to choose as many colors and as many different lengths as you can to make a colorful visual display. Start with a white or clear zip tie and make a ring. Then add your ties to the ring as about an inch apart. Fun and easy to make. The more you make the prettier your display.



4. Water Bottle decoration

Here is an easy way to decorate for your next 4th of July party. just take the lable off of your water bottles and replace them with small flags.(flags are sold just about everywhere this time of year but you can get a wide variety of sizes at your local craft store) Plastic flags or cloth flags work the best. You can also use large ribbon but I would not recommend printing the pattern because it will not hold up to the water.


5. Denim Pocket Decoration

Here's a cute way to hold your silverware for your next 4th of July party. Just cut the denim pockets off of an old pair of jeans and you have an instant decoration that your guests can grab and talk about all day. (If you need to get your hands on more than one pair of old jeans try your local thrift store)


6. Star Gazing

This is a quick and easy decoration for your lawn. Here is what you need....Star stencil, sifter and flour. Take your star stencil (you can make one out of cardboard or you can find them already made at your local craft store.) place down randomly on your grass. Sift the flour over your stencil until all the star is white. This idea is biodegradable and safe and will wash away in the next rain or with garden hose to make for easy clean up. Make the stars come out in the bright of the day for your 4th.


7. Lantern Flower Holder



Here is an easy trick that will light your 4th of July night. Just place a small red, white and blue lantern (found at your local craft store) over a small vase and fill vase with flowers.(If you don't have a vase you can use wet foam and plastic wrap) Place under water lights in vase to light up your night. These are small so use more than three to make an impact.


8. Stuffed Red,white and Blue Strawberries


This idea with really be loved by all. They will pop in your guests mouths fast so be sure to make enough. First make your filling by mixing one 8oz package of cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar. Then cut a cross in the top of the strawberry. spread enough to be able to fill with cream cheese mixture. Fill each strawberry and top with spray whip cream and one blueberry. Serve chilled.

For the Fishing Dad...make your cupcakes then frost with blue frosting add pretzel and goldfish. Lastly pipe white line from end of pretzel to goldfish. so fun.

2. Candy Message...Every dad loves candy and what a wonderful way to present Dad's card this year.

4. Candy Bouquet - Here is a great alternative to flowers. Follow the directions for an easy candy bouquet that Dad will love.

.

 


5 Hershey Bar cards...Easy to do by using colored and patterned paper. Fold paper into a sleeve shape cut slit in top and fold coller down. They cut out tie shape. Glue tie shape onto front along with special message. Slip hershey bar in sleeve and just like that you have a special card or favor. If doing this with a young child try having them color the paper sleeve before gluing the tie on. This will color the shirt. Then you can use a plain paper tie.
