As seen on Debi Lilly TV:
I’m Debi Lilly. We’re throwing an all-star sports birthday today. One of the big focal points of any party, no matter what the theme, is the cake.
Today instead of just one birthday cake, we’ve set a whole sweets table which is a very big trend for kid’s parties, or any kind of party. It’s very easy to take items right from the bakery, or from your favorite grocery, but customize them and make them work with your theme easily.
We took a Styrofoam cone and with icing, right from the cake isle at the grocery, we iced on little mini white-powdered sugar donuts to create a big fun topiary or cone. We have a cute little sports rubber ducky right on top. That’s a great focal point on our table.
We have a couple of cakes here that we’ve customized, one in chocolate, one in vanilla. We’ve taken two different sizes of cakes, a large and a small. We’ve put them on top of each other, and then we added all kinds of fun kid sweets and treats like donuts, little mini donuts, whoppers, and m&ms.
These are new birthday cake Oreos which we sliced off, so you can see the colorful confetti icing, and stuck them right to the cake. This just took a few minutes. It really is going to be a very fun detail that the kids love.
We did the same to grocery, bakery cupcakes. We added little tiny Oreo cookie or little rolos. We put in fun little themed cupcake toppers, which are available to download right on our website. These toppers have jerseys with number one, but yet they say number 9, the age of the birthday boy. We added the birthday boy’s name to the back of all the jerseys.
All of these things you can print off right from our website for free. You can tape them to the top of a toothpick. You can top them on to your brownies, onto your cupcakes, and it instantly makes everything very thoughtful and very personal, and also really dresses up something that’s affordable, but you can do it quickly.
