Do you know someone who loves to bake? Then a cake decorating party could be a great option for him or her. A cake party can be a great way to celebrate a birthday for the aspiring baker. As an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about ordering a cake!
Planning: When planning cake parties, keep time and space in mind. Make sure you have access to a relatively large kitchen and invite only as many guests as this space will be able to occupy. If too many people are in the kitchen, it will be hard for them to have a really hands-on experience while baking. When deciding the length of the party, keep in mind how much time everything will take. There are different variables that will add more time to your party, so think about what kind of cake you want to make beforehand. Make sure to leave room to enjoy the results of your hard work at the end of the day!
Get ready: A few days before the party, go buy all of the ingredients that you will need. This way, if the store is out of something, you’ll have a few days to find it elsewhere or wait until they get it in stock. You should also make sure you have enough kitchen supplies, like spoons, bowls, etc. If you don’t, buy some cheap plastic ones or borrow them from friends!
Food: Of course, at a cake birthday party, there will be cake! You can make one large cake or have guests make small, individual cakes or cupcakes made from their favorite flavor of cake that they can decorate themselves. If you want to serve other food as well, make-your-own pizza can be another fun activity for guests.
Favors: Aprons can be great cake party favors. You can either buy some colorful ones before the party and give them to each guest as they walk in or have a pre-baking apron decorating activity with fabric markers. This way, each guest will have a personalized souvenir to take home with them and they won’t get their clothes dirty during the party!
Cake decorating parties are a lot of fun and a very hands-on experience, so rest up beforehand! Get organized well before the party and be sure to have everything you need a few days before the day of the event.
