Party Recap

Backyard carnival games for my daughter and her friends! Fun games, prizes, face painting, tattoos, and desserts! I like to be creative and find what I can at the dollar store, and make decor when I can, rather than buy decorations.

    This is smart. I may just steal this idea as I have a Sonic & Yoshi Carnival for my son's 6th birthday in March. LOVE the cupcakes. Did you make those? Fantastic!! Great job on this party!

    I don't have a recipe, my friend made them and what she did was layer cake dyed pink and blue with tinted mousse. And topped with whipped topping. They were a big hit!

    Thank you so much! My best friend, who helps me with all of my parties, is a cake designer and she made the cupcakes! The little shot cups are just layered cake and mousse, topped with whipped topping! We make some version of those at almost every party, for some reason the little shot cups are always a big hit!

    I totally have to know how you made those cupcakes!!! The sundae ones I can figure out. I can even imagine how the popcorn was made but the hamburgers are killing me!!! I do a huge harvest festival at church in the fall and this year we are doing a big country carnival!! Those would be perfect!!!

    nilla wafers, york peppermint patties, and vanilla frosting tinted yellow and red. Brushed a little corn syrup on the top of nilla wafer and sprinkled sesame seeds. So easy!

    Looks like the "burgers" are a white cupcake topped with coarse sugar before baking, split. Green frosting on the bottom, chocolate donut gem for the burger, yellow frosting, and strawberry slices.

    How did you make the popcorn cupcakes look so real? We are hosting a baby shower with the theme, 'Alison is ready to Pop!". These would be a cute addition to our dessert table! Do you have any food or other suggestions for a baby shower with this theme? I'm a real rookie when it comes to hostessing parties and can use all the help I can get! Oh, where did you get the cute cupcake sleeves for the popcorn cupcakes? Thank you for your help. :-)

    A question on this game. I'm planning a party for my daughter next week, but the thought of 9 year olds with actual darts frightens me. Did you use actual darts or something else?
