Choosing Desserts & Lollies for Your Kid’s Birthday Party

If your kid’s birthday party is just around the corner, then you must be thinking about organizing a party. However, most people say that the most difficult part of organising a party is to organize a dessert table. People find it very confusing to choose the right cakes, treats, lollies and other such delicious candies. The dessert table is the masterpiece of the party and therefore, it definitely needs to be unique an appealing.

If you have no idea of what to put on the dessert table, here are a few tips for you:

  • Think about how many guests you are going to invite and then think about how many dishes you will make for the dessert table. Never overdo everything or your table will look messy and tacky. Just go with a few delicacies that you know you are capable of making and then make a beautiful cake that will stand out at the dessert table. There is no point in making dozens of desserts because there will be savory items as well and people will not each that much dessert.
  • If the party is in two or three days then don’t wait for the big day to arrive. Otherwise, you will not be able to manage everything. You should make as many desserts as you can in advance. It will keep pressure off you and you will even be able to enjoy the big day instead of spending the entire day wrapped up in the kitchen. There are many things that can be frozen or refrigerated for up to a week to make those items in advance. For example, you can make lollies and trifles beforehand.
  • If you are a working mother, then there is no point in trying to do everything by yourself. You should explore the option of buying a few things from the stores. For example, making lollies is a pretty lengthy and difficult process and you will not even be able to make very good candies and lollies. Therefore, it is better if you place a store bought candy on the table.
  • Use one thing and use it in different ways. For example, if you have a box of cake mix, you can use it to make cake pops and you can also use it as a base for your trifle shots or mousses. You can even use the same cake mix for different trifles with different toppings as well.
  • Don’t place everything on dishes and trays. Instead, think out of the box and make use of differently shaped utensils as well. For example, the lollies and candies can go into the jars, the cake can be placed on a stand and the cupcakes can be arranged neatly in a tray.
  • Instead of buying a tablecloth, choose a piece of fabric that you already have in your house and that will look great on a table. It will make your table look unique and attractive. Pay special attention to the wall behind the dessert table because the wall will appear in photos and it will give you very good photo background.

Get your cake made by a professional. Even if you think that you can make good cakes, it is better if someone else makes it. This is because you will already be making a lot of other things. If you share the responsibility with someone else, things may turn out to be more delicious.
