UP Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

We have had so many amazing submissions hit our inbox lately, but this rainbow party brightened up our day! Jacki at Blissfully Sweet Cakes created this party for her son Ben’s birthday. Ben loves balloons. Always has. When he saw the Disney movie UP, he was hooked. Ben’s party was going to be a small family affair so Jacki decided to make a faux house cake (how amazing is that)?  Look at the edible rainbow hot air balloon on top!  Jacki brought in the UP rainbow balloon design for the real cake.  The rainbow cake is a big trend this year. Here is another great one that we featured. We love the use of the small rainbow fondant chip design on the cake.  You can also see those used on the amazing balloon cookie pops.Other sweet treats included cupcake ice cream cones, 7 layer jello cups, vanilla whoopie pies filled with speckled buttercream, mixed vibrant macarons, and confetti brownies. We love the rainbow crepe swag at the top of the table.  It is so simple to create, but it makes a great visual impact. The kids took home balloon-topped treat boxes filled with smarties, rainbow mentos, musk sticks, gumballs, a packet of rainbow coloured pencils with the balloon bunch cookies.

    Love, love, love your table. It is so beautiful with all of the colors. Can you give me a quick note on how you did the ice cream cupcakes? They are adorable!!!

    • Jacki Fanto @ Blissfully Sweet

      Hi. The ice-cream cone cupcakes are really easy. I used the usual icecream cones and the used the same coloured batter that I used for the rainbow cake. I put maybe 3/4 teaspoon of each colour into the cone. Do not overfill! Batter should only come up half way. Then I microwaved them! It only took 80 seconds each one ( each oven may vary). Then allow them to cool and then use your frosting of choice. Mine was marshmallow, you could also use buttercream! Too easy! Have fun! :)

      • Jo-Ann with Fine Frostings

        Thank you!!! Microwave – I would have never thought! Fantastic idea!!! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly Jacki. My event is on Tuesday so I will be putting these on the menu. Now I am really excited! Woot Woot!
