Are you planning a birthday party for your children this summer? Here’s some tips from Elle Mat & Vin to make a successful and fabulous celebration for your kids!
Go Crazy Like a Monkey
Make a cake look like a monkey by cutting the edges to shape its ears. Garnish it with chocolate mousse and make the eyes and mouth out of chocolate drops and melted chocolate.
Pop it Up with Homemade Popsicles
Go all in with homemade popsicles made out of fresh fruit and berries. Mix two flavours together for the best taste! You can make your popsicles out of lemonade as well, but it won’t be the same exact result as if you do them all from scratch. Don’t be afraid to use some spices as well. Mint and ginger are perfect for adding the little extra to your popsicles.
Cater to Them Like a Caterpillar
Fruit is like candy, at least when you do something fun with it. Make caterpillars out of grapes by using grilling sticks and pin the grapes in a long row. Use white and dark chocolate for the eyes and put them on the caterpillar’s “head”.
When you’re already on the healthy track, here’s a semi-healthy tip, banana lollipops. Cut the bananas into halves and pin them on ice cream sticks. Put them in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes before serving them, and dip them in melted chocolate. Let the kids garnish them with whatever they want to, for example with marshmallows and coco flakes.
