1st birthday – Food

29 Jul 2013|

Party Food

I decided that as it was the first, first birthday party I have hosted, I would try and make all the food and baked goodies myself (with the help of trusted Gogo and the exception of the macaroons and balloon biscuits). And I am so glad and so proud of myself that I did! We spent a full day in the kitchen preparing and cooking and baking – but it was so worth it!

I made a range of savoury and sweet items for both adults and kiddies.

Adults: cheese and biscuits, crudite vegetables and dip, assorted sandwiches, cheese muffins, fruit skewers, cheesecake, chocolate crunchies, macaroons and cupcakes.

Kiddies: fruit and vegetable platter, biscuits, marshmallows, jelly babies, cupcakes, ice lollies, jelly, chips.

And one big, colourful, rainbow birthday cake.
