Donut Birthday Bash
This is what Shaa’ista shared about the party- “My first born turned 5 recently (oh why do they grow so fast). We had a small party at home for him and his bestie this year. This boy loves his donuts, and that’s the theme he chose. A quick internet search and you’ll notice that this seems a theme reserved for girls only, so of course I was up to the challenge of creating a donut themed party appropriate for a little man. I settled on a monochrome color scheme and created a donut clipart that I used through the decor.
Since my sister, the family baker, has left us for a year long adventure in Singapore (sign), I had to think up the easiest cake idea i could come up with. I added a little decor to a pile of donuts and it was good enough to be called a cake.
Not only does this guy love eating donuts (and anything else with sprinkles and icing), he loves baking too. We got the Mini Donut people come over to make donuts for the guests (and that was dessert sorted out for everyone). Yusuf had this plan in his head of how he would ‘sell’ the donuts to the kids, and that’s when the idea popped into my head of making him a little donut shop. I gave each child a golden chocolate coin and they lined up at the donut shop to ‘buy’ their box of mini donuts.
We turned the box of donuts into an activity for the kids where they decorated their donuts with everything from sprinkles to marshmallows and gumballs. And they took these home as the party favor too (easy peezy u see).
According to Yusuf and his friends, a party should always have a piñata. I was in a bit of a pickle then as to where I would find a monochrome donut piñata?? So i bought a large cardboard cake box and made this one. His friend Niamh’s dad is Mexican and is always in charge of piñata time, he makes it soo fun.
Yusuf’s already requested a popcorn party for next year! Wish me luck!”
