Every parent knows the feeling - it's your child's birthday and you have to entertain a horde of junk food crazed children - and top whatever shindig you threw last year, as well as all of the other parties your son or daughter has recently attended. It's easy when your daughter turns four, and you can hire a Minnie Mouse lookalike, put out some fingerpaints, and serve cookies. Not so easy when the same daughter is now 11, and that in-between age where birthday parties are so crucial in the pre-teen social circles. And when that daughter turns 16 - welcome to what-do-we-do-with-them-all-at-this-party. Cue the Knockout Cakes! touch! Just last week I packed up all of the most fun cakey materials I have, including tons of different colored fondant, glitter, icing paper, piping bags, molds, and lots of neat little decorations and eight blank canvas cakes. I set up at a sixth grade girl's birthday party, complete with parchment paper table coverings, turntables, rolling pins, and a chef's hat with the birthday girl's name on it. I asked the girls, many of whom have seen Cake Boss, what they knew about cake, who was their favorite character, flavor, etc. and then gave a demo of the materials. Then we got to work - and the girls were totally engrossed for over an hour and a half. We ended up with some really awesome cakes - a Shrek and donkey cave, a soccer cake, a neon flowers cake, an old school Cake Boss-y cake, and more. Then the girls all worked to create a Justin Bieber birthday cake for them to put candles in, sing around, and cut into for the birthday celebration. The little cakes went home with each girl. Included in the service was clean up and take down. Ask me about doing your next party - these could be so much fun for any age. "Mini class" parties with any age group, as a bridesmaids activity, and even cupcake decorating stations at weddings would be fabulous.
