Here are my favorite party tips.
a) Do as much as you can ahead of time, including the cake. An ice cream cake is perfect because you can assemble it up to a week ahead, wrap it tightly, frost the day before the party, then decorate the day of the party. And of course if you put the ice cream in the cake, you don’t have to worry about serving it alongside the cake.
b) Let the kids do the decorating. I’ve never met anyone under 12 who didn’t love decorating, and it lets you deal with other things. If the party is small, they can decorate the whole cake. For a larger crowd, put out a bunch of plain cupcakes and let people go to town with various frostings and decorations.
c) If your kids are older or if the party is for an adult, build the theme around a color or a color palette. It may sound overly simple, but give it a try. Using color is a sure fire way to ignite your creativity. For this cake, I used photo on the bottom right corner of Pillsbury’s little Baking Palette Inspiration Board.
Good luck with the giveaway! I’m looking forward to your party tips. UPDATE: Congrats to Theresa D for winning the giveaway. It is now closed.
