  • Mini Pizzas and then make something sweet. My kids loved to ice and decorate Milk Arrowroot biscuits I have done this before at a birthday party it was a big hit I think they ate more of the lollies then decorating the biscuit haha

  • Cupcakes where the children get to decorate them with sprinkles, coconut, lollies, mini marshmallows.

  • Keep it simple – biscuits, cup cakes, or some kind of slice.

  • Mini pizzas are usually a hit. Also sausage rolls, tacos, cupcakes etc.

  • I love all the ideas suggested so far. I was going to suggest mini pizzas on tortillas, and chocolate crackles for dessert.

  • Mini pizzas are a fab idea!! Kids can decorate cupcakes, we make honey joy bars same recipe as honey joys just press into a lined tin and top with melted chocolate after baking. We had a party recently and had mallow pops out marshmallows on a lollipop stick dip in chocolate then dip into your favourite topping like popping candy or hundreds and thousands, kids loved them

  • Pikelets are pretty easy. Have lots of different toppings to add to them. Cupcakes are good too. Especially icing a decorating bit. Then there’s honey joys and what about chocolate crackles? Toasted sandwiches even

  • Maybe pasties and sausage rolls, then some fairy bread, frog in a pond for dessert.

  • Pizza, cupcakes and sugar cookie decorating would definitely be the easiest options. With sugar cookies, you could even pre-make the dough and let them all roll and cut out their own shapes to decorate too.

  • There are some great ideas. Clearly i would be checking on whether they are any food related allergies requirements prior to the party happening. I am thinking Pizza for lunch then make and decorate cupcakes to take home after the party. My daughter really wants a pinata cake for her birthday cake. so we will make this before hand.

  • if needed you could use gluten free flour…

  • Cupcakes and mini pizzas, with the pizza dough make the dough from scratch and they should love it…

  • I ran a cooking party for 3 little girls once, what we did was to make crepes way ahead of time, then let the girls assemble the ingredients to wrap up with crepes by hand, it could be peanut butter, nutella, sugar & lemon, any fruit jams. They even painted on crepes before gobbling them down with giggles aplenty.

  • Mini quiches,sausage rolls and pita pizza are a popular option.

  • Like some others have responded, I’d find out about any particular food allergies of party-goers and then settle for a pizza or cupcake making party … or perhaps you could go for both! It was recently my daughter’s birthday and we made a cake from a kit that came with made up fondant icing. She helped me in making and decorating the cake, but her favourite thing was sculpting things out of the left over fondant icing. With fondant icing already pre-coloured it’s just like play dough and party goers could use it to decorate their own cupcakes.
