  • Jelly cups, fairy bread, party pies and sausage rolls, cheerios, and some chips and lollies is what I usually put out for parties :-) oh and a cheese platter with kabana ect… For the adults :-)


  • great ideas, red frankfurts for the kidies!


  • I have say Chocolate Crackles! I loved them when I was a kid and I still love them. They’re easy to make – in fact, you could get the kids to make them!


  • Cupcakes with white icing dipped in jelly crystals, they look awesome!
    Chocolate spiders with peanut butter, chocolate and change noodles


  • Home made mini quiches and sausage rolls are always a favourite.


  • Whatever you make, make it into mini size or bite size.
    People love itty bitty pieces.
    Things that are easy and look gorgeous little :- meatballs,sausage rolls, layer sandwiches (crusts off) If you bake, slices are pretty easy and can be cut into little pieces, meringues tiny are adorable.


  • easy chicken sausage rolls….

    1 pack chicken mince (i think its 500g from woollworths)
    1 squeezy herb mix from the fruit and veg section … thai mix
    1 spoon crushed garlic
    1 cup frozen corn kernals
    puff pastry
    milk for on top

    mix the chicken and garlic and thai mix and corn together…. you can at this point add grated carrot/ spring onion or anything else you like. spoon onto one edge of the pastry, then roll over to half way so it forms a long roll. cut to desired amount and continue until you finish the mix. brush the top of the sausage rolls with milk. put it into a 180 deg oven and cook until browned. serve with sweet chilli sauce….

    alternativly you could do the mince with an egg and forgo the pastry… making meatballs instead xxxx


  • no answer from me but thanks for asking and to mums who have answered


  • Kmart sells chocolate fountains for only $12 these days, skewers of fruit and marshmallows is so popular with adults and kids alike


  • Fairy bread, cut out in a shape that matches theme with cookie cutter and you can use coloured sugar rather then hundreds and thousands
    Tiny teddys in Milky Way cars
    Tea cup and saucers, use tic toc biscuits, marshmallows, musks and freckles
    Jelly slice
    Coconut ice in a colour that you like
    Frog in a pond, freddo in cup of jelly


  • I love making home made sausage rolls. They are always a bit hit with the adults and the kids!


  • I’d highly recommend a cob loaf, a cheese and bacon one with a bit of onion really hits the spot. I’ve yet to have a party where there is any cob left!


  • Celebration cornet cake
    Add “Celebration cornet cake” to FavouritesAdd to Favourites
    These cup coronet cupcakes are baked in ice cream cones – like magic!
    Ingredients
    1 egg
    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    2 tbsp milk
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    12 fresh raspberries
    60g/2oz self-raising flour
    1 tbsp caster sugar
    3 flat-bottomed ice cream cones
    Preparation method
    Wash your hands and put on an apron. Weigh and measure all the ingredients. Ask a grown-up to preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 5.
    Break the egg gently into a cup. Then separate the egg by making a claw shape with one hand and hold it over a bowl. Then pour the whole egg into your hand and catch the yolk, letting the white drip down into the bowl. (You can put the yolk aside for another recipe.)
    Whisk the egg white with a fork to make some bubbles. Add the oil and milk and mix again. Add the vanilla extract.
    Take six raspberries and put them to one side. Put the remaining raspberries into the egg white mixture – you can crush them a little to make the mixture go pink.
    In another mixing bowl, stir together the self-raising flour and sugar.
    Tip the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir until completely mixed. The mixture will be quite wet.
    Put the ice cream cones into a 500g loaf tin so they stand up straight. Add a raspberry to the bottom of each cornet. Divide the cake batter equally among the ice cream cones using two spoons – one to scoop it up and one to push it in. Now add one raspberry on the top of each as decoration. Ask a grown-up to put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool. Serve the cakes with extra fresh raspberries.


  • The 4 Ingredients series of cook books are great for things like this and sometimes it is not only the food, but the way you present it that makes it that bit more special.
    Mini Voluvonts are great and you can do all different fillings and they can be prepared in advance and just heated when needed.
    Pinwheels made with puff pastry spread with a variety of fillings and then rolled up and cut in slices before cooking. You can also do these as twists by cutting the pastry in strips twisting and then sprinkling with finely grated hard cheeses and poppy or sesame seeds.


  • Raspberry and Brie triangles.
    Roll up a slice of Brie with a couple of raspberries, small sprinkle of sugar in filo pastry then bake. Yum
