Real Festa: Fire Truck and Stars Birthday Party

Another Festa to share:
This time we celebrated Tomas 3rd birthday with a Fire Truck and Stars Theme party. The big event took place in a local Fire Station. We had the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the Station, a presentation of how the fire men get ready for a call. The kids climbed the trucks and spent some time with the braves firemen. It was fun for the kids and for the parents, too.

I created a dessert table inspired in a vintage fire truck and stars. I included cupcakes, chocolate cake, cups of fruit, cookies on a stick and some candies all using the matching colors: red, beige and brown.
The guest tables where decorated with some wooden cars holding balloons on paper stars .

Congratutalions to Tomas' parents, Fernanda and Josh. The party was fun fun. Good job.

Real Festa: Elmo's birthday Party

A good friend of mine, AnaLya, asked me for a dessert table for her son Nicolas's 2nd birthday celebration.
It was a great party. Kids had a blast. They enjoyed jumping in the bouncy castle, decorating cookies, playing games and enjoyed the puppet show.
Congratulations AnaLya and Nicolas, the celebrations was great and of course, thank you for letting Festa be part of it.

I chose red and aqua colors to match the "Elmo" theme and style a small table with some treats: small cake for the candle, cupcakes, krispies, m&m's and pretzels.

Vanilla Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

Cake balls

I have been making tons of cake balls for different events and I have heard many times, what is a cake ball? For those who haven't had the change to taste one, you are missing something!

Cake balls are bite-size bits of moist cake blended with frosting and cover with candy melt or chocolate bark. It is a twist on cupcakes and an excellent alternative for a dessert. They are beautiful, they are delicious, they are just IN. You can make them in different flavors, shapes, colors and designs. They look pretty, but they taste better!
