All the weeks of brainstorming, nites of slaving - planning and making templates - cutting, gluing, putting all the things together and very little sleep when nearing the date to make all the dessert for the dessert table were finally paid off after I finished setting up the Pirate Theme Dessert Table and taking the picture at the party!! *Big Huge Grin of Satisfaction** Ahhhhh... totally worth it!! Especially when the birthday boy and his family and friends likes it so much!! hehe..Anyway, let me take you through to the details of my dessert table!!
The Theme was "Pirate Party". The main colour themed that my customer and I had agreed upon was: Black, Red, Baby Blue & White. So everything was pretty much designed based on these colours. We decided to have a Pirate Ship Cake (more detailed pictures on my previous entry). Flavour was Rich Coffee Cake coated with Cappucino Buttercream Frosting!
I did two designs for the cupcakes, the first one was obviously the cute 'young pirate face' , how can I not do this!! sooo Adorable!! "Ayeee Captain"... (*giggles*)
For the second design of the cupcakes, I decided to use the cupcake wrapper and the flag & skeleton paper toper (custom made). Totally loving these cute design!
These cute mini treasure chest box was filled with Gold Chocolate Coins. I used it as part of the table decor and also as the 'Prized' for the games!
I was so thrilled when I stumbled upon this 'ship looking' plastic flower container in my local craft shop as this was just "Perfect" for this and I decided to use it for the marshmallow pops base!! Luv it luv it lurveee it!!! :P
Cant have a Pirate Theme party without some 'Treasures of the Sea' Right?? Gold Chocolate Coins and Copper Chocolate Coins inside the Cookie Jar!
and some Chocolate Oreos in the other Cookie Jar!
I did these simple Chocolate Truffles as part of the dessert table! These were so yummy I reckoned! :)
The initial plan was to make a 'bakerella' inspired pirate face Cake POPs.. but I was running out of time for this and they were quite hard to make (need a lot more practice i guess) so in the end, we're both happy to settle for this! Maybe next time when I have enough practice time :P
Just for sharing purpose, this was the sample that I did for the "Pirate Face Cake Pops", not so good I guess as I made it late at night and in a hurry! Its not very neat as I used a white chocolate instead of candy melt!
Made these mini flag tag for the straws.. just thought it goes so well and so whimsical!!
Some of the other photos of the cake pops that I did.. just a simple chocolate coated with sugar pearls!
Heres some pictures of the wonderful party!! Some creative games the mom organised includes "treasure hunts", "walk the plank", "Pin the pirate's patch", some colouring activities etc. Both myself and my son attended it and were so happy to be part of this wonderfuly organised themed party. Once again, it was nice working with you Jova!! :))
