Kid Hack: Birthday Party Cupcakes and Ice Cream

Written by mom - One Comment

One of the most hectic times during a birthday party is when it’s time to serve the cake and ice cream. Someone needs to cut the cake, someone needs to scoop the ice cream, and someone needs to serve everything. If you don’t have your heart set on a particular decorated cake, then I highly recommend cupcakes. Just plop a candle in one so the Birthday Kid can blow it out after a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. Afterwards, just pass out the cupcakes… No knife needed, and maybe even no plates if you really want to streamline things. And the best idea of all… Pre-packaged ice cream cups… No scooping involved! Just toss a cup to each kid and tell them to dig in. These tips are especially useful if you have the party somewhere other than your house but still need to provide the dessert. Try these two simple steps and you might be able to enjoy the cake and ice cream yourself for a change!

  1. We took a similar shortcut on our preschooler’s birthday. Her school teacher specified that there should be no eating or drinking in the school, so we couldnt take along a big birthday cake for her to cut with her classmates. So we took along individually packed brownies (and the usual party favour bags). She then cut one of those brownies in class and distributed the rest to her friends.
