For a Hannah Montana birthday party you’ll want to have food and cake fit for a every superstar guest. Check out these tips for a Star Shaped Cake and Microphone Cupcakes:
Star Shaped Cake–What you’ll need:
1- Cake mix
Star Shaped pan
1- 16 oz. container of ready-made frosting (Reserve ¼ cup to frost the snowball.)
Wilton Violet coloring paste or gel
Silver Dragees (edible silver balls)
Giant Silver Star to use as a cake board. (The remaining stars in the set can be used in your decorating.)
Bake the cake according to the directions on the package. Place the star cake on the star-shaped board. Frost with violet tinted icing. Cover the top of the Snowball with white frosting and then roll it in the silver dragees. Place the snowball on the top of the cake. Add the HoHo to the bottom of the snowball to make it look like a microphone. Attach two silver dragees with frosting to the HoHo to create an off/on switch.
If you prefer cupcakes, try making these easy Microphones, which are guaranteed crowd pleasers:
Microphone Cupcakes–What you’ll need:
1 Cake mix
24 flat-bottomed cones
16 oz. container of frosting
Prepare mix according to the directions on the package. Spoon about ¼ cup of the batter mix into each cone. Place cones in muffin tin for easiest handling. Bake for approximately 20 minutes at 350 degrees, or until toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely, frost the top of the cone, and then roll the frosted part of the “cupcake” in the silver dragees.
As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under 10 or 11 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening. If you wish, schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal, and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other munchies.
If you decide to serve a light meal, serve food that you would typically find at a mall food court or concert — pizza, nachos, burgers and fries or soft pretzels.
