My prevailing memory of birthday parties when I was a child include exciting games of pass the parcel (of course only the last wrapper revealed a prize), lurid dresses (well it was the 70’s) and, my favourite, jelly and ice cream. Thirty years on and I admit children’s parties have changed, but in essence they are much the same …the party games, the birthday outfits, the cake and candles all still remain.
Now over the past 7 years I have attended a lot of kids birthday parties, big small, grand, old-fashioned, inside, outside, with horses, zoo’s, hotels, picnics, pottery, disco’s, theme parks with entertainment and themes a plenty and I have a question…where has the Jelly gone?
Children’s Parties these days are amazing in countless ways but bringing back Jelly would make them even better!!
Here is an easy peasy fun and fabulous way to add a bit of wobble to your party!
you will need:
– baking cups (these are great as they look lovely and also hold liquid)
– Instant Jelly cubes or powder, follow the instructions, pour into the cups and leave to set.
– squirty cream (kids just LOVE squirting this stuff and I love retro)
– a selection of sweets, fruit, sprinkles etc
Let the children get involved by squirting the cream on the set jelly and topping with yummy treats! Fabulous and delicious Jelly Cupcakes.
Voila! yummy jelly cupcakes, enjoy!
