Food Decoration Ideas For Birthday Parties of Your Kids

The one day for which kids wait the whole year  is for their birthday. Birthday is the time where children make best memories with their friends. Entertainment accompanied by good food is a great combination. Kids do not eat food until that seems attractive. Today let us see  few birthday snack ideas that are not only tasty but also amaze children to have more.


Cake pops are most happening party foods. Kids love these as they are easy to handle like lollipops and tasty too. Cake pops of many flavours can be made with dip of our choice.

Let us some types of cake pops today. The first one is galaxy cake pops. It is a basic vanilla cake pop. Take a vanilla cake and crumble well into small pieces. Add 1/3rd cup of frosting cream to the cake and mix properly. Take the mixture and make into small smalls of appropriate size.

Take the lollipop stick and dip one end in molten white chocolate and then pierce into the cake pop and freeze for 30 minutes  so that it stays firm. Now, it is time for the galaxy paint on top. Add water to the gelatine and rest for five minutes. Heat some water in a saucepan and add sugar and condensed milk. After the mixture is done add the gelatine to it and stir well. Infuse this overall mixture into white chocolate and blend well till it melts. Add food colours like navy, purple and light blue colours. Dip the cake pop into the chocolate and twirl. Dry the cake pop and enjoy.

Our next cake pop is cheese cake pop using  graham crackers. Take some graham crackers in a cover and mash them and turn into powder. Add melted butter and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a baking tray and form a layer and freeze for an hour. Take of cream cheese and add powdered sugar and vanilla extract.

The food decorations we are going to see are amazingly attractive and healthy. These are the best fun foods. Let us see how to make boring fruits creative enough so that children cannot resist these. The first one we are going to make is a cup cake.

Arrange the oranges in the circular pattern so that they overlap each other. Decorate it with a cherry on top. Our orange cup cake is ready.

Ladybirds are the cutest bugs I have ever known with vibrant red colour and black spots. Now we are going to replicate the ladybird bugs using apples. Take a red colour apple and cut it into half vertically. Make a slit at the centre on the curvy part and small circles on either side of the slit. Place chocolate chips in the tiny circles. For making head, use black grapes. Pierce a black grape on the top of apple using tooth pick. For making the antenna break the tooth pick into small pieces and pierce on the head.
