Birthday Bake Shop


This past weekend we celebrated my daughter turning 2. It rained the entire day with no break, but we had a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. Since Brianna is not yet old enough to demand a certain theme for her party, I totally took advantage and went with a theme I've been wanting to do for a while; Brianna's Bake Shop!

To keep with the bake shop theme I knew I wanted to do an assortment of different sweets. As a favor for each child to take home I decided to make candy filled ice cream cone rice krispie treats.
I made a batch of rice krispie treats, scooped it out onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet with an ice cream scooper and allowed them to fully cool. Then dip the scoops in melted chocolate or colored candy melts and sprinkle with different toppings. Once the ice cream scoops are set, dip the rim of a flat bottomed ice cream cone in the melted chocolate (this will act as your glue), fill the cone with candies, and attach the chocolate covered scoop to the cone.

I really think they were adorable, and my kids loved ripping into them!

The Birthday Cake
I made the cake look like the front of a bakery with the table and chairs and tiny cakes on the table. The cake was coconut and vanilla layers filled with a coconut swiss meringue buttercream and toasted coconut
