As part of the 20th Annual Festival of Trees gala event in Port Angeles, Washington, a fundraiser benefiting Olympic Medical Center, Itsy Bitsy Foodies donated a cupcake and treat table for a children’s birthday party as a premium for one of the auction trees. Aubree, the birthday girl, chose an Ariel theme for her 5th birthday and had a pool party at the public pool. I chose Ariel’s colors (teal, red and white) as the color theme to work with.
For the Ariel Cupcakes, I decided to use mermaid chocolate molds and color them like Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Some blue-colored sugar sprinkes and teal-colored buttercream frosting added the finishing touches to the Ariel centerpiece dessert.
I then made Dessert Sushi for a fun, Under the Sea-themed treat.
Chocolate-Swirled Pretzel Rods in Ariel’s colors were the perfect filler to help decorate the table.
Peanut Butter & Jelly Fish (and Starfish) Sandwiches provided a more substantial snack to the treat table.
Goldfish crackers and Swedish Fish were easy Under the Sea nibbles and rounded out the treat table.
For a festive drink I made an easy Lime Sherbet Punch to match the greens of the color theme. Simply mix 1 liter of lemon-lime soda with 1 can of lime juice concentrate. Add scoops of lime sherbet to taste.
