The first step in creating a magical birthday party for your little star, is choosing a theme. This will allow you to personalise the party by incorporating their favourite colour, movie, tv show, book, character, or any other interests they may have. The easiest way to do this is ask them what they would like, I am sure they will have plenty of ideas! You then may need to simply guide them towards a theme that is realistic in terms of cost and difficulty.

What themes have you created for birthday parties recently? Was it a hit?
To add a bit of pizzazz to your party food table, I always think you need to add a little height! We have a gorgeous fairy party this weekend, and I thought every fairy needs a wand, and these little beauties were created.
Here is the recipe…
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 125 g butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 lightly beaten egg
- 20 plain popsicle sticks
- 1 cup Icing sugar, 3 tsp milk and rose pink food colouring
- Pink sprinkles
Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove and pour over the sugar.
Put the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and stir to combine. It will turn out like a lovely dough.
You will then be able to roll the dough out onto a floured surface. Mine were a bit thick, but 1cm is the maximum thickness – (needs to be thick enough to hold the popsicle stick).
Once the dough is rolled out, use your star shape to make the stars, and then place onto a baking paper lined tray. Then carefully push the popsicle stick into each star! This recipe should make about 20 biscuits.
Bake on 160 (fan forced) for about 15 minutes. Let the biscuits rest to cool, and they will harden.
Finally just mix 1 cup of icing sugar with a drop of rose pink food colouring and paste the lovely mixture over your biscuits. Then sprinkle your sprinkles over the top.
I finished mine off with a little ribbon tied around the popsicle stick.
🙂 Happy baking.
