One of my son’s best friends celebrated his 7th birthday with a super-scientific theme.
I was thrilled to cater the desserts and style the dessert table for such a sweetheart.
Before I got started on the desserts or decorating, I chose a color-story of gray and white, with pop colors in bright yellow, blue, orange and neon green.
With all of the love put into making a cake, I always like to have it as the centerpiece of a dessert table. This 6″ cake was made to blow out the candles, and for the family to enjoy that evening. I hand-cut fondant to make beakers, test tubes and bubbles. At the top, I used lollipop sticks and white gum balls to represent molecules.
When setting the table, I used a gray/silver table cloth that matched the cake, along with white and clear glass plating for the cupcakes. I placed the cupcake menu in the foreground so the kids could know exactly what flavors were offered.
The very best part of the table were the glass cylinders, filled with water, and colored with the same food coloring I used for decorating the cake. Just before the kids came in to enjoy dessert, I placed dry ice pieces into the water, for an awesome bubbling (and super-scientific) effect.
The kids absolutely loved it!
