Dr Seuss themed party food: Things I learned.
Cat In The Hat pancake skewers with fresh strawberries and cream, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish jelly cups, Hop On Popcorn, Oh The Places You'll Go biscuits, Thing One and Thing Two fairy floss, Trufulla Tree fruit skewers, Green Eggs and Ham chocolate eggs and devilled eggs- if it is on Pinterest you will try and make it.
Your dear friend Michelle will make blue fairy floss (we used a Flossy Fairy Floss Machine, and used a few drops of blue food dye to turn the white sugar blue. I let it dry for a few days before the event). It will take AGES, make an epic mess and sadly all twenty five of the little fairy floss cups will melt into nothingness in minutes. Not a single guest will admire them, or eat them because they will all turn into sticky blue stains which render the cupcake liners useless- You won't even be able salvage the custom cases and use them to display lollies. Never again.
taste.com.au recipe for devilled eggs, adding in an avocado and some horseradish cream and will later realise they were so popular you didn't even get to try one.
A basic pancake recipe, fresh strawberries and cream in a can. The cream will melt but the guests won't mind. Next time try a stabilised cream recipe.
All in all, the party is a success. Thank you Pinterest, but mostly thank you Michelle. For a forensic scientist you sure have some rad party skills!
