Wee-hee! Sugar High!
July 18, 2010 by Lotte
Rata’s first birthday party was a raging success. Here is some token food porn to make you feel like you really missed out.
Punch bowl set-up (pre-punch). Recipe: One pint each cold tea, dry lemonade, ginger ale, grapefruit juice, two pints ‘apple and orange’ juice, 1/4 cup lime cordial, mint leaves, sliced citrus, some ice cubes. Spike with your choice of alcohol.
Cupcakes, speculaas, Rata spice biscuits, stray cookie cutter.
Nicole’s Key Lime Squares (delicious).
Nicole’s Nanaimo Bars (also delicious). Commonly known in this country as ‘Nainoma Bars’, but as I’d never had them before, I am easily converted to saying their name correctly.
Close up of the cupcakes to show the handmade flags I made for them. The little triangles were off-cuts from making bunting. They are bits of maps and stuff.
…the Brandy Snaps that were able to be filled. They look a little lewd. I didn’t actually get to eat one. I didn’t see anybody eat one either.
Post on the cake soon-ish. Nicole has some of the photos.
