Ebabee eats party food: Fun madeleine cake boats

easy kids party food

I don’t always have time to make party food from scratch especially when there are quite a few dishes to make.  Sometimes I rely on shop bought things – I tend to do this more with sweet things and desserts as shop bought desserts can be really good and there is so much to choose from.  But even when I buy readymade stuff, I always like to put my own spin on it.  Just a simple twist that makes it personal and served with love.

When I have kids over for playdates, one my my go to treats is shop bought madeleines.  Madeleines are small enough for little hands and are generally loved by all kids so they go down a treat.  Recently I thought about serving these madeleines for a kids party too – but I wanted to dress them up and put my own fun touch on them as I think food should be fun, especially kids party food.  Madeleines always remind me of boats – they are shaped like boats and so I decided to turn them in to actual boats.

These couldn’t be easier to put together.  I simply attached a sail to each madeleine using a cocktail stick. The sails are cut out of some pretty wrapping paper I had and I’ve taped them on to the cocktail sticks. Next, I put little flags on with each child’s name so that these little madeleines could double-up as cute edible place holders for any kiddy gathering.  And to finish, a little sprinkling of icing sugar.
