my son is turning one next week and i am going all out with his bday party it is a "oh the places he'll go" dr seuss theme and i am doing an all out dr seuss food spread. i want to make cheese trees and was thinking of just doing cheese cubes stuck in styrophome balls but i don't know whether i should just do like one big one or several small ones individual sizes and what can i make the "trunks" out of?
i know this really has nothing to do with cake, lol, but any ideas would be much appreciated
Wish I could help, sounds like fun!!!
baguettes could make trees, if they were slightly over cooked!
mini ones could be done with sausages, though you might need to get creative on supports.
How about pretzel rods or breadsticks for the individual trees? What a cute idea for a 1st BD!
thanks for you guy's input
i was at michael's earlier and got some great ideas. i decided to make little individual truffle size cheese balls and roll them in green stuff ...lol, can't think of the name of it... i was looking in the floral section and found some green dowels and i bought 3 different size round ceramic pots which i am going to paint seuss colors and put styrophome in them and stick a bunch of "cheese trees" in them like tulips at different heights. i hope it turns out good. i couldn't really think of any other way of doing it, but it looks good in my head
i am also doing daisy head maisy burgers with daisy cutouts in cheese on the top bun and lots of other fun stuff. i am sooo excited!! and having a blast planning this. of course i am way over doing myself, lol.
i am still not sure how i want to do the cake yet either any ideas?
That sounds like a neat idea!
As for the cake, express the Dr. Seuss them. Maybe incorporate the hat?
i was looking at the topsy turvey/whimsical cake contest and tehre is a friggin awesome dr seuss one in there. was thinking about doing one like that (with the hand holding up the 3 tier seussy looking cake) on top of a hat instead of what that particular cake has but i also reeeeally like the fish coming out of the fish bowl cakes. i want to do it all but that would be sooo overcrowded, lol there are just so many directions to go with this theme.
i also considered an open book and on the inside put "one fish, two fish, here comes zanderfish" (baby's name is zander) but my husband thought that sounded dumb. i got that idea from a baby shower cake.
