I am so sorry its been awhile since my last post, I have been sooo busy. It was my daughters 5th birthday this weekend and we threw a party. Yay!!! Of course, it was Gluten and Dairy free!
It was an awesome party. It was an around the world theme. We started in Paris and had Pink Lemonade Parfaits, then journeyed to New York to make Art in Cate's Art gallery, then we went to Tokyo and had a Japanese tea ceremony and finally ended up in Hollywood where we enjoyed a Chipotle styled buffet and Karaoke. We also served gluten free cupcakes, chocolate dipped marshmallows and they took home gourmet popcorn.
I made the parfaits the morning of. Super yummy see the recipe below.
Parfaits- Pink Lemonade Parfaits (see recipe below)
Cupcakes-I used Pamela's cake mix and added vanilla and Natural Strawberry Syrup by Walden Farms for color. I love Pamela's cake mix because it tastes the closest to regular cake. My guest commented on how they couldn't tell the difference at all. Another Yay!!
Frosting-Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Icing (GFDF surprisingly). I used a little syrup for color as well.
Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows-GF marshmallows and dipped them in Enjoy Life's melted chocolate chips (GFDFSF). They were sooo good!
Chipotle Buffett- Grilled Chicken, Black beans, Basmati rice, Daiya's Chedder shreds, shredded lettuce and diced bell peppers.
Gourmet Popcorn-Popolopolis from Costco. Its GF, we used the Carmel flavored.
