Peter Pan Cookies And An Event
Last month I was busy preparing for a big event “Peter Pan” play that was to be held in our community. I had the pleasure to be a part of this spectacular event! There were 4 shows, held over the course of a weekend. Over 450 people attended this. My daughter had taken part in the play too. All the kids did a fantastic job and all those involved in the making of it. The costumes were gorgeous, the props, the stage set up, organization of the whole event was done impeccably. It was a great success thanks to the countless hours and effort put in by tons of volunteers, parents and teachers.
I was thrilled that I too got to be a part of this by having a concession stand selling cookies, cupcakes and cake pops. This was the first time I set up my own “shop”. It was the most awesome feeling ever to interact face to face with the customers. After trying out the goodies, I loved how people rolled their eyes and told me that they loved every thing that was on my table. A feeling and a high that I cannot describe!
I made Peter pan cookies, Red velvet cake pops, and five different types of cupcakes like chocolate- caramel, chocolate cupcake, butterscotch cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes and classic vanilla.
Here are some of the photos from the event!
Peter Pan, Wendy, Crocodile and Captain Hook Silhouettes. I iced the cookies a plain white and then simply airbrushed them the color I wanted. Then, piped the silhouette. This saved me some time, instead of mixing 2 or 3 different types of colors.
Tinkerbelle faces turned out to be a real crowd pleaser! This was my second attempt at making character cookies. The first time with these frozen cookies I found it tough doing Elsa’s eyes but a great tip from Angela of Oh sugar events really helped. She is one of my favorite cookie decorator’s and I do hope someday I get to meet her and learn from her.
Oops wait, I forgot flying Peter Pan silhouettes.
These are the chocolate caramel cupcakes. These are simply divine! Chocolate cupcakes that are lightly brushed with a coffee/sugar syrup, then injected with some home made caramel sauce, dipped in a rich chocolate ganache and then topped with some more caramel sauce!!
My little “shop”. Thank you Ms. Debbie Seinfeld for giving me this opportunity and to all the wonderful volunteers who helped me sell and set up. My husband is not in the picture but he really helped me out a lot.
My dear friend Kim came in just to help me!! Thank you so much for your encouragement and support!
