Birthday Party Ideas For 9 Yr Old Girls

Simple birthday decoration
Had a friend who was looking for kids birthday party ideas and especially birthday party ideas for 9 yr old girls. As she knew that Home Kitchen Creations conducts baking classes for kids, she decided to look into baking birthday parties for kids.

Alternating between cupcake birthday parties and cheesecakes, she opted for a cheesecake baking birthday party for her 9 yr old girl. That decided, she was discharged from her duty as the birthday party planner.

Here are some pictures taken during the baking birthday party recently.

According to my friend, "the kids liked the recipes and really enjoyed themselves.  Really talking non stop about the party."

No Bake Cheesecake Recipe

Love making no bake cheesecakes. They are not only simple to do, you do not need any baking time, although you do need to refrigerate them before eating.  :)

Somehow if you can make cheesecakes, be they baked or no bake cheesecakes,  you seem to move up a notch in your baking skills in the eyes of those who do not bake.

If you are looking for simple cheesecake recipes, here is an easy no bake cheesecake recipe which I would like to share.

Make Fondant Animals and Fondant Creations

Though I took up the PME Diploma in Sugar Flowers, I have not had any formal training on how to make figures with fondant.  Suddenly had a craze last week to start using fondant and churning out some fondant creations.  Here are some of the fondant figures that I came up with...

Was fortunate to be able to make some fondant animals as well such as the fondant bear, monkey and giraffe.  The ducks and frogs were done last year when I had an order for a 1st Birthday cupcakes.

Fondant figure of a monkey... not very well done and still lots to improve
It was a very fun and exciting week for me as I played about making some of the fondant creations.  If you have the patience and the passion, there is  nothing that you cannot do...  :)
