Last week I had the very important task of assisting in the world's cutest first birthday. It was a Hawaiian theme, complete with a catered shave ice stand! Perfect for summer!

My favorite thing is SNACKS so I also got to set up a snack table for guests to come take their pick of 'local' treats:

Li Hing candies, kaki mochi, Pocky, kimi boro balls, Diamond animal cookies and sour apple candies. I also made some chocolate dipped marshmallow pops as well. Heaven!

I made little customizable tags for treat bags to scoop their snacks into - so they could snack all day and if they laid down the bag, they could find it again.

The food was catered by King's Hawaiian and it was fantastic, spam musubi, kalua pig, beef skewers, chicken, rice, mac salad, mini sliders, hot dogs. AMAZING food. It was a total feast!

For dessert there was King's Paradise cake (what else?) but I also made up some cupcakes to look like......real shave ice! How real did it look? No one ate them. WHAT. People thought they were fake and were wondering why the ice wasn't melting. It's sugar, people!!

Reluctantly people started eating them and were shocked to find out it was an honest to goodness cupcake. Sheesh! Since my kids are used to me making food that is fake looking - they spent no time in picking out the ones they wanted.

It was an amazing party with great food and friends!

Those cupcakes are fantastic! I bet the spoons and straws stuck in them just threw everyone off. :-)
