Game On! Dessert Table


The coolest trend at the moment for kid’s birthday parties is the Video Game Truck.  Whoever thought of putting a bunch of tv screens and gaming consoles in the back of a large truck is a genius. Recently I was asked to create a dessert table based on the general theme of video games instead of just a specific game. This task was pretty difficult considering the number of gaming consoles out there.  I narrowed my design to the top 3 (Wii, Xbox, and Playstation) and divided the table based on color and console. My dear friend Abby of Piece of Cake created all the intricate game controllers and fondant cupcake toppers.  She made Wii remote pops, Xbox and Playstation controller pops, as well as fondant Wii remotes, Xbox symbol, Xbox controller, and various Playstation controller cupcake toppers. My favorite fondant topper was the mii character image of the birthday boy.  The rest of the table was filled with juice bottles, sugar cookies, and jello cups all in the color schemes of green for Xbox, blue for Wii, and red for Playstation.  The birthday cake was topped with miniature game consoles (aka. gift card holder) and a mii character of the birthday boy. The background was a Power Station banner re-used from our Super Mario Brothers Dessert Table.  I designed juice wrappers and food name cards using the power button as my inspiration.  The dessert table was a huge hit supplying the kids with enough sugar energy to play throughout the evening.
