Episode Info

Episode Info: This episode originally aired on May 15, 2015. I have been wanting to doing a superhero party for a while and with the new Avengers movie out, it was the perfect time! This party was so much fun, I love the bright colors, the kids (and adults) loved the games, masks, and capes, and I loved how the cake turned out! In this podcast I’ll cover how-to’s for the masks, capes, cake, comic popcorn cones, Hulk smash wall, Hawkeye bad guy target shoot, and lots of food and decorating ideas. The Avengers Cake:   I made a three-tiered cake with each tier representing one Avenger. Each tier was made of two layers, yellow cake and red velvet cake, Iron Man colors! Bottom tier – Captain America: Blue buttercream frosting with the shield made of red, white, and blue fondant. Middle tier – Iron Man: Red buttercream frosting with a ring of yellow fondant around a battery powered LED light. I cut a hole in the cake so the LED light would fit snugly inside and be flush to the front of the cake. Because the light is a push on/off, I could keep it off until party time then turn it on just before guests arrived. Top tier – Hulk/Thor: Green buttercream frosting with black fondant for the hair to represent the Hulk. Coming out of the top is a Thor hammer toy that is resting in the top of the Hulk layer. I dug out a small portion from the top for the hammer to sit, but I also used a skewer through the top layer and the hammer to secure the hammer to the cake.   Tablescape and Food: Tablescape: Table backdrop of cityscape: I bought a blue corrugated tri-fold display board from the local craft store then used black poster paint to paint the buildings. Once dry, I used Mod Podge to glue on yellow card stock squares for the windows. Blue and red linens Red, yellow, and blue plates and platters Mason jars with tissue paper color pops: I wanted to add a few more pops of color to the table and originally planned on doing towers of gumballs or candy, but that was going to get expensive, so I came up with another idea… I took mason jars and filled each jar with one piece of tissue paper then used a second piece of paper to flare out of the top. I did five jars using the tissue paper that was left over from the pom pom project (red, blue, purple, yellow, black). Pom poms hanging from ceiling in Avenger colors: Take 8-20 square pieces of tissue paper (the more you use, the fuller the pom poms- I did 8 for this party but I prefer the look of a pom pom with at least 14) Fold the all the sheets together accordion style (like making a fan) Secure the middle with a twist tie, string, fishing line, etc. (I used a pipe cleaner then made a loop to connect the fishing line) Trim the ends to either a point or rounded Slowly and carefully pull one piece of tissue at a time away from the folds. Once you have done this with all the tissues, you have a pom pom! The are light and easy to hang from almost anywhere! I used the following color combinations for each Avenger: Iron...
