Invited guests were advised to bring a dish, whether its a drink, appetizer, snack, dip, anything!
but it had to be HOMEMADE , & made by themselves.
& for those who didnt know how to cook, or just didnt have the time to make a dish,
they helped chip in a few $dollars to someone who was, just to be fair & to help out ~
Anyway, the event went pretty well, but i guess i picked a bad weekend to host it,
it was the week before mid-terms & some of my friends pick sunday night as their "finish homework night".
But i didnt want to move it to another week because ive already had to postpone it twice.
So , the next time i host another Food Party, i shall pick an empty Saturday night ~
Back to the topic of food,
so since i was the host of this event, i felt i had to put a little more on the table.
i avoided main course meals, since majority of the guests were planning on brining heavier meals, such as Korean BBQ, Steak Kabobs, Pastas, etc.
So instead i made 2 snack appetizers, 1 drink, and 1 dessert.
Heres what i made :
|Ingredients for My Mini Skewers|
- Salami (feel free to use any other dry meats)
- Baby Grape Tomatoes
|Tomato, Basil, Salami & Mozzarella Skewer|
i love these single appetizer bites!
simple to make, & super yummy.
combine them in whichever way you want,
i went with sort or a swirled-layered pattern ~
so as soon as i got it to stand, i started hollowing out
the fruit. Once again, be careful to NOT puncture through
the bottom of the fruit.
|Finished Punch Bowl|
|Watermelon & Citrus Drink|
i needed the extra sweetness from the sugar, since its the
middle of winter & watermelon isnt in season... hehe~
|Cupcake Burger !|
is this freaking adorable or what?!
haha, this was a big hit amongst my friends,
they loved it !
it fooled my parents & friends, they really believed it was a
mini burger , haha
- Coconut Shavings
- Green, Red, & Yellow food coloring
- Sesame seeds
- Sliced yellow & chocolate cupcakes
- White Frosting (i made mine from scratch)
if you want the recipe for simple frosting, "click here"
For the "Lettuce" portion of your burger, add a few drops
of green food coloring to shaved coconut & mix.
Divide your frosting into 2 bowl & add red food coloring
for the "Ketchup" & yellow to the other for the
"Cheese / Mustard" portion of your cupcake burger.
(i dont like having too much frosting on my cakes, so i
drizzled the frosting around the edges only)
Once youre done stacking the "burger" sprinkle a few
sesame seeds over the top & enjoy your creative desserts !
