Thanks! This was definitely a fun party to put together. Thanks for the great job on the custom invites-- the invitation sets the tone for the event -- thanks for getting us off to such a great start!

Ohhhh, I love the cookies! What a clever idea.

This is the most adorable party theme! I wish my girl wasn't so grown up. I love to do this. The cookies are perfectly real. May I have the recipe for them?? My son would love this for a Birthday morning kick-off. Great job!!
Michelle
P.S. Could you email me instructions and recipe for how you did the cookies?! Thanks

Hi Michelle... this was my daughter's party -- thanks for the compliments! As for the cookies -- I used a pretty basic sugar cookie recipe. I just cut them into circles using a circle cookie cutter. Frosting them was the best -- for frosting, I mix 16 oz powdered sugar with 3 Tbsp Meringue powder, and
1/3 cup warm water. I add water, depending on the consistency I want. I use the Wilton food color GELS -- in this case, a touch of brown to make the tan color of pancakes. The pat of "butter" are Sugar Sheets, made by Wilton, and available in a variety of colors at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc. I cut them into squares and stuck them on the cookies with a dab of frosting to serve as "glue". They were some of the easiest sugar cookies I've ever made and some of the most fabulous-looking. Thank you!

Kelly, Thanks for the tips. I just can't get over how real the cookies look. My son loves pancakes and is a real sweet eater. He would get a big kick out of this. Again,
thank you and fabulous job.

Amazing! How did you make the cake?

Shannon, the cake was actually an idea from Rachel Ray magazine. I made a boxed funfetti cake mix, and just cooked the cake on a pancake griddle. The hardest part was flipping them, since it's a different consistency than regular pancake mix, and I made the cakes so much bigger than regular pancakes. But once I got the hang of it, it was pretty was pretty easy. I then used powdered sugar and water for a glaze ("syrup") and then put a few confetti sprinkles on the cake. Voila!

Kelly, Thanks for the tips. I just cant get over how real the cookies look. My son loves pancakes and is a real sweet eater. He would get a big kick out of this. Again,
thank you and fabulous job.

Kelly,

I am planning this type of party for my daughter next month.
I was so thrilled to come across this posting.

Still looking for clever crafts to do using breakfast items, cereal necklace I was planning to do, do you have any other ideas.

Could you please send me the link for the invite?

Thanks so much
Nicki

Just found this on Pinterest and I absolutely LOVE this idea! My daughter's 4th birthday is in October and I think this would be perfect! :-)
