Toddler Friendly Party Food

My girl loves cake, and dessert and fruit and chocolate and mainly anything sweet.

For her Birthday Tea I wanted to go all out with the sweet table. I will still be serving sandwiches, crisps and other party food but where I really wanted to go to town was with toddler friendly birthday treats.
I didn’t want to attempt anything that would be too taxing. I wanted simple, tasty treats that were delicious but looked amazing too.
Cup cakes
Rosalie’s wonderful Auntie Lucy made these gorgeous cup cakes. They taste as delicious as they look too!


Crispy cakes
I wanted to make these chocolate dipped crispy cake bars after seeing them on pinterest. You can find the recipe I used here.


Sponge fingers

These are super simple to make but look so good. I was inspired by some similar treats on pinterest made with pink wafers. I decided to choose sponge fingers so they matched our yellow colour scheme.


A Birthday Party wouldn’t be complete without Jelly. My Nana made the scrummy yellow jellies to match our sunshine theme.


Fruit wands
How cute do these look? Obviously when I saw these on Pinterest I knew I HAD to make them for Rosalie’s party. Ours were yellow themed of course, with grapes, pineapple and melon. I simply cut out my melon shapes and threaded the fruit on to the skewers.


Marshmallow pops
Again, how could I resist these marshmallow pops? They are basically giant marshmallows, dipped in white chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Simple yet they look so lovely.

We are all big pop corn fans in this house and they are so easy for kids to pick up and eat.


Rosalie’s Cake
Rosalie’s Cake was made by my Nana. It’s a simple sponge recipe with apricot jam and butter icing filling. I ordered the cake topper and 2 decorations from Clara Ivy. I am so pleased with how it turned out.


All these recipes are super easy to make. Rosalie even helped me make them which was such a fun thing to do togethee.

Will you be making any of these treats? What party food do you recommend for toddlers?
