Funnibbles!

From bite-sized cakes that pop out in a bunch,
to is-it-a-pie-is-it-a-cup, whatever’s your hunch.
Or say, choco-fortunes, even cookie-wiches,
or perhaps cuke-a-boats, filled with cheeses,
we have it all covered, from crunch to munch!

Like Picasso once said, it takes a long time to grow young. So, in the pursuit of youth and mirth and related matters, we present to you some Yummy-in-your-Tummy Tadka ideas for kids’ parties. As we take our baby steps in this little arena, our first Funnibbles kit is a scrumptious scream fit for little girls, and is sure to make you go heigh-ho, ho-hum, do-whee!

Wave your magic wand over the party table and arrange it like a special treat, the snacks perfectly proportioned, the munchies waiting to please the little darlings. A nibble here, a gobble there..and the giggles are music to Mommy’s ears!

Dress up your party table with whimsical place settings – paper doilies look sweet as place mats. Add each guest’s initials for a place marker and a complementing tattoo party favor.
Whether you’re serving juice or lemonade, who can resist sparkling glasses – swipe the rims with a lemon wedge and dip in colored sugar.

Say hello to the new kids on the block – Cake Pops! The red candy shell encloses a strawberry cake center, tiny yellow sprinkles stand in for the seeds and fondant is cut to make the leaves. Waiting for you to reach out and pop one in your mouth..

Fun! Fun! Fun! Remember those old-fashioned candy shops? Create your own with a row of glass jars or bottles filled with colorful snacks. We’re offering jelly beans, mini wrapped candy, pinwheeled bhakarwadis (for the spice lovers), tiny Cheeselings, sour twists and M&Ms. Kids love opening up the jars and serving themselves, they might even practice their manners as they pass the goodies around the table!

Corn-u-cup-ias! Kid-approved and thumbs up-ed..a crunchy pie shell, with a sweet-corn filling, bound together with lots of melted cheese. Who needs pizza with platters of these around?

There’s no prompting necessary to finish up veggies when you serve adorable cucumber boats, filled with squiggly cream cheese frosting and minty sprinkles. Why let the kids have all the fun? Turn these into hors doeuvres for a cocktail party – spice up the cream cheese and use round, thick slices of cucumber or zucchini.

A selection of 2-bite cookies lets little hands grab and nibble and be on their way – there’s a choice of heart or flower sugar-cookies sandwiched with chocolatey Nutella. Fortune cookies add a touch of suspense – dipped in white chocolate and festively sparkling with colored sugar, they’re just waiting to be broken open and laughed over.

Heaping popcorn or crackers in crinkly cupcake wrappers makes them super easy to serve and easy to reach for when hunger pangs strike little tummies.

    Your stuff is so cute! such inspiration. … How did you shaped the strawberry cake pops? Is it a cookie cutter or did you just do it by hand. ?

    • Tadka Pasta says:

      Thanks so much, Sabrina. We shaped them by hand. Made a ball with the usual cake/icing mix and then flattened one end slightly and made the other end pointy. Once we did a couple, we were rolling out the berry shapes like pros :)
