I wanted to do something a little different for the cake so we decided on an orange creamsicle flavor.
I started with a yellow cake mix and just subbed orange juice for the water, added the zest of an orange, and 2 tsp. of orange extract per box. I ended up making 3 boxes of cake mix so I used 6 tsp. of orange extract. Now as an adult I can handle eating an orange flavored cake that is white, but if I were a kid and you were calling the cake Orange Creamsicle cake and it wasn't orange I would give you the shifty eyes. So for the sanity of the children I added some orange food coloring.....maybe even too much haha.
I wanted to make an Agent P cake so a fedora was a must. I formed it out of rice crispy treats. I accidentally got the variety pack so there's strawberry teats, chocolate drizzle, and who knows what else crammed all together
Then covered it in fondant.
I stacked the orange cakes with vanilla buttercream for the Cream portion of the orange creamsicle. I decorated the cake to look like Perry's face and added the hat on top
The best part was when one of the kids declared "This tastes like a popsicle!" Mission accomplaished
This isn't so much about what we served to drink, but how we served it. My sister wanted to avoid a million pop cans crowding every open inch of space and the inevitable spills that come along with having a pack of children hopped up on sugar. We found these little water bottles for a dollar at Walmart.
We peeled off the label and put on a Phineas and Ferb sticker. We wrote their names on them and they got to take them home at the end of the day. Cute and functional. Her carpet was spared
