Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Birthday Pancakes

Want to make your birthday kiddo feel special? How about birthday pancakes? My youngest loves banana pancakes, but my oldest insisted on a twist! {wink}

Banana Peanut Butter & Chocolate Birthday Pancakes | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

These peanut butter chocolate banana pancakes are so very simple…  because… well, I used a shortcut.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large ripe banana

Blend all ingredients in a mixer, spoon onto a flat griddle and cook… with butter. Yep. Butter.

For the topping, it doesn’t get any easier. Just microwave (in a microwave safe bowl) 1 tbsp of smooth peanut butter per pancake stack and drizzle. Top with banana slices. Finally microwave fudge topping. I used Breyer’s in the microwave safe pouch. My kiddos… okay and me too… love it!

Hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate… and that these help make your kiddos smile on their birthday!

Construction Theme Birthday Party

Yesterday I shared the darling Construction Themed Birthday Cake and today I’m sharing all the rest of the party details. So if you have a little digger in the family, make sure you pin this page for lots of party inspiration!

Construction Theme Birthday Party | Ellen Jay Events on TheCelebrationShoppe.com

And for the party games, activities and favors!

Construction Theme Birthday Party Activities | Ellen Jay Events on TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Details straight from the hostess, Lauren of Ellen Jay Events:

This was for my son Sam’s 2nd birthday. I decided to go with a dump truck construction theme because he is crazy about trucks right now. Last year for his first birthday I did a Little Man theme with bow ties and mustaches in pastel colors so this year I wanted to go a little bit bolder with the orange and yellow and lots of chocolate to represent dirt and mud and all the things little boys love and showcase some of his interests! Sam absolutely had a blast dressing up as a construction worker in the photo booth and playing dump trucks with all of his friends in the sandbox. And a month later, he is still talking about,  “my birthday party”, “dump trucks” and “dirt” so I think it was a success!

For the sweets I wanted to focus on lots of chocolate to resemble dirt/mud with pops of orange and yellow. They consisted of chocolate cake and cupcakes with chocolate buttercream, “dirt cups” – layers of brownies, chocolate pudding and crushed oreos, sugar cookies in the shapes of dump trucks, hard hats, construction cones and the #2, homemade caramel corn, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, Reese’s Pieces and Whoppers.

The party activities included a coloring station with crayons and hard hats for all the kids, a photo booth with props, and a “pin the load on the dump truck” game with a prize wall. For party favors all the kids got a sand bucket and shovel with a dump truck, stickers and bubbles.

 

The invitation/printables were ordered on etsy from KM Thomas Designs

All the sweets/decorations/styling/photography was done by ellenJay – Stylish Events + Sweets

Construction Theme Birthday Cake

How much fun is this construction theme birthday cake?!

Construction Theme Birthday Party

Lauren Kapeluck of Ellen Jay Events hosted a construction themed birthday party for her little guy and this cake is just one small detail, but it’s won my heart. So simple to make, but such an awesome display.

All you’ll need are crushed chocolate graham crackers for the dirt, some brand new construction toys (well washed), a few orange cone candles and a chocolate cake. 

You can style this in less than five minutes, but you’ll have your guests talking all day. LOVE IT!

I’ll be sharing more of Lauren’s amazing party tomorrow and you can find her here too:
