cowboy birthday treats

cowboy-birthday-treats

Here are a few more presentation ideas and treats from my little guy’s wild west birthday bash a few weeks ago. For the presentation, I simply took several square vases and embellished them with the same bandana ribbon and twine that I used on the cake tier. Just a dot of hot glue and they won’t move. Plus, they clean up easy so you can transform them again for your next gathering. 

As for the treats, I slaved over placing the Twizzlers (aka cowboy ropes) in the tall vase {wink}. The chocolate dipped marshmallows took a little more time, but not much. Melt your chocolate in a double boiler, spear three marshmallows on a lollipop stick, coat the marshmallows using a silicon brush, add a few candy stars and lay them on wax paper to cool. For the final touch, package them in cello bags. I have to admit, I didn’t make enough. They were a hit.
