This week I celebrated my birthday with an ice cream PARTY BAR.  Party Bars (also known as food stations) are an instant way to add festivity & fun to any meal or party.  Party bars provide an excellent excuse to mingle and a talking point for guests. They also guide you with a theme to decorate with, like my French Crepe’s party bar that I did for my Hospitality class two weeks ago.

The options are endless with party bars.  A few of my favorite bar ideas are:

Smores, Cookies, Yogurt, Nachos, candy and cupcake party bars.

Here’s a great idea: Cupcake Fondue - Perfect for kids and kids at heart!

Cupcake Fondue You will need:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup liquid (orange juice, fruit juice, milk, or water)
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup Miniature-size cupcakes in the flavor of your choice, cooled and unfrosted Assorted sprinkles, chopped nuts, and other toppings
  1. Make a batch of mini cupcakes or make a pound cake and cut it into cubes.
  2. Make the fondue by whisking together powdered sugar, orange juice, and corn syrup.  Adjust the consistency with a drop of liquid or a dash more powdered sugar until you get have a smooth, thick glaze.  Amanda used orange juice for the liquid portion to give it a citrus flavor and cheese-like yellow fondue color.  You could also use grape juice for a pastel purple, or milk/water and add your own coloring.
  3. Pour the frosting into the fondue pot.  Add tons to toppings and enjoy!
