PacMan Party .. Inside the Goody Bag (PacMan Ghost Marshmallow Pops)

Continuing on with the goody bags. Pinterest several food items, and most you know that I like to put fun creations instead of toys. I found PacMan Dots Tube idea on Festa Teen and had to do for the party! I kept mine a little simpler to make the 20 I needed. Another HUGE shout out to KandyKreations for these amazing PacMan tents. This is one of the BEST sites I've come across for party needs and she has a ton of FREE downloads which makes this mom very happy!


Supplies:
Large Marshmallows
Card Stock (White)
Hole PunchPaper Cutter
Scissors 
Candy Eyes
Royal Icing (glue for eyes)
Food Coloring 
Twine or Ribbon
Small Clear plastic bag

I took the Extra Large Marshmallows and took some food coloring with a little water to coat them I used yellow, purple and blue. After they dried I added the candy eyes. I found the royal icing is the best due to it acts like glue (a lot of ppl use it for gingerbread houses). After the eyes are harden onto the marshmallows I then put them in a clear plastic treat bag. 

I downloaded PacMan Font from DaFont, this is my go to place for font's. Now her tents were made to make a tent. I copied and put into a word doc to give me 8 per sheet. Since I was putting on the top of bags I didn't need to fold over or extra paper. PLUS I'm cheap and like to maximize my paper to the fullest . 

I attached the label to the clear bags using twine.

PacMan Party .. Inside the Goody Bag (PacDots Tube)

Continuing on with the goody bags. Pinterest several food items, and most you know that I like to put fun creations instead of toys. I found PacMan Dots Tube idea on Festa Teen and had to do for the party! I kept mine a little simpler to make the 20 I needed.


Supplies:
Clear Tube (Bought on Amazon)
Mini Marshmallows (Or Small White Gum Balls)
Card Stock (White)
Card Stock (Black)
Card Stock (Yellow) 
Hole Punch
Paper Cutter
Scissors
Cricut (to cut circles for PacMan)
Black Sharpie
Glue Stick
Hot Glue Gun 

I looked high and low for small white gum balls. I kept finding bags with multiple colors which then I would have to waste other colors. So I went with mini marshmallows that were cheaper. I took the tubes and placed mini marshmallows standing up to look like the dots in the tube. For the strips I took my paper cutter to cut the black strips that were the size of the tube. I took my hole punch to white card stock to make the dots the PacMan eat. I used my cricut to make small circles. I took my scissors to cut out the mouth, and took a sharpie to make the eye. I took a glue stick to place the white dots on the black strip. I then took the glue stick to glue on the PacMan. Once dry I took the glue gun to attach to the tube.

PacMan Themed Birthday Day ... Apple Cookies

More on our PacMan party themed birthday party. I've shown the PacMan cookies and the Ghost Cookies today it's the Apple Cookies. Now My plan was to do Apple and Cherry cookies both are something PacMan eat in the game. WELL Amazon let me down and the Cherry cookie cutter arrived the MORNING of the party!

If you're in need or cookies for a party or just to eat, shoot me a msg at SweetPea Cookie Therapy. Thank you!


What you Need:
Apple Cookie Cutter
Royal Icing - Red and Green
Pipping Bags


I had an apple cutter on hand from a Descendants party I did a while back for a friend. This has the bite taken out of it, which I made like PacMan took a bite out of them ... lol. I piped on the red for the apple and green for the leaf. Simple, easy design that was perfect for the theme.

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS:
1.In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
2.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
3.Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Julie Usher, she has a GREAT YouTube video on how to make, color and make consistency adjustments

Royal Icing what you need:
2 lbs Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
5 Large Egg Whites (or equivalent) 
Flavor to Taste
Gel Icing Color

Mix powder sugar and cream of tartar in your mixer, just to make sure it is incorporated in. Slowly add egg whites, then whip start of slow then go to very high speed. She says around 2 minutes, my friend had an older mixer so it took almost 10 minutes. You want stiff peaks that hold on and won't fall off the spoon. Add in your flavor, I would suggest you use a clear flavoring.  This would be the glue texture great for ginger bread houses etc.

Take 1 cup of royal icing in a smaller bowl then add your coloring, lightly mix so you don't get air into the the icing. I'm like her and like the gel coloring. 

For Top Coating - Add 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 tsp Water (This is if you don't want to outline and flood)
For Outlining - Add 1/2 to 3/4 tsp Water
For Flooding  - Add 2 to 3 tsp Water

WATCH her video on How to Top-Coat, Outline, and Flood Cookies. YES it is around 7 minutes BUT if you have never done this technique it's a MUST she explains it perfectly.

PacMan Birthday Party ... PacMan Cookies (2 options)

I'm back, sorry for the delay on my post lately. Summer makes it so hard for me to sit and write a post before bed time. I try to write one and so it's ready to go for the next day, but me time right now has been hard to come by.

As you have seen theme going on is PacMan for my son's 10th birthday. Today I show the simple cookies made. These were a lot of fun to make, my son even got into the decorating process.



Here is the 2nd design we put on cupcakes to take to school:


If you're in need or cookies for a party or just to eat, shoot me a msg at SweetPea Cookie Therapy. Thank you!

What you Need:
Round Cookie Cutter
Royal Icing - Yellow and white/uncolored (see recipe below)
Black Edible Pen
Pipping Bags


Bake the circle size you would like, I used a medium size circle cookie cutter. One the cookies were ready for decorating I took some yellow food gel coloring (I use AmeriColor). Using a piping bag you pipe the PacMan shape. I then took a piping bag of white to make the circle the PacMan eats. Caden got his design on and took my black edible pen to make the eyeball. Simple but fun!


I also made some to go to Caden's class the last week of school. Here is those we made:
