CELEBRATE / Mirror Mirror
SET DESIGN, FOOD DESIGN and GRAPHICS BY Daniela Talvitie / Models: Eila and Andrea
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Yes, a birthday celebration can be chic and edgy, a lovely party theme for older girls!
Find an eye-catcher to make your party special! For this party, we fell in love with the mirror that rocked our world. Just find it in IKEA. (Tip: If you do not wish to have the frames black, spray paint the borders with the color of your choosing.)
Dark decor brings a touch of elegance when combined wisely with colorful elements. Download our party tags for free for your own party!
A great way to create a background for any party is to cover a large piece of styrox with a piece of fabric, attach it with a staple pistol.
Make the most of the seasonal offerings. We used berries like cherries and strawberries. They are visually stunning and delicious to both adults and children. Explore your artistic streak and use real branches with glossy candied apples. To enhance the color of the apples, use Dr.Oetker red food coloring. (Tip: prepare the apples the same day to avoid the apples going bad.)
The cake, the most important treat in the party, is made of dark chocolate, with a cherry compote as the filling and vanilla bean cream cheese as the frosting. We used Vanilla bean by Dr. Oetker. As we are big fans of cupcakes, our red velvet cupcakes with butter cream frosting (keeping the red theme in mind) are decorated with the delicate sugar flowers by Dr. Oetker.

Dark chocolate cake is all about POP. Continuing with the theme, we used the tree branches for the pops. We dipped the pops in the dark chocolate and covered them with Dr. Oetker Lillyfee© sugar decorations.
Combing lime juice, condensed milk and few drops of Dr.Oetker’s green food coloring and voilà, a perfect drink for the Mirror Mirror party.
Want to make it more chic? Use real red roses and cherries to decorate the cake.
