dora birthday party

we had clara’s 5th birthday party this past weekend.  she really wanted dora theme… =)

similar to last year’s princess party, we wanted the food to be something clara can eat, so the menu was very simple.

menu

shrimp quesadilla & chicken quesadilla

crab dip with chips (crackers for guests)

blueberry muffins & chocolate chip muffins

Mixed berries

mini cupcakes for guests

triple layered chocolate mousse cake for the birthday girl (will post recipe soon)

        

For the party favor, we wanted to avoid any food items to give as gifts.  Clara loves eating mini tomatoes, so i got garden in a bag – mini tomato (found great discount on land’s end online store, very random) and cute little erasers in fun shapes from Daiso.

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!

    Was the recipe for the triple layer chocolate mousse cake ever posted? My daughter has a birthday coming up and I’d love to try this for her. Thanks

      i actually lost the recipe before i got a chance to post it. i will try to work on the recipe and post it soon. just to give you some idea, for the bottom layer, i have used the coconut chocolate cake, and the other two layers were made with heavy cream, gelatin, and flavoring.

      Angela, I tried to make the recipe again for you… i hope it is not too late for your daughter’s birthday. We were away on spring break, so I didn’t get a chance until today…

        Tiffany,
        Thank you for posting this. For Sarah’s birthday, we ended up using the coconut-flour chocolate cake recipe with the buttercream frosting. She loved her cupcake. I am looking forward to trying this recipe as a special treat sometime. Thank you for all the hard work that you do to help our keto-kids love their magic diet.
        Angela
