A Room On The Broom Birthday Party And Cake

Here I share my ideas with you for A Room on the Broom Birthday Party and Cake , showing you some fun party food I created. From sandwitches to witches hats – lots of fun and delicious food for witches of all ages!

A Room on the broom birthday party and cake

Burton is a big fan of Room on the Broom and we read it almost every night.Therefore, it seemed like the perfect idea to hold A Room on the Broom birthday party and cake for his birthday. 

Last Monday (15th) was Burton’s 4th birthday and although we had a small family gathering at tea time where we cut his birthday cake, we actually held his main Room on the Broom party the day before, where his little friends were invited. We kept is simple as owing to the glorious weather we filled some paddling pools and let the children cool off in the water before they ate their food.
 
 
Burton loves the Room On The Broom book and the animated film, so when he agreed that he would like to have this as the theme to his birthday party, I was actually very happy and pleased. I just knew that there would be lots of fun to be had with making a Room on the Broom birthday party and cake.
 

A Room On The Broom Birthday Cake

 The cake was meant to be a cauldron. However,  in the end as I am not good with fondant icing, I decided to stay clear of this idea! Instead after seeing witches hat cupcakes on the internet, I decided to adopt this idea and make it my own and bigger.
 
 

It was actually quite easy to make – it was just such hot weather that it was a race against time to get it decorated and in the fridge before it melted!

 
 
 
 

Room On The Broom Party Food

This was so much fun! Here is what I made:

 
 
 
Place white marshmallow and whole strawberries onto cake pop sticks
 
 
Skewers filled with cheese, grapes, cucumber, tomato and a star shaped potato savoury with a blue straw added to the end of the skewer (as per the Witches wand in the book)
 
 
Simply dip the end of a breadstick in cream cheese and coat with grated cheese (I made some with marmite and grated cheese too)
 
 
Ham and cheese spread sandwitches cut using a witch shaped cookie cutter (the bread bones were same but used a bone shaped cookie cutter)
 
 
These were meant to have lollipop sticks stuck into them but they collapsed! Hence more twirls than whirls!
 
 
Mini jaffa cakes topped with chocolate iced gems
 
 
Jelly (any flavour): add some jelly sweets to your bowl/glass and pour over the jelly and set as normal. I added squidgy mushrooms (aka toadstools) and bones to stick to the ingredients used in the book, by the witch at the end to make the broom
 
 

Cover cornets with melted chocolate and cover with rainbow sprinkles. Then make some cupcakes/muffins (I made chocolate ), top with buttercream and place your chocolate witches hat on top.

*You could just serve the chocolate cornets by themselves as another party food*

  3. Absolutely amazing. Last year was great and so is this. Burton is one lucky little boy. Fantastic, I bet all his little friends were so envious! x

  4. Apart from this party being truly epic and amazing he is very lucky to have such an amazing mum. I don’t need to ask if he had a good party the pictures say it all. Thank you for sharing such a special moment.

    Now my birthday is May 25th ok – I’m free to come to you ;OP xx

  5. The good looks truly fantastic, what a great theme. Burton looks like he is having such fun. I love the party bags too.

  6. Absolutely fabulous birthday celebration dear, I love your catering style. Got surprized on seeing your party celebration. You Should definitely try for party supply business because such lovable themes are demanded by all customers. I have a friend who is a famous party supplier in Australia and provide kids party supplies. Here i am leaving a link below, you must visit it. I’m sure you will find a lot of material of your concern.

  7. It was such an amazing party and you really excelled yourself with all the little added extras and attention to detail. I did think the cake was a stroke of genius and that the witches hat was one of the simplest, but effective ways of decorating it and making it truly identifiable. I also really liked the kebab wands; almost a whole meal in one stick! Thank you for inviting us, we had a brilliant time!

  8. My son’s older now, so not really interested in themed parties, but your witch themed one reminds me of many happy Halloween bashes. Of course, being Halloween the fare was much gorier, but many of the same basic elements applied. The main cake looks wonderful, but I was particularly impressed with the jaffa-cake variation as sooo simple! And the ice-cream cone cupcakes would be a perfect template for a ‘sorting hat’ version if anyone’s planning an HP party 🙂

  9. I’m doing a Room on the Broom party a week Sunday for my daughter and LOVE your kebab wands. Where did you get the star shaped potato savouries from please?

  10. This looks fantastic! My daughter loves the book and the short film so I thought why not do a Room on the Broom birthday party! Was looking for some ideas on google and came across your page! Did you serve anything specific for drinks? X

  11. Thanks for the tips, we’re doing this theme for my sons 4th birthday, fingers crossed it goes as well as yours xx

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
