In designing the candy table, I wanted the focus to be more on Jacob and not on the Lakers. This party was all about my baby ( and my husband). While the party and table were definitely Laker inspired, I didn't want to go overboard so the only thing that said Lakers was the banner we hung behind the table.
I designed party circles which I used for cupcake picks and lollipops stickers.
I also printed larger circles that I hung from the ceiling, made into centerpieces and put out in the from lawn to welcome guests.
Cupkits Edible Creations made an awesome Rice Krispy basketball cake. Everyone loved how the ball's texture looked so real.
Cupkits also made Ube cupcakes. Ube is a popular Filipino dessert made of taro ( similar to Hawaii's poi).
I made white chocolate crunch basketball pops and hard candy pops, purple and yellow striped cupcakes, giant dipped marshmallows, mini white chocolate cupcakes and dipped pretzel sticks.
The candy table also included Jell-O, , blueberry wafer sticks, lemon bites, lemon drops, dark chocolate Kisses, golden Oreos and polvoron ( a Filipino candy).
I don't usually have pinatas at my party. I never understood the concept of loving a character so much that you'd have children whack it to its destruction. For this party, I stickers with the rival teams' logos crossed out and stuck them onto a basketball shaped pinata. Now doesn't it make more sense to beat the rival teams' logos than that of the Lakers?
