Freeable baking/finger food kids party?

da_kerbsta1, May 4, 9:49pm
Hey guys, am throwing a 'kiddies' themed party for my partner next week, and need some ideas and memories for economical finger food for a 90's kids party, not the healthy stuff they have today.
So far I was thinking cocktail sausages and sauce, fairy bread, sausage rolls, and bowls of lollies and chip and dippies.
The party is 2 weeks away and I'm in a baking mood, what are some economical treats I can make and freeze half of?

Small picklets to top with butter and hundreds and thousands, small meringues coloured with food colouring, small savoury tarts with egg, cheese, bacon, chives etc. - boys always seem to go for those, gingerbreadmen or animals depending on your range of cookie cutters

You have to have iced animal biscuits! They were always my favourite. What about russian fudge?

and how are those foods different from what kids have at parties today lol? ...
... mini pizzas, cupcakes (at miss to-be-5s party I'm getting the kids to decorate the cupcakes before eating)...

Cars, buy a party pack of little milkyway bars or moros or what ever he likes, melt chocolate to use to glue pebbles on the sides as wheels and poke a little tiny teddy biscuit in the top as the driver.

Mmm butterfly cakes! Not many people make them anymore. I remember fairy bread, chocolate eclairs, twisties from the 80s! Gotta have chocolate eclairs! I do traffic light jellies for my kids which are pretty old school - use a plastic wine cup (the squat ones) and put a cocktail umbrella in top and they look awesome :)
