Sensational Sweets generously provided me with a yummy assortment of goodies to share with my son's guests at his 3rd birthday party.  For the party we received 9 Pretzel Rods,  one dozen small bags of Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn,  1 large bag of drizzled popcorn,  and 3 Let's Celebrate Birthday Cakes.  I was amazed when I saw the huge box followed by a smaller box and as soon as I opened it I was even more amazed.  The items all looked nicely packaged and seemed to be of nice quality.  I would soon discover just how high quality they were!

At the party we placed the 9 Pretzel Rods on one of the treat tables,   and the  Drizzled Popcorn on the other treat table. The Pretzel Rods were wrapped in clear plastic and tied with a pretty little bow,  perfect for a party treat or favor although we let guests help themselves to them as they pleased.  We handed out the bags of Drizzled Popcorn to the adults shortly before the party ended but it just so happened that the guests couldnt help themselves so many of them tore into their popcorn before they left.  By the time they had left their bags ended up empty!  A couple of the guests raved that it was the best popcorn they have ever ate.  Another one told me that they don't usually care to much for chocolate but they loved it on the popcorn.  Overall,  I thought it was very tasty but it should come with a warning sign - once you eat one you can't stop!

Although,  I didn't get a chance to make the cakes for the party I sure put them to use.  I handed out a couple of them as favors and saved the other one to make on his actual birthday since we hosted his party a week ahead of time.  It worked out very well because other than the Let's Celebrate Cake we would have been cakeless on his actual birthday.  I let my kids help my make the cake and it actually provided us with a very fun and tasty experience. 

The Let's Celebrate Celebration Cake contains everything you need for a mini birthday cake.  I guess I should also mention that it is the easiest cake I have ever made in my life!  This kit contains a cake mix, frosting mix, cup to mix the frosting in and add the water with, a mini spoon, balloon,  sprinkles, blowout,  and even a candle!

We emptied out the cake mix into the container and began stirring it with the small plastic spoon inluded in the kit.  After a couple minutes when all the lumps were out we placed it in the microwave for  1 minute,  yes only one minute!  While the cake was cooling,  we combined the icing mix with a few teaspoons of water using the small spoon and stirred it up in the small cup that was included.  Within about five minutes the cake was cool and ready to ice, so we poured the icing on top and used the spoon to smooth it over.  We sprinkled the yellow sprinkles on top and topped it off with a blowout and a candle. We lit the candle and all sang "Happy Birthday" to my son while he blew out the candle.  After he was able to play with the blowout and balloon that was included in the kit.
