castle cake or princess cupcakes. In addition to the cake, you may want to plan specific party food to match the theme of your party.

The princess party food you choose can be sweet (brownies, ice cream) or can healthy (fruit or veggie arrangements). Whatever you decide to serve, remember appearance is everything. The serving dishes you use add to the appearance. For example, tea cups filled with lemonade and tea plates with mini cookies or finger sandwiches enhance the princess mood.
Now that you have decided on serving dishes, let me tell you about some of our favorite princess party foods.
Nothing says princess like a chocolate fountain. This is one princess party food that will be raved about by the guests. It is unique, delicious and fun. Fountains can be rented, but they are pretty inexpensive, so purchasing one is probably a more cost effective solution. Make sure that you follow the instructions for type of chocolate to use, as well as the chocolate heating instructions. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate can all be used in a fountain.
There are a variety of delicious foods that can be dipped in a chocolate fountain. Some of the popular choices are strawberries, apple slices, bananas, cookies (wafer varieties are yummy), brownie bites, large marshmallows and pretzel rods. With the exception of the pretzel rods, everything else should be placed on the end of a skewer. This is an activity that should be supervised to keep the mess to a minimum and ensure fingers are kept out of the chocolate.
Helpful hints: Make sure you set up the fountain in an area that is not in danger of staining if chocolate is spilled (some probably will be).Fondue
If a chocolate fountain doesn’t work for you, there is always chocolate fondue. Fondue pots are common. Supervision is needed for this one too since fondue pots can be hot. If using chocolate, it can be melted in the microwave with the same effect.
You can dip all of the foods that would work with a chocolate fountain in the fondue pot.Princess Sandwiches
If you are serving lunch, sandwiches are a good menu item. But don’t just serve the sandwich in the usual way. Instead, use a cookie cutter to cut it in a princess shape. Hearts, crowns, carriages, glass slippers, dresses and lips are all common cookie cutter shapes that can be used to make a plain sandwich into a princess sandwich.Princess Cookies
Any princess cookie cutter can be used to make sugar cookies. Make sure to decorate the cookies or as a party activity, let the guests decorate their own cookies. If you do the decorating, the cookies can be princess party food or a great addition to the princess party favor bag.Princess Brownies
Brownies are an often overlooked princess party food that can be shaped and decorated. Cookie cutters or cupcake shapes can be used with brownies too. Ice Cream
Ice cream is always popular party food. Make sure to serve it as beautifully as your princess deserves. There are some darling ice cream topping carousels that bring style to the party.
Another option is to pound in your own toppings, much like some popular ice cream parlors do. Make sure your ice cream is pretty solid and you have a clean working area it can be contained in. Your guests will have fun requesting their own special order.Candy Apples
Candy apples are another great party food idea. They can be a little large for small guests, so an alternative would be to dip apple slices in caramel or in chocolate. This might be more manageable for some young guests.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries can be prepared before the party to be eaten as party food, or can be prepared by guests as a party activity.
Make sure to use the right kind of chocolate or you may need to add some vegetable oil. My favorite chocolate is the Pound Plus sold at Trader Joes’. Break it into pieces and melt in the microwave by heating for 30 seconds, stirring and then repeating until the chocolate is melted. Dip the strawberries and place on a piece of wax paper. White chocolate can also be dribbled on top to add a fancier look.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Dipping pretzel rods in chocolate or caramel and then chocolate is fun to do. You can drizzle white chocolate on top for a fancier princess food. Place them in bags and tie with a fancy ribbon and they can be added to your princess party favor bag.
Fruit kebabs can be a fun party food. Provide skewers for guests and then let them fill them with their favorite fruits. Make sure to supervise this activity since the skewers are sharp. This may not be the best idea for very young guests.
An edible fruit arrangement is another great idea for princess party food. Fruit is healthy and the aesthetics will make it a pleasing food choice.
Similar to the fruit arrangement, the veggie arrangement is healthy and can be presented in a way that enhances your princess party theme.
Planning a morning party? Why not try princess pancakes for a breakfast or brunch. Use your favorite pancake mix and princess cookie cutters to create the desired shapes. Plan on fun pancake toppings, like chocolate chips, strawberries or whip cream.
Chocolate pizza is fun to make, but it does take a while to set. If preparing the chocolate pizza is a party activity, make sure to do it when the guests arrive and plan on serving it near the end of the party. (Hint: do not make it too thick or it won’t be done in time.)
Melt your favorite chocolate (try Trader Joes’ Pound Plus Chocolate). Pour a thin layer of chocolate in a pie pan. Add your favorite toppings, such as chocolate chips, nuts, raisons, mint chips, coconut and marshmallows. Finish by drizzling melted white chocolate on top. Place in a cool place to allow the chocolate to harden again.
These are some of our favorite princess party food ideas. Decide what to serve based on the tastes of your princess and on the theme of the party. But remember, no matter what you serve, make sure it looks like food a princess would eat.
