Do you have a Disney Princess fan at home? Are you looking for Princess Birthday Party Ideas? Most little girls go through a ‘Princess’ phase. And although it’s always tempting to indulge them in throwing a grand Princess party, I’ve always leaned towards a simpler, cost effective approach to throwing parties. It’s because of this budget mode of thinking that I took something as simple and inexpensive as a jelly dessert, and turned it into this Princess Party Jelly Dessert. All it took was a bit more effort and presentation.
Princess Party Jelly Dessert
My daughter actually wanted a Sleeping Beauty themed party. But most party supplies and decor out there included more than one Disney princess. So we used Sleeping Beauty’s dress colors: pink and blue. But we created a Princess Party theme around that color scheme. So, naturally, the jelly colors had to be pink and blue.
What you need to make your Princess Party Jelly Dessert:
- 2 boxes of Pink jelly
- 2 boxes of Blue jelly
- Plastic champagne flutes
- Disney Princess party wands
- 1 pack of Cotton Candy (or Fairy Floss in Australia)
- Pink or Blue Sprinkles
Steps to make your Princess Party Jelly Dessert:
It is best to prepare this princess party jelly dessert a few days ahead of the party. This allows the jelly to set in layers.
- Prepare the pink jelly according to the package’s directions. Pour it evenly into the champagne flutes. Put these in the fridge until set.
- Once the first layer has set, pop in a Disney princess wand and let it sit just above the pink layer that has set.
- Prepare the blue jelly according to the package’s directions. Pour over the top of the pink layer and let it flow around the princess wand’s stem. Let it set in the fridge. Repeat this step with another pack of pink jelly and another pack of blue jelly. The end result is 4 stripes of pink and blue jelly.
- Just before serving, top the jelly dessert with cotton candy and pink or blue sprinkles. And serve.
- This makes 20-24 champagne flutes of striped pink and blue jelly.
This is such a simple and inexpensive jelly dessert. But with a bit of creativity and some sprinkling of Princess magic, you can create a Princess party jelly dessert that kids will love. And party guests can keep the Disney Princess wands as a party favor.
