True movie lovers often enjoy the chance to get together with friends and enjoy a good flick, and a movie party combines the best of both worlds. A well-decorated, clever cake can be an eye-catching conversation piece at a Hollywood movie party, and there's no better place to be imaginative and inventive. Here's how to unleash your inner Steven Spielberg and dazzle your party guests with delightful confections made to resemble iconic Hollywood screen items.
Movie Reel Cake
The circular shape of a movie reel can lends itself perfectly to a standard round cake pan. Frost the cake with a buttercream icing blended with ivory and black food colouring to create the grey reel colour. Place Oreo cookies on the top of the cake in a circle for the film reel holes, and wrap long strips of fruit leather around the cake's sides and loosely onto the table to mimic the film strip coming off the reel.
Movie Clapboard Cake
A sheet cake decorated frosted in dark chocolate and iced to resemble a clapboard is sure to add an air of Hollywood fantasy to the party. Use a quarter-sheet cake pan to make the body of the clapper. Create an open clapper by baking an additional long vertical slice and placing it on a diagonal at the top of the cake. Frost the top of the cake and the clapper with alternating white and chocolate frosting. Fill a piping bag with white icing to create the "film's" production grid, such as "Director," "Date," "Scene," and "Take" using your party's particulars as the details. Serve on a silver platter.
Hollywood Walk of Fame Cake
The sidewalks of Hollywood are adorned with the names of Hollywood greats; the thousands of sidewalk stars are as iconic as the movies themselves. Bake a star-shaped cake and let it cool. Ice the cake with a buttercream frosting created from gold powdered food colouring mixed with yellow food powder (see Resource section.) Use a piping bag filled with chocolate frosting to create the name of a guest of honour or a favourite film across the top of the star. Draw a circle in the middle of the cake and then create a film, radio or TV icon to suggest a star on the real Walk of Fame.
