Mini Party Cups

Disposable mini shot cups can be found at party supply stores or discount shops such as ‘Red Dot’. They are obviously growing in popularity as more and more places seem to be stocking them. Which is peculiar as I have never seen them used for actual alcoholic drinks. Though, perhaps that is more a reflection of the kind of parties I now go to. I can’t remember the last party I went to that didn’t have a pinata or round of pass the parcel.

These cups are perfect for serving kids party food. The cups measure only 40mm in height. The sweet foods are not only super cute to look at, they make smaller, healthier portion sizes. The best part is all the ingredients are ready made – no cooking required. All cups featured use cream spray on the top. This can be found in the chilled dairy section. The spray needs to be appliedĀ  just before serving as it collapses quickly. Also, some recipes use ‘Yogo’. For non-Australians, this is a flavoured pudding found in the dairy section. (If anyone has a brand local to their area please add it to my comments!)

    Miya, if prepping is required for day before, instead of spray cream, there is a fabulous product available at cake supplies stores called DREAMWHIP. This can be whipped and coloured or left in its raw form. It tastes like icecream and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Awesome stuff!

    Love your ideas :)

    I make these all the time. I use them for dessert or make them as parfeits for breakfast. They are the only desserts served at Seasons 52 which we have here in Florida. They make a great presentation, and, you can control the calories depending on what you put in them.

  3. Wow! These look fabulous ! I am now following you . Hope you will visit and follow me back.

  4. What a neat idea! I love this! I’ve added it to my website Recipe List

    They don’t have lids unfortunately. I guess, on a hot day you would have to bring them out of the freezer just before serving. I’ve never had a problem with them being left on the table for long! Perhaps you could also serve them in a tray of ice??

  6. Molly says:

    These are really cute. How would you suggest keeping they cold during a party? Are there lids or would that look tacky? These would work great for my daughter’s 1st birthday in a few weeks “Ice cream themed”!!

  7. Oh, these are so fun and not to mention YUMMY!!!!
    I must do this at home! :)

    Thanks for linking up to the Sunday Showcase – can’t wait to see what other fun ideas you link up this week! See you tonight for an all new linky party!!


  8. Those look so yummy. Thanks for sharing at my art party.

  9. Loving it! Those are so cute and would be so fun to eat. Best idea ever!!! Thanks for linking up to Sweets for a Saturday.

  10. Very clever…I imagine they would also be great for adults…with liquer poured over a dessert – or even for appetizers or tapas—thanks for the inspiration!

    These are so much fun!!

  13. Use low fat yogurt and lite whipped cream with crispy cereal and I would use them for snacks

  14. These are adorable. I can see doing the same thing with upscale ingredients for a bridal shower or other party.

  15. Sheryl says:

    I LOVE these! I would love it if you came over to my party “Cast Party Wednesday” tomorrow and shared some of your recipes with us.
    I hope to see you there!

  16. Jacqueline says:

    Really fun and I am sure we adults would be wowed by these darling little desserts too. I love all of your variety. I hopped over from Wow Us Wednesday.

    So cute!! I am going to make these for my son’s birthday on Saturday- what a perfect size for the kids!

    I am in Philadelphia, Pa, USA– so here’s what I’m going to use, if you are interested.

    Jello Pudding makes different flavors, so I will use chocolate, strawberry, and cookies and cream. I will also use a lemon pudding for a lemony version. I will also use Redi-whip topping (which is like your cream spray), and Nilla Wafers for the “crushed sweet biscuits”.

    Thanks for the great idea. visiting from Sugar Bee

  18. Lauren says:

    These are just the cutest, yummiest-looking things!! I am pinning this as something to make for our party after our son’s wedding reception with friends and family! It would be so cute and easy and I’m sure the adults will get a kick out of it!

    I just bought mini glasses for the same purpose, I didn’t even realize they have plastic shot glasses. I will have to look if there is a local source because I can think of a million uses. And I love your layered treats above. Thanks for the ideas!
    Funny/weird story, I kept getting hits on my blog on pinterest for a pin to your patriotic jello cup pictured above. I have no idea how it keeps linking to my blog, but it does (that picture is no where on my blog…). Funny that I stumbled upon the original post here.

  22. Stephanie says:

    Oh my goodness these look so delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  23. August says:

  24. This is such a good idea for those children’s parties and snack times. Thank you for sharing this.

  25. Jill says:

    What a brilliant idea! I have a packet of those plastic shot cups I was going to do jelly for a kids party – why stop there – thanks for all these fantastic ideas!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!

I’ve been meaning to set up my FB page but it is on a very long list of things to do!

  30. This is a great idea. Some restaurants here serve dessert shots, but I didn’t realize you could buy disposable shot glasses. I will have to go and look for some.

  31. These are ADORABLE! Perfect for the next bday party or sleepover! (Visiting from Local Fun for Kids)

  32. These are very cute! And so many possibilities…
