5 steps for successful parties

Choose the party theme with the help of the little ones and their great imaginations. A good option is their favorite hobby, such as video games, making bracelets, horseback riding… Then, of course, their favorite superheroes or toys (cars, princesses, animals…) are classic themes that are always a hit. The important thing is that they can participate in the choice!

1. Set the time and date. Make sure their best friends can attend.

2. Decide on the location and adapt the preparation depending on whether it is indoors or outdoors.

3. Make the guest list and send out invitations. Remember to adjust the available space to the number of guests.

4. Prepare the party menu with Cookidoo® and create a shopping list.

5. Start preparing things in advance (decorate the space, prepare gift bags for the guests, make the cold desserts…)

The Perfect Birthday Cake

Thermomix® helps you prepare a homemade cake that looks professional. Just add the ingredients in the right quantities and set the oven to the ideal temperature. In addition to the cake itself, Thermomix® allows you to easily prepare creams, toppings and fillings. Tip: To check if the cake is ready, insert a toothpick in the center of the cake - if it comes out clean, it is ready.

"Read" Your Cakes Like a Pro

Discover the external signs of cakes after baking and learn the reason for mishaps:

The cake that cracks on top - means the cake was placed in the oven in a very high position or the baking temperature was too hot. The cake that "sinks" - you may have opened the oven door too early. The cake that didn't rise - can happen for many reasons: forgetting the rising agent or using expired rising agents, oven not hot enough, batter too whipped... etc.
