While throwing a bash at home is a more intimate way to go, there are also boatloads of places offering themes and party packages that are decorated, hosted and cleaned up by others.


COOKIE COUSINS Create your party favors and eat them, too. At Cookie Cousins’ cookie party, kids color bakery boxes, then roll, stamp and bake cookies, and finally decorate their treats with colorful icing. Seriously, it’s one of the cutest and newest places to have an impressive party. 2322 Edgewater Dr., College Park 407-420- 7940 www.thecookiecousins.com


Chocolate-Covered Birthday Party


When it comes to rich, creamy, tasty birthday dreams … the darker, the better, we always say. Farris and Foster’s Chocolate Factory in Baldwin Park is the pinnacle locale for your sweet’s next birthday bash.


Donning chef hats and aprons, chocoholics-to-be try out their foodie fodder as they circulate throughout the factory. Selecting from gummies, cookies, Rice Krispies Treats and sprinkles, they’ll make their own chocolate-covered cookies. Second stop: the marshmallow plunge. After they’ve dipped and swirled and covered yummy delights, it’s back to the stainless steel (aka hyper-sanitary) worktable to decorate a generous-sized slice of chocolate pizza.


Take it home or crack into the box early, and take their taste buds for a delectable delight. The staff at Farris and Foster’s guide the pint-sized partygoers, helping the entire way, so there’s less need to worry about chocolate-covered kids after the affair is over. If you’re looking for a unique and delish birthday party, Farris and Foster’s really takes the cake … um, we mean chocolate! 4875 New Broad St., Baldwin Park 407-770- 1607 www.farrisandfosters.com
