When you’re hosting a mermaid party you want to make sure the buffet table looks amazing. Luckily, there are loads of great mermaid food ideas that are easy to make. We’ve picked some of our favourites so you can make your mermaid party the best ever.
Mermaid dive cupcakes
These mermaid cupcakes look really impressive but are actually pretty easy to do yourself. Either make and ice or buy some ready iced cupcakes. Then use a mermaid tail mould to shape some fondant icing so your mermaid will look like it is diving into your sea cupcake.
Expand on the under the sea party theme with these friendly starfish cookies. Topped with icing and sprinkles and then finished with edible eyes, these little buddies will be snapped up.
Also perfect for an under the sea party, these clamshell cookies have a hidden pearl surprise. Just bake(or buy) your favourite cookies, then sandwich with some frosting and add an edible pearl.
These dainty pastry beauties might be best left to the professionals, especially if you have a lot of guests to cater for. The mini eclairs and little works of art, with pastel icing and pretty shells, delicately painted. So good, you might not be able to eat them!
Mer-mazing ice cream
This mermaid ice cream will make a great frozen treat if you’re having a summer party. The recipe is easy and included in the link below the picture. Go all out with chocolate and sprinkle dipped cones to make it party ready.
Octopus veg tray
Serve up some healthy snacks for your guests that can still fit the theme with this fun octopus veg dip tray. Using a pepper and some edible eyes with pepper tentacles, your guests can enjoy their under the sea theme veg.
These tasty wraps fit the theme with a ‘seaweed’ filling. Use spinach for that deep green colour and whatever other tasty fillings that your guests will love. Cream cheese, tomato, smoked salmon or chicken are some of our favourites that would go perfectly with spinach.
A big carved watermelon makes an impressive feature on a buffet table. This one is carved in the shape of a shark mouth and filled with soft fruits and melon cut into sea-themed shapes.
These cute little milkshakes are easy to DIY. Use card stock to make seahorses and then stick to mini milk bottles. Pop in a pastel paper straw and your guests have a lovely mermaid theme drink.
