27 Mustache Bash

27 Mustache Bash is a party dedicated to all the husbands out there who need a bit of TLC!

I planned to have just a few people over after church and needless to say it was a bit more work than I thought. I have been planning to have this Mustache bash for a while now and the guest of honor deserved every bit of detail I put into it. It is easy buying everything at the store and certainly very convenient (that went through my mind a few times halfway through), but I like a good challenge. I always feel that I can get my rest and sanity back a bit later. Once I get into the groove of baking or being creative really, I don’t stop for anything. Thanks to my Nespresso for keeping me going otherwise I would not have made it.

I went back to my roots by making marmite tart into cake pops, mini milk tarts, and biltong muffins. A Bit of a modern twist if you will! I remember these goodies as an after church treat. How I love the textures of savory and sweet mixed in one bite. Thanks to those days I have my taste buds fully developed! Those kinds of dished are a taste of home. A great example is the apple cider and bacon bits donuts I made. You can taste that actual effort was put into this one bite treat!
Did you know that Moustache is a UK translation whilst Mustache is American?
I have really been in a school of my own these last two and a half years. I have been exploring the boundaries of cooking and other aspects. Lately, I have been making more vegan cakes and it’s so fun! I have always loved eating healthy and it’s just so inspiring to actually put it into practice! (none of that for the party, though, my hubby likes real ice cream, no banana nice cream will do the trick!) Hopefully I’ll be able to apply my knowledge with the type of job I’ll have one day… one that explores all this creative energy and drives to create. I have learned to just be true to who you are and man oh man, you’ll reach mountains!
Now DIY wise I hopped over to Pinterest and wanted to do something manly, coz any other way would have been a bit awkward. Now with my husband having his birthday every year, I figured why not make the theme this year a bit more fun…I celebrated a mustache just this one time because it was his birthday. This party was my white flag to facial hair!
img_9203Voila!! I was greeted by so many baby shower ideas…(don’t tell my husband heeheee) So I thought why not, it’s cute, manly and versatile. I made a few pop ups cards here and there that I placed around the table as you can see in the pics
I especially love the one pop up that says: Real men eat cupcakes…
I used old Mustache material as a table runner. I made a 27-year pin board out of paper pins and some string. I place some flowers as a feminine touch for the lady guests (I found proteas…I love them)!
Now after cooking, there is the cleanup…Everything should be easy afterward you host such a bash. Now that means that mostly everything can and should be able to be thrown away. I made the runner out of brown paper, served out of plastic plates & plastic canapé forms and wooden cutlery. There were plastic paper cups for the coffee/drink area. Clean up was a dream for my ever so sore feet and back, mostly no dishes and the birthday boy helped to clean the floors. His actual birthday was two days later so I didn’t feel too bad!!

This pre-party rocket, it’s so easy to do once you know what your game plan is. I used to dread having people over, but going DIY and one bite snack table is the way to go for me. I am sold! You’ll make it look super easy throwing your better half a party he deserves… Mustache tell you the truth!

Ingredients 

  • 2L chocolate ice cream
  • 1L vanilla or toffee ice cream
  • 1 packet of kit kat pops or whispers
  • 1 can of de-pitted cherries
  • Caramel sauce
  • Sprinkles

Ice cream cones

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp butter

Method

  1. Remove the chocolate ice cream from the tub into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave until the ice cream is semi-soft and easy to mix.
  2. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of the kit kat balls and 1 cup cherries.
  3. Pour into the mould that you choose and top off with the Bakers butter biscuits or any shortbread (this makes it look like actual ground that the scoop fell on).
  4. Scoop out the vanilla ice cream and do the same until the ice cream is soft and pliable. Scoop into a mould and let it set in the refrigerator.
  5. To ensemble the cake just before serving: Remove both moulds from the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for about five to ten minutes, this will make the cakes easy to remove from the moulds.
  6. Remove the cakes from the moulds and start by layering your chocolate as the first layer then placing the vanilla “scoop” on top add the cone and drizzle over the caramel that descales down to the one side. Add sprinkles and other decoration that you prefer.
    This looks like an ice cream that fallen down on the ground
  7. Serve immediately or place in the fridge till serving.

Ice-cream cones 

  1. Whisk together the egg whites, sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt together.
  2. Whisk in the flour and the butter together.
  3. Heat up a pan dollop a bit of butter in it (1/2 tbsp butter).
  4. Dollop about 2 tbsp of the dough in the pan and swirl it around.
  5. Let it cook through (by making bubbles as it cooks)it takes about 3 minutes on each side until brown.
  6. Remove from the heat and immediately place on to paper towels to fold into a cone form, pinch together the base for no leaks.
