On September 27, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 hits theaters. Though we're excited to see the imaginative food creatures Flint discovers on a mysterious island, we still can't forget Mother Nature's massive food fight in the first film. We love soaring meatballs, but don't worry — you won't need an umbrella to enjoy this party. With just a few simple touches, your tasty rainstorm will be ready to go!
This party theme wouldn't be complete without meatballs, now would it? Well, believe it or not, these meatballs are actually cake pops! This sweet spin on a classic appetizer is fun, tasty and easier to create than you might think. Simply roll cake pops in nuts, drizzle with jam and frosting, and top each one off with a fork.
Ice cream raindrops
In the first film, it doesn't rain cats and dogs; instead, it rains hamburgers and ice cream. Keeping this "falling from the sky" theme in mind, these upside-down ice cream cone cupcakes are a perfect fit. Even better, they're simple to make.
Drenched with goodness
Marshmallows just keep getting bigger, don't they? But we're not complaining. We think jumbo-size marshmallows are the best things since sliced bread. To make these drizzly sweets, simply dip each marshmallow in Smucker's Magic Shell toppings, add sprinkles and almond slices, and then allow them to chill in the refrigerator before serving.
The finishing touches
Have some fun with your food shower by covering your serving table with piles of candy. Tuck treats like donuts, cookies and brownie bites throughout the candy stacks, to make the food display appear as a heaping mess. Then, as an extra detail, string small bundles of gray helium balloons over your table setting to achieve the look of clouds.
