Four standout treats for the ultimate kids' birthday party dessert table

A 4-tier cake with cookie icing, puffed rice presents, candy-coated cake pops and a smoothie tower should make this the party of the year.

Special birthdays (not to mention very special guests of honour) call for parties that pull out all the stops. This dessert table is nothing short of enchanting. It's made especially for kids, with candy-coated cake pops that are just as bright inside, and tower of small smoothie sippers.

The recipes here are intended for a crowd of up to 24 little ones — everyone would get a mini smoothie, a brownie pop and either a puffed rice present (great for tiny hands) or a regular slice of cake (appreciated by slightly older kids). Or invite fewer, ravenous kiddos who will be happy to hit up this sweets table multiple times during the party.
