It is not too late to have a cocktail and dessert party for the 2012 Summer Olympic Opening Ceremony! Here are some ideas that you can pull together really fast.
How about an Olympic Gold Cocktail? Put edible gold flakes or gold stars around the rim of your martini glass or any cocktail glass. Go here for the recipe for the yummy drink above.
Or how about floating some edible gold in your champagne?
Now for the sweets! Olympic ring cookies are so cute and easy to make, you can go here for the above recipe, or use my sugar cookie recipe here and then use any store bought white icing and put colored sprinkles on top.
If you don't have time to bake, you could pick up some cupcakes from your local store and make your own Olympic rings with decorating icing.
Olympic torch popcorn cones are so cute! You could use buttered popcorn for a break from the sweets or caramel corn if you have a real sweet tooth.
Or put some leftover gold flakes over the top of white popcorn.
Bowls of M&M's are a festive and decorative treat to put around the house...take out the orange ones if you want the correct Olympic ring colors.
Now sit back with your Olympic gold cocktail and your Olympic torch popcorn and let the games begin!
