We have a new series here on SMP Living: Party Ideas. Totally comprehensive, totally executed ideas that you can steal right from our blog and put into some serious action. Because like the rest of you, we are party throwing junkies and we're always looking for chic, fabulous, utterly adorable ideas that will knock the socks off your guests. Enter: A Sprinkles Party. Inspired by this here cake (which we didn't copy nearly as well as the original but we still sort of love our version), we took the concept of Sprinkles and ran circles around it. Click here to see the whole she-bang.

The Sprinkles Cake. It's just your basic in a box funfetti cake with a white icing and slammed with more sprinkles than a girl could ever want. Next time, we'll freeze the cake, layer on the frosting, chill again, then roll in the sprinkles. Ours look a little like fringe which wasn't the look we were going for but hey, who cares!? It's freaking adorable!

Cheesecake Cones. They look like ice cream but stand up to room temperatures like champs. Plus they are absurdly delicious. With chocolate or a simple glaze dripped over the top and decked out with sprinkles.

Cake Pops. I mean, obviously! We cheated and bought ours at stabucks then added a few sprinkles to suit the party. Little cheat-cuts are the only way that you will survive set up and make it to wardrobe.

Miniature Milkshakes. We dipped our glasses in melted white chocolate and then in sprinkles. Filled to the brim with a basic Vanilla milkshake. We keep the shake frozen until we were ready to use, then filled the chilled glasses. They lasted quite a while at room temp too!

Champagne & Strawberry Jello Square. Technically jello shots, but please. We aren't in college anymore. We're sophisticated and we like our jello shots cubed! So we filled a small pan with our jello mixture then layered on the sprinkles. Big mistake. They melted into the jello turning it a funny shade of black. So, naturally, we layered more on top. And it looked cute enough. If we were having a do-over, we'd let the jello set then toss on those bad boys.

Ice Cream Sandwiches: We upped the cute factor by using Pizzelles, filling them with softened vanilla ice cream then rolling them in sprinkles. Easy peasy!
