Do you Crowdtap?? You should!! They sent me this super fun party kit in celebration of the new Madagascar 3 Europe’s Most Wanted movie that is in theaters now! Click that link back there to see how cute this new movie looks!!
Well, Crowdtap sent me this awesome party pack to have fun with at home. This is what I received in my pack
- A crack-a-lackin recipe for Marty’s zebra cake
- A classic game with a “mad” twist featuring Gloria
- Decorations, masks and face paint ideas to get everyone into the Madagascar mood
- Fun activities and games to keep the party movin’
The girls, my precious Alice and her precious cousin April, had a lot of fun playing Pin The Tail on Gloria!
The girls loved working on the different activities they included in the party kit.
I think I spy Marty back on the sofa!! They sent us some Connect The Dot pages, Tic Tac Toe games, and a few fun mazes too. There were a couple of Find the Difference scenes that we didn’t print but the girls had fun finding the differences on the laptop. The party kit also included instructions on face painting and printable masks. We printed out a couple of the masks and the girls had fun playing in them.
This one is Gloria relaxing!
These would be the party crashers!!
There were also some fun cut out decorations that we put up.
MY personal favorite part of the kit was the recipe for Marty’s Zebra Cake.
Doesn’t it look great!? I’m posting the recipe for y’all. You have to try it! It’s delicious and looks awesome too!!
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Oil
1 cup Milk
1/3 teaspoon Vanilla Powder ( I think this may be a typo I used Vanilla Extract and it came out fine!)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and sugar until creamy and light in color. Add milk and oil, and continue beating until well blended. Add vanilla extract to the mixture. Gradually add flour and then beat until the batter is smooth. Divide the mixture into 2 equal portions. Keep one portion plain. Add cocoa powder into another and mix well. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease the baking pan with oil.
The most important part is assembling the cake batter in a baking pan. Scoop 3 heaped tablespoons ( I used an ice cream scooper and it worked perfectly!!) of plain batter into the middle of the baking pan. Then scoop 3 tablespoons of cocoa batter and pour it in the center on top of the plain batter. If you’re careful you should find concentric circles of alternating colors forming in the tray. Repeat until all the mixture is used. I did this slowly giving each scoop time to settle a little bit.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
I think it came out great!
We ended our night eating our Marty’s Zebra Cake and watching the first Madagascar movie. The girls LOVED our Madagascar party!! We’ve decided we are taking them to see Madagascar 3 next weekend.
