Pac-Man Party Supplies

by Janet21

Waka Waka Waka! It is time for a birthday party featuring Pac-Man and the ghosts.

I remember my sister and I playing Pac-Man for hours at a time on our Atari game station. Today, video games are much more advanced, however, I still love the 80s games I played during my childhood and Pac-Man is definitely one of them!

While the classic Pac-Man game is still hugely popular, the re-release of newer games is allowing this classic to live on through future generations.

If you or your child are a big fan of the little yellow guy, this page will provide everything you will need to host a Pac-Man birthday party. I have included supplies for both the classic Pac-Man as well as the modern Pac-Man.

This page features personaiized invitations, party favors, decorations, cake & cupcake supplies and more.

Please visit my Retro 80s Party Supplies for more party supplies which you can incorporate into your celebration.

Easy Pac Man Cupcakes

Fondant ~ Paper Cupcake Toppers ~ Edible Toppers

pacmancupcakesOne way to create cute Pac Man cupcakes is to use regular baking liners such as you see pictured here.   These cupcakes were originally meant to look like hearts, but as you can see clearly look like Pac Man.   Simply fill your liners with cake batter and then gently pinch in the liner to make Pac Man's mouth.  Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled, decorate with yellow frosting.

Another easy way to make Pac Man cupcakes is to top them with fondant.  Purchase yellow fondant and using a cirlce cookie cutter, cut circles out of the fondant.  Then using a sharp knife, cut a small triangle out of one side of the circle to make the mouth.   Make Pac Man's eye with a edible black marker or icing.  Place your fondant Pac Mans on top of your frosted cupcakes. That's it!

If you are looking to save a bit of time, there are Ebay sellers that sell edible cupcake images and premade paper cupcake toppers.   These cupcake decorations would be a fun way to create awesome treats for your celebration.

Another Cool Pac Man Cake Idea

pacmancakeI love this Pac Man cake, too.  And like the other cake ideas featured here, it would not be too difficult to make.  Even if you are not an experienced cake decorator, I think you could do this.

Simply bake your cake in a round cake pan and frost it with yellow icing.  Then using black icing pipe an image of Pac Man onto your cake including the eye.
