Cinco de Mayo – Dessert Taco Bar

What’s better than a taco bar? Well, for me not much, but for the kids (especially Hudson), this dessert taco bar was everything! I came across the cutest printables from The Littles and Me that I just knew I had to use. When another friend, Maggie at Just Create Today, posted the cutest oreo cookie tacos I knew I needed to make a dessert taco bar. I just used food coloring and shredded coconut to make the cheese and lettuce, a smashed up chocolate cupcake for the meat and mini red m&m’s for the tomatoes. The hardest part was actually cutting the golden oreos in half – they kept breaking. For all the exact details and instructions on making the tacos, check out this post on Just Create Today. Then I set-up a little taco bar and let the kids get to work assembling their tacos.

Hudson was really into it and Luc just wanted to eat everything, so he grabbed a taco shell and went to town on the “meat.” The tacos looked so realistic and this was a really fun activity for us to do together. None of us are fans of coconut (if I think of a substitute, I will let you know, but it just looks so realistic that we had to include it) so we just scooped our toppings off before eating our tacos and they were delicious!

The next night, for Cinco de Mayo I re-used my taco bar sign and we had my family over for tacos, margaritas and the rest of the chocolate cupcakes. Earlier in the week I came across a Cinco de Mayo box in the garage that had all sorts of cool things in it from a party I threw back in college (hoarding for the win!). I found the cutest little drink charms that also worked perfect as cupcake toppers. The best find though was a Fiesta Playlist. There were a few gems on it that made me smile like Macarena and Livin’ la Vida Loca and the boys and I had a blast dancing around the house together.

It was also National Scrapbooking Day this weekend, so I scored some new digital scrapbooking products at a great price and quickly created a fun scrapbook page of our Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
