A waffle bar birthday party

Waffles are a breakfast favorite in our house, so when my sweet girl turned seven, of course she requested a waffle-making party (a little Leslie Knope in the making). We set up a waffle bar on our huge dining table and let the birthday girl and her friends go to town. It was a blast!

To get waffles that were both awesome-tasting and would hold up to the onslaught of treats that was about to cover them, I used my rectangular waffle maker and my secret waffle-making trick of spraying the maker with PAM Cooking Spray to get a crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside perfect waffle every time.

We set up the table with the waffles stacked on my favorite dessert tray and set out a few different topping spots. Frosting, powered sugar, syrup and about 10 different types of sprinkles.

Let’s just say there wasn’t a plain waffle in sight. I love how much my girl loves breakfast food, and setting up this waffle bar was a completely fun and indulgent way to turn seven years old.

Spray the waffle maker with Pam for perfect waffles every time!

When PAM asked me to review their spray and talk about how it saves time, I knew exactly what to share. We have used PAM Cooking Spray to create crispy, perfect waffles for years, so it seemed like a perfect fit. Creating a waffle party for my daughter and her 10 closest friends could have felt overwhelming, but knowing how to make the perfect waffles left me plenty of time for floating marbled balloons and popping the lenses out of Dollar Store glasses to create adorable, library-inspired favor bags.

When you use PAM, you spend less time cleaning up in the kitchen, allowing for more time to be spent with the ones you love. Bonus? PAM Cooking Spray leaves 99% less residue than leading brands of margarine or bargain-brand sprays, so your dishes will turn out great and you’ll spend less time cleaning up.
