To help set the scene, there were mason jars filled with radioactive rods (i.e., glow sticks), real laboratory beakers containing Potion No. 6 test tube favors, and essential books in every mad scientist's library.
Inspired by the invitation, Loan, a full-time pharamacist and part-time "Ace of Cakes", created this phenomenal 2 tier red velvet cake. We loved all of the clever details that went into the cake, from the bubbling flask, mortar and pestle, book of potions, and spilling test tube, down to the lab rats pleading for help.
Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from Happy Eatery were topped with my handmade toppers and displayed on the custom cupcake stand.
Our gummy worm and brain cultures grew in Jello petri dishes overnight in the refrigerator.
Guests rotated to various experimenting stations when they arrived. Our mad scientists demonstrated how to blow up balloons with baking soda and vinegar, make instant snow in the middle of July, and how to create a vortex using 2 plastic soda bottles connected with a tornado tube.
Diane from Mad Science entertained the audience with her high-energy experiments. At the end, the kids concocted glittery, slippery slime for their take home projects.
No mad science party is complete without some dry ice.
And for the grand finale, you got to have Diet Coke and Mentos geysers -- a real crowd pleaser for all ages. Thanks to the record breaking heat, our geysers reached record heights!
The budding mad scientists took home their goodies in these decorative bags.
