We’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to, trawling this here Internet for some of the best Olympic-themed party recipes out there. So grab your pinny and get that oven on; this week’s blog is an absolute corker. If we do say so ourselves.
Okay, so this isn’t the British flag – but there’s no reason why you can’t have a go at the cake (above) and recreate the layout with a union flag theme. Use raspberries and blueberries for decoration and tuck right in!

Light Up the Festivities
It isn’t all about food, you know…
Reminiscent of fiery Olympic torches, these cocktails – via Rachel Ray Mag are bound to get people talking. They look great and taste it too; a mixture of fruit, limoncello and soda, they pack a fiery punch on the old taste buds. Like the look of them? Click the link above and get to grips with the recipe.
Grab a Pizza the Olympic Action
A party wouldn’t be quite the same without some savoury food choices, now would it? And this idea – via babycenter.com – is a real winner. Easy to make and effective in appearance, veg and other food items can be prepared in Olympic ‘rings’ on a pizza base or garlic bread and served as is.
With hardly any preparation time, this is a great choice when time is poor. Bung it in the oven and serve when your guests arrive. Failing that, why not arrange raw tomatoes, gherkins and other nibbles in a similar way but on individual plates? These can then be paired with dips or just eaten on their own – simple!
Got guests staying the night? You could treat them to an Olympic-themed breakfast in the morning too, thanks to this simple pancake recipe via Food Network. All you need is a little food colouring and voila!
