Hooray! Our “tiny HUGE” party was a huge success! What a fun time!

And for dessert: a giant Oreo!

IMG_8803 (750x563)

The cookie was made using a box of Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix, but with a little less water to make the texture less cake-y and more like a cookie. The filling was powdered sugar, vegetable shorting, and vanilla extract. We calculated the calorie total for the entire giant Oreo and it was just over 5,000 calories!

In addition to tiny and HUGE food, we also had a tiny and HUGE-themed playlist, which included songs with titles or lyrics related to anything big or small, such as “Big Pumpin’,” “Small Town Girl,” “Baby Got Back,” “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” and “Tiny Dancer.” It was a fun addition to the party!

CrossFit 781 friends!

Our friend Kim baked a huge (birthday) Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake as well as mini Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcakes, which were eaten in about 30 seconds. They were so delicious!

Happy birthday, Kerrie!

We ended up partying late into the evening, which included a Flip Cup competition (guys versus girls) and chowing down on chicken enchiladas.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s party!

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite tiny or HUGE food?



  1. Great ideas for the tiny huge party–looks like everyone had a great time and got into the theme!

    My favorite tiny food is the dark chocolate covered cacao nibs (I forget the company that makes them, but Trader Joe’s has a knock-off version that’s awesome). 🙂

  2. what an awesome theme! I would have never thought of that.

    It would have been fun to play a little dress up with tiny girl clothes and baggy big mens clothes where the men tried on tank tops and the ladies tried on big pants.

  3. That party looks absolutely awesome!! What a fun and such a unique idea. I’m lovin’ the tomato, mozzarella, basil skewer and the big burger actually looks very yummy. It’ll be hard to top that one.

  4. I absolutely love the theme of this party– how creative. Glad the gathering was a success. Your friends and family seem like such a lovely, fun group of people.

  5. Oh my gosh, your party looks like so much fun, everyone went all out!

    My favorite giant food is definately a giant Cabury (my favorite brand) chocolate bar my family brought me back from london.
    And by giant I mean GIANT, the only place it fits is above my refrigerator!

  6. I love the burgers – I cannot believe you guys were able to make that!

    For a party last summer my brother and his friend made a “Big Mac Meatloaf” – basically, a meatloaf so huge it was stuffed with 8 Big Macs. There was 30-40 people at the party and they still went home with leftovers.

  7. We always host a party during the holidays and I may have to steal your idea this year! It looks so fun!!

  8. Great party! Love the idea! All food looks delicious! I’m curious how old your Murphy is?

    My favorite tiny food is/are: M&M’s (peanut) and ‘huge’ food: gallon of Moose track ice cream…;)

  9. Looks like a fantastic party although I was a little disappointed to not see any tiny and huge condiments. Whenever I was away as a kid I used to always take to mini ketchup, tabasco, and mustard bottles they serve when you order room service 😉

    Was the hamburger bun paleo bread?

  10. I almost bought that dress from Target this weekend. If I am not mistaken, I also have a tank top and pair of shoes just like one of your friends is wearing in the photos(purplish tank and pink shorts with the sandals) that came from Target. Gotta love that place.

    I am dying over that HUGE Oreo cookie!! Did it taste similar to one?

  11. LOVE how this theme turned out and how everyone got into it – besides the obviously awesome huge burgers (and love that the buns were homemade! ha) I thought the tiny and huge Caprese skewers were hilarious – loved the Huge one.

  12. That oreo is so cool! Did you and Mal make it? The burgers are also amazing! Have you seen the “Pimp my Snack” ? you have to check it out!!! Lots of HUGE snacks…coolest are the Cadbury Cream Eggs and Mars Bars…so much detail people go to but that oreo deserves to be up there!
