Do you remember sitting in the back seat of your parent’s car and seeing a big drive-in movie screen on the freeway? You’d Watch as long as you possibly could until it faded to a tiny far away spot while trying to call out what was playing. If you grew up in the 70′s or before you definitely remember drive-in movies.
I recently told this story to my 13 year old daughter and slam, her laptop came out and she was googling “drive-in theaters in Seattle”. We found the Valley 6 Drive In Theater A cute family-friendly theater that plays all the most current selections.
As for the party, we needed a cake. Something that went with this fun movie theme.
I made a chocolate cake and frosted it. Then made a popcorn bag to put around the cake to make it look like it’s a bag of pop-corn. The pop-corn was small marshmallows tinted yellow with yellow food coloring. Or you can use butter for coloring. Then I just dropped about an inch worth on top of the cake to make it look like a full bag of pop-corn.
We brought lawn chairs and blankets, parked our SUV in backward and they found a comfortable spot both inside and outside the car. It was something out of the ordinary and fun for all. Here’s one for the ol’ classics!
