Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott owner Jessica Parrott crafts cupcakes and whoopie pies from fresh fruit and real butter in her bakery in South Portland. Customers can peruse a long list of flavors such as german chocolate, carrot, red velvet, vanilla, and coconut to pick the cake base for each of 12 or 36 cup-size confections. For a finishing touch, Parrott crowns each cake with creamy buttercream frosting and can also fill them with chocolate ganache, buttercream, pistachio pudding, or ideas so crazy that they just might work. Alternatively, whoopie pies sandwich cake circles and creamy filling into portable hand-held treats.
For an hour or two, Wish Upon A Character brings a child's favorite fictional being to life. Using costumes and a ceaseless enthusiasm, these performers commit friendly identity theft and take on the personas of some 20 different characters: famous princesses, cartoon mice, and other familiar favorites. They then arrive at parties and other special events to delight children and adults, leading activities including fun games that incorporate song and dance.
Maine Photo Booth Co. delivers fun in booth form anywhere in the state. Its booth of choice is the Model 12, a retro variety that produces images with enough quality to be approved for passport and ID pictures. The booth comes fully-assembled. The metal cabinet style booth appears old-fashioned looking on the outside while the inside is state-of-art with the latest digital technology. Visual and voice instructions guide guests as they pose and pout for a series of six pictures, which the booth slaps onto photo strips and spits out in 10 seconds or less. Maine Photo Booth’s rentals include an unlimited number of these strips in black and white or color, plus one flash drive for the renting party, so guests can share pictures online or frisbee them into a passing neighbor’s car. Since attendants take care of the setup and cleanup, guests need only worry about which celebrity’s smile they want to imitate.
The attentive staff at The Rumpus Room lets parent-accompanied children up to age 6 explore a fully stocked fun-factory that houses a variety of playground equipment, toys, and colorful foam mats to protect kid-sized craniums from bumps and falls. Families get unlimited access to the play-space from May 31 to August 31 with the summer membership, giving kids an opportunity to expend their energy without resorting to bench-pressing their imaginary friends. A wooden pirate ship with a slide, plank, and fire pole provides maritime merriment; miniature climbers can also monkey around on the dome jungle gym. Babies test their vertical mettle on the foam climbing blocks, and the ball pit prepares children for careers in giant gumball machine repair. Toys acquired from local shops wait patiently to be picked up for playtime, including a train table and dollhouse.
