A few years ago my friend celebrated a birthday of huge significance, you know one of those birthdays when you start counting backwards. Her life is full of constant stress, so I thought it would be nice to throw her a spa party where she could relax and be pampered for an evening. She loved it and I was happy to have hosted such a wonderful event for her.
During the party we dined on gourmet appetizers and over the top desserts, but I sure wish I would have come up with the idea to make this cheese ball back then as I know she would have thought it was so clever. I guess I just need to host another spa party:)
As I was dreaming up ideas for my birthday party recipes, that spa party and an image of a women enjoying a facial came to my mind. I’ve made food into faces before for Halloween parties, and had no trouble deciding just how to make this particular face. I wanted the woman’s face to be covered in an avocado mask so I chose to make a cheese ball that tasted a bit like a taco – the flavors work well together. Her head is wrapped in a mozzarella cheese towel and she has cucumbers over her eyes and a roasted red pepper lips. It took me less than 30 minutes to create this whole thing. I love recipes like that.
Spa Party Appetizer – Taco flavored cheese ball
Wash the face mask with warm soapy water. Dry. Line it with a piece of plastic wrap.
