  • I would just put snacks and cake will be served on the invites so there is no confusion

  • I would just think cake and ice cream would be fine. Most people would have already in my opinion have eaten dinner.

  • ice cream and cake ... that's after dinner time and that's normal fare for a birthday party! If dinner were to be served, you'd say so on the invitation.

  • 7:00 is after dinner here, so I wouldn't expect more than cake and drinks.
