For Julian & Sebastian's 6th birthday, we went with an ice cream theme. Ice cream is one of their major food groups! Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn hosted our party. The kids each had a turn to churn their own batch of ice cream. Ample Hills has a custom built churning bicycle. So cool!
I loved making these ice cream cone cakes for my boys. The ice cream part is all cake. The cone/base was made with the help of my dad. He's always able to bring my crazy ideas to life! It was made by securing two wooden boards (one at the bottom and one between the "ice cream" and the "cone") with a wooden dowel in between. I made sheets of rice krispie treat and wrapped that around the dowel to form the cone. I covered it in fondant and airbrushed on some detail.
