I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream!
What kid (or adult) doesn’t love ice cream?
I was after a simple concept for my son’s 5th birthday party and after much trawling of the internet, together we decided an ice cream party was the way to go!
I had seen this cake idea on Pinterest (I can’t find the link to the original post – if you find it, I would love you to pop it in the comments so I can link it to the original creator!) and it was very easy to make and orchestrate.
Basically, the cakes are just vanilla cupcakes, iced like different flavoured cupcake and stacked on top of a waffle cone. I used silicone moulds so I could just remove and ice the whole cake including the sides. They were super easy and I think they look great! Lots of people were wondering why the cake wasn’t melting! :-)
I also made a different batch of cupcakes and used straws and cellophane to make candles – just in case there weren’t enough!
At the party we played ‘Pin the Cherry on Top’ which we made together, and of course pass the parcel. I was able to pick up some ‘ice cream related’ prizes like erasers and hair clips from the dollar type shops.
We also had an ice cream bar which was a great hit! We had homemade chocolate, strawberry and caramel sauces with vanilla ice cream and as many toppings as you could think of! The kids absolutely LOVED this!
All in all everyone had a great time. I highly recommend this theme. It was so much fun to plan and was enjoyable for all ages!
