DIY Ice Cream Sundae Baby Shower GiftMy cousin and his wife are expecting a baby and their baby shower was last weekend.  Ella and I thought that we should make a very special present for their babe.  So of course we turned to Pinterest for ideas, and YouTube for videos on how to make desserts out of baby items.  I couldn’t find step-by-step directions for small sundaes like this, but instead found all kind of other desserts.  So I went ahead and put together a Ice Cream Sundae Baby Shower Gift tutorial for the blog.  These sweets were a huge hit at the party, everyone thought they were super-cute.  And it was fun to make them.  It took a little trial and error to get the blankets and onesies to look like ice cream, but eventually Ella and I figured it out!
