My 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!
** a perfect baby shower gift **
What you need (for a set of four sundaes) :: 4 Receiving blankets, 4 onesies, 4 plastic bowls, 4 baby spoons, and four red pom poms for the cherry.
Step One :: Fold the blanket into a 2 1/2 – 3 inch strip, fold the onesie into a 2 inch strip.
Step Two :: Roll the undershirt.
Step Three :: Roll the blanket around the onesie.
This is what mine looked like after rolling the onesie in the blanket:
Step Four :: Stuff the whole thing into a bowl, tucking the end of the blanket inside the bowl
Step Five :: Add a “cherry” on top and a spoon with which to eat it!
The finished product:
Apparently they looked good enough to eat….
