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! Are you heading to a baby shower anytime soon? Homemade gifts can make wonderful baby shower presents, but if you do not have time to create something of your own, you might want to buy some of the latest baby gear online instead. Nowadays, you can even read reviews on websites like babycro.com to be sure that the baby gear you are buying lives up to the hype! I always like to read reviews before I buy gifts as it ensures that you can get an honest opinion before spending your money.
** 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….
