ever since summer started, i prayed for the day it would end.
well, actually not summer summer.
more like summer boiling hot degree summer.
so now that summer will be over soon,
i would like one more ice cream treat please.
like the kind that lasts forever.
is it possible?
i think we can come up with something.
but first i gotta tell you what inspired me.
it's all that glitter guy's fault.
when he has products like this:
i mean really?!
how can you not like this?
well, the only thing i didn't like about it was the $$$ tag.
so here i went a'huntin' again.
and i got this:
homegoods, target and marshalls always have cake dome pedestals like this at pretty darn good prices, even if they aren't on clearance.
so i got 3 of them in different sizes...
i wanted an ice cream family treat. hehe
and spending the $27 was waaaaay more better than the $148 on the one item.
(was that proper grammar i just used? whatev.)
so i took them home and used this on one of them:
and i made a roller coaster with the white paint on the dome part.
that was a scary ride!
guess i'm not as young as i used to be...
so anyway, i globbed more paint on and covered about 1/3 of the dome, making sure i painted it on real thick to resemble ice cream.
then when it was still wet,
i added this:
to make it look like this:
can i have a cherry please?
are we done yet?
cuz look at this:
i got this.
first i painted the stem part white then when that was dry, i used these paint markers to do this:
now how about some strawberry ice cream
with different sprinkles?
ok how's this for the stem?
teenie tineee strawberries.
wait! we gotta have chocolate too:
and do that stem as well,
this time with little loop de loops:
i covered all the paint parts with modge podge to seal the deal and keep the ants away from being tempted by a gigundo ice cream sundae.
so let's see what we got all together:
oooooo! me likey!
let's all scream for ice cream!
ok now that that's all done,
know that you can put whatever cookie you want in one of them.
you can put bars in the other!
and brownies in the third!
and the ice cream will never ever melt.
now that's what i call dessert :)
so good bye summer,
i gotta ton of halloween tricks and treats up my sleeve.
coming soon at this
same bat channel, but not necessarily same bat time.
