Ribbon Ice Cream?!
Hi, Laura here today.
A few years back Ali (Crafty Ribbons owner) made some adorable ribbon cupcakes. They planted a seed in my mind... what about a ribbon ice cream cone? A few years have past, but the idea hung on and has now come to fruition...
The cone is made by pinning Swiss dot ribbon in 'tan and white' to a polystyrene cone.
It always takes me a long time to decide what flavour to pick when I buy a cone, and true to form it took a long while to decide which ribbons to use! I settled on Raspberry ripple and used a collection of pink ribbon in both grosgrain and organza Swiss dots.
These were also pinned to polystyrene - I cut a ball in half to give me a scoop type shape. As I pinned I twisted to give the look of ice cream from a Mr Whippy machine.
I hope you like this creation... I'm quite hungry now... off for an ice cream I think!
