Hello! Last month I told you the exciting news about my new partnership with Make It Fun Crafts. This month we are having a “ball”! ha! ;) The theme for this month is celebrations, & we are all sharing fun ideas using FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls. Be sure to follow the #makeitfuncrafts hashtag to see more. Our family loves to celebrate. Every year when school gets out we have a little summer celebration. So today I am going to show you how to make this Mini Snow Cone Cake Topper that is perfect for a summer party. It turned out so cute! So let’s get started. :)
First, you’ll need a few supplies. :)
FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® 1 1/2 in. Foam Balls
FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® StyroGlue®
hot glue & glue gun
cone template (I used this one from the Silhouette online store.)
First, I hot glued the foam balls into the paper cones.
Next I poured some glue & sprinkles in separate bowls. Since I was hanging this garland over a cake I used cake sprinkles instead of glitter. I’d rather have sprinkles accidently fall on top of my cake than glitter! ha! ;)
Using the paint brush I put a very thin layer of glue on the foam ball. Then I dipped the foam balls into the sprinkles.
To make the hooks to string the twine through I just used safety pins. I cut of the end piece off with wire cutters & then pushed them into the top of the mini snow cone. (see above picture)
Then I strung the mini snow cones onto a piece of twine. I tied a knot at each one so my snow cones wouldn’t slide around. Then using two paper straws I stuck it in the top of my cake! Cute! :)
Annnnd while we are celebrating. ha! :) I thought I’d show you how to make a colorful checkerboard cake! First, I made 4 round cakes in all different colors.
Then using a large circle cookie cutter I swapped out the middles.
Then I stacked them & iced as normal.
Annnd when we cut the cake we had a fun surprise! My kiddos love it! :)
Now bring out some colorful decorations, some snow cone supplies & add your cake! Now you have a fun summer celebration party all ready to go! Enjoy! :)
