(Family Features) Whether it's a birthday, graduation, reunion or impromptu get-together, dressing up sweet scoops of ice cream makes a party easy, fun and creative.
From edible ice cream cups to cones dipped in colorful sprinkles, the entertaining experts at Wilton have big ideas to get you started. One way to wow guests is by making your own, edible, individual ice cream cookie bowls and candy cups to hold those scrumptious scoops.
Favorite cookie flavors become cookie bowls with the new Ice Cream Cookie Bowl Pan. Cookie bowls bake on the outside of the pan using recipes - like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl - specially created for this baking application. A sugar cookie variation is available on www.wilton.com.
Candy cups start with Candy Melts - versatile, creamy and easy-to-melt wafers available in a variety of colors and flavors. The melted candy is brushed inside a silicone cup and refrigerated until firm. Then just unmold and fill with ice cream. For foolproof, step-by-step instructions, visit www.bakedecoratecelebrate.com.
Even the tried-and-true ice cream cone can get a new look. To jazz up a basic store-bought cone simply dip an inch or two from the top into melted candy. Then dip again or roll in colorful, crunchy sprinkles and toppings.
