This past Sunday we had the pleasure of hosting a fabulous birthday party for a very special little girl! The theme was an “Ice Cream Shoppe” and we had so much fun coming up with creative ideas. The guests got to make Ice Cream Cone Necklaces out of Scupley and Beads. Then in the kitchen we made mini cupcakes which we iced and then put into cones. Here’s a great recipe for mini cupcakes. Once they’ve cooled down we used royal icing and sprinkles to decorate them and then just simply placed the cupcakes into the cones.
The party ended with a grand feast of Ice Cream Cake (no real ice cream was used in the making of the cake)!
The cake was made from “traditional birthday cake” recipe and then iced with buttercream icing. We used two separate pans for the cake and once baked we cut each cake into two and filled them with buttercream icing. So really, the cake was made up for 4 layers altogether. We used fondant in various colours to make the circles that are around the cake.
We added the cones at the very last minute as we didn’t want them to get soggy from being refrigerated. For the cones, we simply used a serrated knife and very gently cut them in half and then pushed them into the cake. They were the perfect height so the outside rim sat almost right on the cake. Using the buttercream icing we did the swirls and added a cinnamon heart on the top for the cherry! It was such a fun birthday party and we were so pleased to host it!
We hosted a fabulous birthday party on Sunday! The birthday girl had picked “night time” as her theme. We made beautiful “night time” boxes with lots of scary critters and glow in the dark stars! Then we made cupcakes with blue royal icing and yellow fondant stars on. It was lots of fun and a great, new theme for us!
After weeks and weeks of hard work the ICS Minis were finally finished on Wednesday! The students worked so hard on their projects and put such an amazing effort into their boxes. It was quite an incredible process to watch and be a part of and we’re extremely proud of their finished work.
Check out the amazing work the students from ICS are doing! They’ve finished most of their furniture and have started adding shelves and artwork. Next week we’ll start working on the food, stay tuned for more photographs!
The students from ICS worked very hard today on creating their furniture, they made everything from bookcases to tables. Check out their amazing work thus far!
ICS has started their second term at Seasons and they are have been working very hard! Check out their amazing miniature room boxes. Each box is unique and will be either a store, restaurant or cafe. Stay tuned for more pictures!
Another fun day at our March Break Camp!
Looking for a fun Holiday Craft to do? We made these cute stockings from burlap and wool. It’s a very easy craft you can do at home. You could hand stitch them however, we would recommend using a sewing machine as the burlap is hard to sew by hand. We cut out two boot patterns out of the burlap and then sewed them together using the sewing machine. We glued on the wool to the top of the stocking using hot glue. For ours, we left them blank however, we gave the stockings to our Expressive Art class and they used fabric markers and paints to decorate them. It’s a great craft you can do with your kids and the sky is the limit in terms of what you can use to decorate your stockings!
