PLAN AHEAD! Scoop ice cream into baking cups before the party and put in the freezer. When cake is served bring out the pre-made scoops. (Great idea instead of all the time consuming scooping in the middle of a party!)
Giant Kerplunk!! this was the hit of father's day. the link for instructions is posted next to this pin on the same board. I used 3/8" x 3' square dowels instead of the bamboo plant sticks. The bamboo did not work very well. My mother (89 years) and one of my grandsons (3 years) loved playing it. Have fun!
How clever! Just cut a cream cheese block on the diagonal to have the pieces to make a tree shape. Then add some bell pepper decorations and some pepper jelly (and Wheat Thins of course), and you have an awesomely cute appetizer!
