Edible Teacups!

Today’s the day of our Alice in Wonderland themed tea party. I just knocked up these little beauties and am quite tickled by how wonderful they look…

Here’s how to make your own:

What you Need:

  • Ice Cream Cones
  • Biscuits
  • Jelly Ring Sweets
  • Sweets to Fill the “Cups”

With a knife, cut the tops off your ice cream cones (do this carefully as they are brittle and you need to achieve a straight cut so they don’t topple over).

Cut a jelly ring in half and stick it on to the side of your cone top to form the teacup handle (the inside of the sweet is sticky and so will hold fast just fine).

Pop, you teacup on a biscuit “saucer” and fill with sweets. Job done!

How cute are these?

How to Make Your Own: Towel Cake

A cute and unique gift that you can make yourself in a few simple steps from this free tutorial from Lily P Chic… Enjoy!

——————————————————————–

What You Will Need:

  • One Small Bath Towel
  • One Hand Towel
  • 1.5m Cellophane (available from most reputable florists)
  • Florists Bow to Finish
  • 2 – 3m Length of 1.5″ Width Ribbon
  • Cardboard
  • Tissue Paper
  • Safety Pins
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors
  • Selection of Items to Fill the Towel Cake With

The items used in the example comprise a selection of pampering and beauty items but you can use anything depending on the person who is receiving the gift and the occasion. New born baby products for a birth, sexy underwear for a wedding night or valentines day, chocolates and bubble bath for Mothers Day, even football accessories for the footie season! The possibilities are endless!

——————————————————————–

Step One:

Use a large plate as a template to draw around and cut out a cardboard circle. Do the same again with a smaller plate so that you have a large and a small cardboard circle.

Step Two:

Cover each circle in colourful tissue or wrapping paper securing it with sellotape or glue.

Step Three:

Place your length of cellophane on a flat surface and begin building your cake with the largest tier at the bottom. Start with your large cardboard circle and fold the large towel over until you have the desired height (around 4″ should be fine). Tuck the towel ends into itself and place onto the circle (secure with safety pins if you feel this will provide extra support).

Step Four:

Secure with half your ribbon and begin filling with your items.

Step Five:

Place the smaller circle on top of your first tier and build your second tier in the same way as the first. Secure with the rest of the ribbon and fill with your remaining items.

Step Six:

Loosely pull the four corners of your cellophane upwards into a bunch and secure with your finishing ribbon. Et voila… One Towel Cake!

——————————————————————–

You can fill your cake with sweets for younger children:

Or use white cellophane for a bridal shower gift:
