Here's a treat befitting a sweet princess! Especially for her daughter's birthday party, Patricia Hill came up with the royal ice cream concoction. "Allison doesn't particularly like cake—but she's a big fan of ice cream," Patricia relates. "So these cone characters were a natural. "Of course, the day of her party last summer was one of the hottest on record. I was sure the ice cream would melt. But the kids devoured the cones before it could!"—Patricia Blomdahl Hill, Oakdale, California

  • 1/4 cup vanilla frosting
  • 2 drops blue food coloring
  • Pastry bag or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
  • Pastry bag or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
  • #20 star pastry tip
  • 2 ice cream cake cones
  • 14 each yellow and white fruit-flavored decorating candies (Decors)
  • 1 square light blue cellophane (6 inches)
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut

  • 2 sliced almonds, halved
  • 4 miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 1/4-inch round chocolate candies (Sixlets)
  • 2 red Life Savers

Directions

Place ice cream scoops on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until ready to use.
Combine frosting and blue food coloring. Cut a small hole in the bottom corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert tip. Fill bag with frosting. Holding bag straight up and down, form stars around the 1-in. band of each ice cream cone to make a crown. Above crown band, form seven evenly spaced stars to form tips of crown.
Decorate crowns with a yellow candy in the center of each crown tip and seven white candies around the band.
With a knife, poke a small hole in the bottom of princess' cone. Gather center of cellophane square and push into hole.
For princes' hair, combine yellow food coloring and coconut. For princess' hair, cut licorice strips into six 4-in. strips and flour 3/4-in. strips.
Remove ice cream from freezer and place each scoop on a serving dish. On one scoop, place the coconut on top and around three sides, leaving space to make a face; place prince's crown on top of scoop. On the other scoop, attach three 4-in. licorice strands on each side and four 3/4-in. strips angled on top to make princess' hair. Place princess' crown on top of scoop.
For eyes, press almond halves and chocolate chips into ice cream for each face. Add a chocolate candy for nose and red Life Saver for mouth. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.

"Such a cute idea! I couldn't find yellow licorice, so I just used red. This is a great craft for kids & is so much fun for them to eat!"
