When I got the free birthday gift from Sephora, the cashier wrapped it up in this cute little bag. And I realized the bag was the perfect size to hold…
Kracie Poppin’ Cookin’ Ice Cream Parlor
Price: $5.00 at T&T Food Market
Now that summer is in full swing, let’s have some ice cream! In this kit, you get 2 ice cream flavour packets: 1 strawberry and 1 vanilla. You also get two ice cream cones, a waffle bowl, two unflavoured wafers, sprinkles, a piping bag, and a…..
The box has special perforations, so you can make holders for your ice cream creations. But until you punch the holes, the box can be…
So let’s begin, shall we?
This is probably the most resourceful kit we’ve tried to date. Not only does the box make a cute stand, but the plastic wrapping comes with cut-out pieces you can use to decorate your cones. Now you can pretend you have a real ice cream shop!
…putting the cream into the piping bag was not. From video demonstrations, I expected a small partition inside the bag, to keep the colours separate until it was time to pipe. We ended up winging the placement, squishing the cream into place. It was very messy. This is the best we could manage. Luckily, it didn’t look too bad once piped out.
We made two little ice cream cones. They look cute as is.
The box showed some other options, including an ice cream sandwich. These required us to break the wafers on their corrugated lines. (One side had diagonal lines, the other had checkered lines) Shoony was a bit better at this than me.
She made an ice cream sandwich…
and I made an ice cream boat.
As we were rearranging, we realized that water had fallen into one of the divets, making the bottom of a cone all soggy. Eww…
But that didn’t stop us from assembling this lovely display.
Although this kit wasn’t as intensive as the cake kit, our general incompetence made it difficult to keep the creams separate. Not recommended if you’re anal about keeping colours separate. And watch out for accidental water drippage, or you’re gonna have a bad time with soggy cones.
Very tasty! The vanilla bits too! The cones taste and feel like real cones, but the wafers were a bit stale.
Overall verdict: 8/10 would recommend, as long as you’re not derp.
Ice cream kit is very cute and fun to decorate. But again, you often end up following the box for “creative” designs. This kit came with cute heart-shaped sprinkles, and it’s a lot of fun if you like decorating cakes with frosting.
Have you tried this kit? What did you think? What other kits would you recommend? Comment below!
Pika, so happy~
