Ice Cream Party

It was an ice cream extravaganza for my daughter's second birthday. The dessert table featured a pink ruffle cake with Swiss merengue buttercream and cookies and cream filling, along with ice cream cone cake pops, strawberry shortcake push pops, ice cream sugar cookies and Neapolitan crispy treats. The big hit was the make-your-own sundae bar.
I was inspired by these sweet, vintage-inspired ice cream truck favor boxes, which we stuffed with ice cream cone bubbles and a double cherry lollipop. I found them here.

The games included our version of Punch-A-Bunch (I hot glued ice cream pint cups to a board and filled them with prizes), a balloon drop in which kids had to catch prize-filled balloons with an ice cream bowl, and ice cream bean bag toss. My husband built the ice cream truck and we painted it to look like the treat box.
