My group of Young Women at church wanted to have a Tea Party so last night we had a Tea Party for our activity. I made them some treats to go along with the theme so here is the first of two edible tea cups that I made for them. I found the idea on a blog called “Accent the Party”.
for each teacup you will need:
cup style wafer ice cream cone
round sugar or shortbread cookie (I shopped at Winco and bought a package of their Hy-Top brand sugar cookies which the girls said tasted pretty good)
decorator’s icing (I had and so used a tube of Betty Crocker white decorator icing)
2 – 3 gummy ring candies (I bought a bag of peach rings)
assorted candies, popcorn or trail mix to fill the teacup (I just filled them with the peach rings)
1 Use a serrated knife to carefully cut the cup portion of the ice cream cone from the handle. Discard the handle and set the cup aside for now. (Don’t cut the cup right at the intersecting line of cup and handle, cut down around the first or second line on the handle, you need a little extra in order to put this thing together.)
2 Place a gummy ring candy on the center of the cookie, using decorator icing to glue it in place.
3 Set the ice cream cone cup on top of the gummy ring. Again, use a thin line of decorator icing to hold the cone in place. (I couldn’t get this to hold so after I did this step then I glued another gummy ring candy on the inside of the cup to give it a little more strength and then the cup finally stayed in place.)
4 For a teacup handle, slice a gummy ring in half. Gently press the cut ends of one of the candy halves against the cone to stick the handle in place. (I had to use icing on the ends to get it to stick.)
5 Fill the cup with a few candies or other snacks.
