Crazy Faces! Bank Holiday Fun with Ice Cream!
With the arrival of summery weather, we've been looking forward to ice-cream in the garden! With the typically British weather this weekend, ice-cream in the garden has actually become ice-cream in the kitchen looking at the rain through the window! But Askey's Crazy Faces ice cream cones, have ensured that our Bank Holiday family fun is plentiful no matter what the weather!
Crazy faces come with two foil wrapped packs of cones (6 in each pack) and two sheets of 'faces'. The faces are rice paper, and there are a fabulous selection of eyes, ears and noses to create either favourite animals or monsters!
E is a little young but did with some help manage to stick a face on his ice-cream!
Boo, managed really well and excitedly chose which bits he'd need to create his crazy faces and carefully pushed the bits out of the rice paper. I was impressed that they didn't tear when he pushed them out!
As you can see he was delighted with his initial efforts, and he has asked if we can have a packet for his Birthday at the end of the month! The great thing about them, is they allow Boo (or me..) to be creative! With the addition of sauces or sweets you could create something really impressive! Or just keep it simple fun! They certainly brighten up Vanilla ice-cream without creating a mess!
My favourite has to be the elephant! (Boo added the hundreds and thousands decoration to it's head as he said it needed 'hair'!)
Askeys Crazy Faces are available at good supermarkets! We'd recommend them for a family friendly treat!
