We did something a little different this weekend at Sweet Table. We traded in the cupcakes and truffles for ice cream, and created adult versions of this childhood favorite. Our “Ice Cream Bar” created the perfect Fourth of July sweet table for an adult crowd by using more sophisticated ice cream flavor combinations and decor that gave it a true “bar” feel.
Rock candy “chandeliers” sparkled on both sides of the “Ice Cream Bar” sign hung above the table. We created custom labels to showcase the unique flavor combinations of the ice creams,which included chocolate malt on the rocks (rock candy, that is), sweet lime mint mojito, creamy coconut with hot fudge shots, and salted caramel martinis with chocolate cholives. We used edible spray paint to color the ice cream cones and waffle cups a shiny silver to coordinate with the other serving pieces. “Ice buckets” holding the ice cream were placed in between serving stations to keep the ice cream cold as guests made their way down the line.
This dessert table was like nothing we’ve done before at Sweet Table Chicago, but it may just be one of the most fun we’ve ever had putting together!
