WARNING!!! This might be the cutest dessert you ever make!! REALLY!!! I was SO excited to make these for Ellie’s Amazing Ice Cream Party because I knew they would be a crowd favorite. But let me tell you, the adorableness of these Ice Cream Cake […]
I’m pretty sure gum balls are the universal symbol of childhood. I remember asking for a quarter on every grocery trip so I could hit up the gum ball machine at the end! Do you remember how lucky you felt when you scored a blue or a red? Or how you would giggle at your brother when he got a green or a yellow? Yuck! Did anyone ever really like those flavors?!? Why did they even put them in there? How is it that a quarter could so easily make you feel like you hit the jackpot all these years ago??? Well, I probably hadn’t chewed one or hit up a gum ball machine for at least 20 years now, but I couldn’t resist chomping on these cute (and tasty!) pearlized gum balls as I was crafting up this next treat! Instant nostalgia that lasts until the flavor runs out. But the true prize will be when my niece is looking back and feeling nostalgic thinking about these darling little treats in about 20 years or so! I’m sure she’ll remember every detail of Ellie’s Amazing Ice Cream Party with a happy heart!
Here’s all you’ll need: Gum balls, tan or gold cupcake liners, 4 X 9.5 in cellophane bags (you can find these at Michaels or at your local craft store), ribbon, and clear tape.
Flatten out a cupcake liner and then fold it in half.
Lay your cellophane bag flat on the table. We used a 4 X 9.5 bag but you can also substitute with a similar size. It doesn’t matter how long the bag is, but you want the width around 3-4″.
Tie with a pretty ribbon to secure and keep everything in place. Cut off any excess cellophane bag at the top if needed. I can’t get over how sweet they are! And you can make them ahead of time or even have the kids help!

Whether you’re turning 8 or 80, you totally NEED this sprinkle number at your next birthday party! It’s such a quick and easy way to decorate a birthday table and it’s an absolute showstopper!! I made this for Ellie’s Amazing Ice Cream Party in July and her eyes just lit up when she saw it. I mean who doesn’t love sprinkles??? I know I sure do! I would put them on everything if I could. (Yes, I’m a 34 year old adult. Don’t judge!) The best part is you can use any kind of sprinkles that you like and match this with virtually any party theme so you can make it again and again and achieve a completely different look. How awesome is that?!? Well, what are you waiting for??? Someone’s out there turning 5….or 35…..or 75…..and they want this!! They just don’t know it yet!!!
Here’s all you’ll need: A cardboard number, mod lodge, acrylic paint (all found at your local craft store), and sprinkles!!
Paint both sides of the number in the color of your choice and allow it to dry completely. I used two coats of paint to make sure I didn’t miss any spots. The cardboard really sucks up the paint. I used a foam brush that I had unhand to apply.
Place the number face down in the sprinkle pile. It’s like a belly flop right into a pool of sprinkles!! Gently push it down so they all stick. I waited about 30 seconds to give it a little time for the glue to firm up. I’m telling you that 30 seconds was killing me!! I was dying to see what it looked like.
Next flip it over and add more sprinkles to any of the the blank spaces that might have gotten missed. I just sprinkled more sprinkles on top to cover. You can add more Mod Podge if you need to, but do it carefully. We don’t want to mess up the sprinkles that are already stuck.
Allow this to dry completely. I probably waited about another half hour before I touched it again. Good thing I had PLENTY of other party favors to make to keep me busy! Pick it up and all the excess sprinkles will fall onto your cookie sheet. Crumble up the foil and throw it away. No mess! I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!!
