Ice Cream Smackdown!
My friend Aaron invited me to enter an ice cream smackdown party hosted by the lovely Alexis. It was so much fun! Alexis went all out with the details and decorations. My favourite touches were the ice cream dish set, adorable ballot cards and portable coolers to keep the ice cream from melting while everyone sampled all the creamy goodness -- genius!
Competition was fierce. Seven handmade creations were judged -- pyscho chocolate, salted pistachio, jackfruit, banana caramel swirl, salted caramel brownie sundae, blackberry and maple walnut spice (made by yours truly). After several rounds of tasting, the ballots were counted and it was a decisive win. Salted caramel brownie laid the big smackdown! Salted pistachio and maple walnut spice tied for second. Yippee, yippee! I seriously HEART my little second place trophy. It's the cutest. (That's Aaron trying to gnaw on it). This really made my day!
Thanks again Alexis for a super fantastic time and congrats on the tie. She made the delicious pistachio. :)
