this is the sundae made by my 7 year old granddaughter. I prepared a sundae dish for her by cutting off the top of a plastic water bottle. I removed the sharp edge by twisting the edge down on a low-heat skillet for a few seconds (it turns under, making a "lip"). Immediately after heating the edge smooth, I place the new edge onto a rounded container (I used a regular sherbet dish, but you have to find something it will fit tightly to before starting). This makes the new edge cool with that edge turned under.
Hannah used three large white poms and glued them together...two on the bottom and one on the top. She then glued a small red pom (cherry) on top. Then she just drizzled the "chocolate" down the sides with acrylic paint.
After the "chocolate" paint dried, she painted all over with clear glue gel to bring out a shine.
My DH and I are probably going to participate in a craft show this spring, and if we do, it'll be an 18-inch-doll accessory both...and I might make some of these. After all, if Hannah can do it, so can I!
