I just got back from visiting my bestie in Provo, Utah. He goes to BYU and I haven’t had the chance to see him in months, so I spontaneously planned a trip to go visit him. I stayed for the long weekend and had a blast! Everyone was so nice and it was great to see old friends. I seriously love that place.
The bestie took me to a place called Sub Zero, where they make your ice cream in front of you. It was awesome! Basically, you get to choose your kind of milk that you want (premium with 14% fat, custard 10%, skim 2%, yogurt 0%, or nonfat 0%), the flavor, and what kind of toppings. I got premium marshmallow creme ice cream with cookie dough and the bestie got premium amaretto ice cream with mixed berries. It starts off looking like this:
Repeat the process once more, and voila! You get this beauty!:
Super delicious! I wanted to try the yogurt but my bestie made me get the fattiest one for optimal taste. While also in Provo, we went to a gingerbread festival at thanksgiving point. We went not really knowing what it was, but I didn’t care cause I love that stuff. It was done by the boy scouts and helped raised money through admission and auctioning off the gingerbread houses. Some of the houses were made by little kids and others were made by professionals. It was so neat to see all of them– we even got to get our faces painted, decorate our own gingerbread man, and drink hot chocolate! Here’s a couple of my favorites from the amateur bunch:
And Dr. Seuss of course:
Not sure what this was of… but it was so good to be made by kiddies!
This is Hagrid’s house from harry potter. I probably should have taken a picture of the other side too to get the full effect. Oh well:
Now on to the professional ones. I have no idea how long these must have taken to make– I imagine weeks, months even. They’re so amazing with all the detail put into them. It was like I was at a Food Network challenge!
And of course, I had to save this one for last. This is my absolute favorite of the bunch simply because little kids made it AND it’s the house from the movie “Up”!! What a great idea to use lollipops as the balloons. Kids are so amazing and creative.
I just got a box of cookie cutters that I’m dying to use– so look forward to that! AND Thanksgiving is coming up so that means more delicious treats.
