I have been gone a week in Mexico on vacation, so that is why I called this post "desserts in paradise". We got so much delicious, "free" food.
Well, I have been in the process, for a while now, of making this epic quilling scene (I've decided I love making those now, after my Easter one). I took a break from that because today (that's right-TO-DAY) I saw the new challenge in the Quill Pill blog (I follow this blog, you can find a link if you'd like to see it on the top right by the blogs I follow), and I liked it a lot this time! Usually it's to make a card with something on it, but I prefer to do my 3D quilling! This time, the theme was more "generic"-allowing me to quill something sweet, and "put" it on anything. Of course with mine, I didn't put it on anything! It's 100% quilling paper!
So in just a few hours, I threw this together. I initially was just going to make the ice cream, but I decided to add more to it since it didn't take that long! Everything about the ice cream part is "obvious", but for the chocolate syrup I took a VERY thin strip (that I cut very thin-less than 1/16 of an inch. Yes, I have a knack for cutting), and twirled it around to make it thinner. Then I kinda twirled it in a funny way and put glue on it from a thin layer on my scrap sheet. I did a similar thing with the fork.
As for the cake, I took 1/16 inch strips (the white part) and twirled it around a tooth pick and made it tighter. The chocolate part is even smaller than that, but the same thing. And yes, I cut it to make those strips smaller.
And as for the placemat...each new color was a different stip! I dare you to count how many I used for that, LOL.
