{TRENDS} Ice Cream Desserts that Aren't Ice Cream!

by Jillian Leslie on

With summer approaching, I can't help but think of ice cream, so I was planning to write a post about the incredible ice cream socials on our site. But then I noticed how many treats people make that look like ice cream, but aren't actually ice cream.

I love anything clever and fun, especially when it comes to dessert, so here are my favorite "ice cream" desserts pulled from different parties on our site. (Click on the photo to see the party it's from.)

Have You Heard of Kickstarter Yet?

by Jillian Leslie on

Have you heard of Kickstarter yet? If you haven't, it's a "funding platform for creative ideas." And what does that mean? Well, it's a very cool way for creative people to raise money for their projects.

Here's how it works: the person with the project sets his or her funding goal and deadline for raising money. If the project reaches it's goal in the time allotted, the people who "back" the project have their credit cards charged and the person receives their funding. If the goal isn't reached, the person receives no funding and no credit cards are charged.

UPrinting makes great canvas prints, and they are giving away an 11"x14" stretched canvas print worth $49.99 to one of our lucky readers!

I was actually talking to friend of mine this week about how she gave a canvas print of her daughter to her mom for Mother's Day, and I thought, what a fantastic idea! In fact, how perfect would a canvas print be for Father's Day...
