Cake and ice cream is pretty much the ultimate party theme. It works for kids, adults, birthdays, anniversaries, Arbor Day. Here are a few ideas for a sweet fete, starting with this i scream invitation from Tiny Prints.

For the toppers that broadcast the flavor of the cake as well, I printed block letters (festivo font) on patterned paper and cut them out. Then I attached to gold wire with hot glue. It would be even easier to use letter stickers or chipboard.

Scoop the ice cream ahead of time and freeze on a cookie sheet – the scoops stay frozen longer (perfect for serving) and it saves you from sticky forearms at the party.

Bonus, the layered streamers can double as a photo booth backdrop. I shared the how-to right here on the Tiny Prints blog.

And now, I believe, it’s time for a slice and a scoop.

Tiny Prints is a yamf sponsor but I would like their products even if they weren’t. See more party invitations right here.

    Pre-scooped ice cream is the best idea ever!

    As soon as I saw the title I knew I was going to love this post – I mean, what’s not to love?! Pre-scooped ice cream is also a completely genius idea.
