Making and Preserving Memories...Pearl dusted ice cream cones...

These pearl dusted ice cream cones are a memory in the making if ever there was one.
I remember my Nanna putting a marshmallow in the bottom of our ice cream cones.
It prevented the melting ice cream (inevitable in the Summer heat here), from melting through the bottom of the cones.
That would be a nice touch too.
Meanwhile, these make an ordinary ice cream, something special and magical. And you can use any colour edible glitter or tinted sugar you like.
All you do is spray the ice cream cone with spray oil, or smooth some on your palms and smear it on the cones.
The sprinkle the pearl dust or edible glitter on or roll the cones in the dust or edible glitter.
Not only are these pretty, they leave a satisfying dust of glitter or pearls on your hands.

I think the Granddaughters are going to love this.
There's a memory in the making if ever there was one.
