Green Tea Ice Cream and Pretty Little Cups Too!

You know color rules your life when even your favorite ice cream is chosen first for its color and second for its delicious, not-too-sweet taste. To my eye, there is nothing more appealing than the subtle, soft green in Japanese Green Tea ice cream. It’s a hue that has inspired more than one design in the Wooster & Prince line of Art Paper and other products … the most obvious being Esther’s Island Botanical.

I recently paired up some of these designs with the delectable little treat that inspired this palette. Using a small paper cup as a template, I wrapped the exterior with several different styles of Wooster & Prince papers. A cute little green ribbon tied around old-fashioned wooden spoons added yet another touch of that beautiful color.

Creating these little cups is quick and easy. If your hobby store doesn’t carry paper ice cream cups, borrow a few from your local ice cream shop. (They won’t mind!) Tear one apart to use as a template and place it flat onto your favorite decorative paper. Trace the outline with a pencil and cut out the form. Using spray mount glue, spray the backside of the paper. Do this outside and away from your cups. While the paper is still tacky, place it around the cup exterior and fold any excess paper under the bottom.

Now, that’s a dessert that looks as good as it tastes! I love eCreamery Green Tea Ice Cream, but if you want a quick recipe to make on your own, try the one below and click here to get a printable version of this cute little recipe card featuring Wooster & Prince’s Esther Island pattern.
