This fun little Halloween drip box inspired by a dripping ice cream cone cake looks cute enough to eat. Even though that is a real ice cream cone and real candy sprinkles, I wouldn’t recommend it. This is the kind of box that you put a few tricks and treats inside. Perfect as a decoration, Boo gift for your neighbors or perhaps elaborate goodie bag option for a small Halloween party. The best part is these guys are easier to make than it is to bake a real cake.
Make a Halloween Drip Cake with Spilled Ice Cream Inspired Gift Box
- Paper Mache Box
- Craft Paint
- Ice Cream Cone
- Glue (craft and hot)
- Small Toys & Trinkets
Start by painting the boxes one solid color. Think of this as the base layer of icing for your cake. You may need more than once coat of paint.
Water down slightly the color that you want to use for the drips. Spread across the top of the box and allow to spill down the sides. The more random the better. Allow paint to dry completely.
When the paint is dry it’s time to decorate your cake. The edible versions of these cakes look like an ice cream cone is dripping down a cake. In place of ice cream use a pompom. Attach with glue to the top of the box. Add a ice cream cone tilted to once side. From here small toys, faux candies and even sprinkles can be added as decorations. These boxes (and cakes) are supposed to look over the top, so the more the better.
