Pineapple Ice Cream bowls with metallic umbrellas

July 29th, 2015

PIN this project!


How cute are these little metallic umbrellas! I made them using Minc 5th Avenue paper, a Minc machine, and all my favorite colors of Minc foil!


To make the umbrellas I foiled full 12×12 sheets of Minc paper, some of these I used as place-mats! I love using 12×12 papers for placemats at dinner parties or on refreshment tables.

The foil went on the full sheets really well. I was worried about the foil wrinkling as it went through, but with the transfer envelope, everything stayed right in place and the foil transferred over really well.


I used this super easy paper umbrella tutorial to create the umbrellas. You just need a circle template (glass, cookie cutter, etc), pen, scissors, and skewers/long toothpicks.

To make these, I sliced the pineapple in half top to bottom. You’ll need a big sharp knife to get through the hard core and stem.


And then cut and scooped away the inside parts to hollow out the bowl. Then added sorbet and umbrellas as a garnish!


And don’t forget to enjoy eating them!
