Candy Tea Cups

20120618_161

Since this was a tea party, I thought it’d be fun for the girls to each have a candy tea cup.  I made these out of ice cream cones, and just cut the bottom of the cone off, so I was left with just the cup.  I used frosting to glue the cup to a shortbread cookie (so the candy wouldn’t fall through the hole in the cup).  I used “o” candy for the handle, and just cut each “o” in half and “glued” it onto the cup with water on each cut end.  I filled the cup with candy and they were ready!  I was a bit disappointed to find that all of my ice cream cones had chips in them when I opened the package, so the cups weren’t perfect, but they were still cute and fairly easy to make..
