Homemade Ice Cream Bridal Shower Ideas . . . Inspired by Scoop Adventures

Today's post certainly has me craving some yummy ice cream with lots of fun sprinkles and whipped cream. With warmer weather approaching I thought it would be fun to put together a bridal shower that incorporated homemade ice cream as the focal point. This idea was inspired by the brand new book by Lindsay Clendaniel called, Scoop Adventures: the best ice cream of the 50 states. Ice cream maker and blogger Lindsay, writes for her blog by the same name, Scoop Adventures. In her new book, Lindsay takes us on her travels across the county sampling ice cream from special shops and restaurants. This special ice cream cookbook includes 80 adapted recipes from her travels that can be easily made with a home ice cream maker . . . like Orange Chocolate Decadence, Lavender Caramel Swirl Ice Cream, Seaport Salty Swirl Ice Cream and many more. Check back tomorrow as I'll have 2 ice cream recipes from this book to share with you. In the meantime, here's my ideas for a backyard homemade ice cream bridal shower . . .
