Vintage Sundae Bar

One of the girls just had a birthday and she is not a cake person. This year she wanted a sundae bar.


I pulled out the old fountain glasses from a restaurant my folks owned before I was even born.
I filled the glasses with her favorite candies. I also used a vintage tray and hobnail dish. We had the typical toppings as well but this was a hit with the kids and adults. It is always fun to make your own dessert.


There is the birthday girl.


 You can see what she chose last year for her un-cake dessert here.

  9. I love this idea! Wouldn't it be fun to just call some friends over for ice cream one night?

  10. I could go for that. I am not a cake person either. Ice cream is so much better. Especially a Sunday bar!

  11. This is a great idea to use instead of cake. I have often made cheesecakes instead of the traditional cake, the kids seem to prefer them...

    Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl!
