First, I had to chase around the manager at Sam’s Club to get my favorite 54 oz bag of Skittles in order to make my ice cream cake and my slam dunk shooter cups. It seems the display wasn’t on the floor yet! Oh My! Luckily, they found it and set it up right on the candy aisle with the coolest topper for the display. You have to see that court.


Then it was home to make the slam dunk shooters. First, came the chase around the kitchen from my two teenage boys that would not let me open the bag without some Skittles popping into their mouths before it went into the ice cream cake nor the shooters. The candy chase was on!

It’s really amazing how three pipe cleaners and a left over cup from new years can amuse your teenage boys for hours. Simply punch a hole in the cup. Attach two pipe cleaner through the hole and wrap. Then twist them together to make a your goal post. Loop the top for the basket and twist it off on the goal post.

You can use another piece to make your basket look pretty if you want like I did here. Just bend into small sections and twist off at the back of the basket. You can slam dunk the Skittles or you can go for a 3-Pointer but just be careful not to rebound the rainbow! (this post may contain affiliate links)

    1. The recipe suggest letting the cake thaw a bit the reason is that the ice cream is so hard and the skittles when it first comes out. We’ve found waiting about 10 minutes is perfect for the skittles and the cake to be both easy to eat. This also depends on time of year and climate. In Texas, in the summer this can be quite faster that just 10 minutes.
