Rachael Ray's Root Beer Float Recipe
This recipe takes 5 minutes and yields 4 servings.
1 pint vanilla bean ice cream
2 quarts root beer
Hang a large, well packed scoop of
vanilla ice cream on the edge of a fountain glass or other tall
drinking glass. Fill the glass 3/4 full with root beer. Set the
fountain glass on a salad plate, underlining the glass for overflow.
Serve floats with straws and parfait spoons. When you are ready to
enjoy the floats, knock the ice cream into the root beer and watch it
fizz up as the ice cream floats. Yummy! This is the simplest and my
most favorite fountain drink!

Why remember guests from a dusty old,
paper guest book? Signature platters get displayed as wonderful, keepsake mementos! A
guest book platter is a ceramic plate that has been hand painted with
a picture and personalized text in a theme connected to your special
event. Invite your guests to sign on the platter with a special
ceramic marker (the ink is non-toxic) and you will have a
one-of-a-kind, permanent, porcelain heirloom. Platters come in
different shapes and sizes depending on your preference and the
number of signatures you expect to have on it. After the party, the
signed platter is cured in your home oven which then permanently
seals the painted design and signatures.
Guest book platters are a unique way to
preserve a visible record of the people that attended your special
event! They are a great idea for an engagement, wedding, rehearsal
dinner, anniversary, shower, birthday, new baby, graduation,
retirement, holiday or ... any special event! Chose from a pre-made
design or custom design your own platter!
