99 Ice Cream Cone Recycled Felt Food Sculpture by British Cream Tea

The quintessential British summer seaside treat…the 99. A crunchy wafer cone stamped with panels of waffle pattern holding a swirl of soft vanilla ice cream with a chocolate flake stuck into the side. No-one really knows where the name "99" comes from...there are many theories out there! Made from felt and stuffed with polyfil. Completely hand sewn, quilted, embroidered and stuffed. Each 99 is hand cut, sewn and embroidered, the ice ream swirl, cornet waffle pattern and flake are completely unique on each 99. 9 inches or 23 cms long x 2.5 inches or 7 cms diameter at the ice cream's top.
