ice cream---and cake

I have always loved the idea of an ice cream social or just adding an ice cream bar to a party--

I remember my friend Sharon having us over for a Sunday afternoon ice cream social---it helps that she lives in a huge Victorian style house with a massive front porch---it was something out of a magazine----she had every topping imaginable and a beautiful sunny day too---

a couple of birthdays ago I decided to have an ice cream party with Frank's birthday celebration----yeah I didn't go fancy with the ice cream display but we sure had fun assembling the sundaes to everyone's liking-

best of all--my son Colin helped the kids get the ice cream out---that's the worst job----

one thing I learned---the fruit toppings could have been omitted and more gummy bears and worms would have been devoured----

next time I am gonna get way cuter bowls--


  1. Two of my favorite treats, especially when they're the same.

  5. Hi Stephen -lucky you!!-they have the best ice cream cakes :)

  6. Always fun to make your own sundae at an ice cream party like this. I know, it is so hard to get ice cream out. I usually set the container out for 15-20 minutes to let it soften a bit.


  7. I wish I could have soft serve Betty :)
