Serve Ice Cream in Fun Ways

Another great way to impress your guests and show off your creative side is to put together an ice cream topping bar. Get creative with your toppings – add fruit, nuts, or even sprinkles to make your ice cream even more irresistible. Be sure to have a variety of toppings on hand so that everyone can customize their ice cream creation.

For a unique touch, try serving your ice cream in unique ways. Instead of scooping it into bowls, try serving it in cones or cups, or even making your own ice cream sandwiches.
