More Sundae Fun
• Share the love. Know someone who loves sundaes? Give them a sundae gift basket filled with everything they'll need to indulge their cravings: a sturdy ice cream scoop, a pair of sundae glasses and long spoons, and a selection of syrups and toppings.
• DIY sundaes. Set up a sundae bar so guests can create their own sweet masterpieces. To help things move along smoothly, pre-scoop the ice cream. Put individual scoops of various ice cream flavors in paper cupcake liners. Set them up on a tray, then freeze until it's time to serve.
• Think outside the traditional bowl. Use waffle bowls to hold your ice cream sundae, or start with an ice cream sandwich as your base and complement with tasty toppings.
