Tips for Making an Ice Cream Board:
When creating an ice cream board, it’s best to use a board that has edges so that no toppings roll off the board. It is okay though to use one without edges, just be sure to keep everything in place.
When starting to design your board, start with the ice cream. These are best done with pints as they fit the best.
Next, add your liquid toppings such as the strawberry sauce, hot fudge, and caramel as well as your cones and bowls. When this is done, then move on to the next biggest item.
Work on your board from the largest of items to the smallest. Use the smallest items to fill in the holes and gaps in the board.
Once done, it’s time to serve it up and enjoy.
This is a fun treat for a pool party!
