How to Serve the Ice Cream

Toppings are also a fun, yummy option. Adding the toppings will be much easier if you choose the sundae route, but I'm sure the kids will find a way to stuff toppings on their ice cream cones. Provide toppings like syrup, whip cream, hot fudge, and all sorts of candy. Don't worry. The toppings aren't just for the kids!
