Going beyond just making ice cream and creating sundaes I like to delve into lots of other interesting areas such as the history of ice cream, ice cream sculpting and how this wonderful food is a part of our lives. I even have pages on ice cream and movie stars and US Presidents! You can find them and more in my Special Features section.
