A lot of people know that I have a major sweet tooth. Like, big time. It takes a special kind of woman to be able to admit that I could eat ice cream for all three meals basically every day, but here I stand. (This might explain why I don’t keep ice cream or sweets around the house…) With the ice cream truck practically stalking the neighborhood on an hourly rotation these days I find myself completely inspired by sweet, nostalgic treats perfect for kids parties or family gatherings this summer. Who doesn’t love a dish of whimsy now and again?
