When I saw the theme for this month’s Internal Incident Party I was a little nervous since I’m not much of an ice cream maker. Sure I could go out and get a fancy Ice Cream machine, but that’s just not in the budget right now. So I tried thinking outside of the box, maybe do a Sundae themed cupcake or a cake decorated to resemble an ice cream sundae. Then I thought back a few decades to when my family lived in southern VA and one of our favorite places to go as a family: Old Country Buffet. For me, and my sisters, it wasn’t about the food but rather all about the make your own sundae station that came at the end. Sprinkles, brownies, oreos, hot fudge, caramel sauce…if you could think of it they had it! So for my Sundae Party I decided to throw a mini ice cream party for my sister and her friends, complete with all the things that make sundaes so amazing. The other advantage of doing it with my sister and her friends: PEANUT BUTTER! To me a sundae is not a Sundae without some type of peanut butter product. So after confirming that peanuts were going to be okay I decided to just go peanut crazy. For our sundaes we had:
Chocolate Ice Cream
Vanilla Ice Cream
Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Each girl had their own style, ranging from the all they could get (my sister):
To the balanced (Jenn):
To the peanut butter heavy yet simply classic (Elli):
I also did a sundae but the picture disappeared along the way…which is fully possible since I was the one taking the pictures and not my normal camera man. It was a fun time, and after getting hyped up on sugar it was time for GLEE! The sundaes might not be from scratch but we most certainly put the PARTY into the IPP.
