Make the World Taste Good

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
Hot Fudge
Caramel Sauce
M&Ms
Reese’s Pieces
Sprinkles
Whipped 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.

  1. That is a great party idea… everyone coming up with their sundae version. ohh.. and I love GLEE!!

  2. Looks like it was good fun. I'd love to try peanut butter ice cream. I had a chuckle at where you have called it the 'Internal Incident Party' – which might be a very cute typo, but is kind of apt, after that much sugar, I would have an 'Internal Incident' I think ;)) I love GLEE too, although I am probably too old to admit that!

  3. Awesome idea! I used to love going to Pizza Hut all-you-can-eat when I was little (blergh!) mainly for the dessert station, which wasn't all that tasty but so cool that you got to do it all yourself :)

  4. I think it's so fun that you used this as an oportunity to turn our little virtual party into the real thing!
