Ice cream logistics

I like to have a plan. Wedding day food is no exception. Earlier, I revealed my secret for reception dining. Here’s how I plan for it to go down.

Plan A: Beg, borrow, or steal a soft serve machine. Have a lucky volunteer man the pump, and have toppings set up on the table for guests to get their imagination on. Potential toppings: m&ms, gummy bears, crushed Oreos, sprinkles, chocolate covered raisins, various syrups (butterscotch, chocolate, caramel, magic shell).

Plan B: buy several big bowls and ice cream by the gallon. Wrap a warm towel around the gallon containers, wait about thirty seconds, then upend the containers in to the bowls. They come out perfectly formed. Put a scoop in each container and you’re done!

Plan A is easier but Plan B is a perfectly viable option, especially on short notice. I’ve done it on a small scale for cookouts or showers.

What wedding projects do you have a plan B for?
