Ice Cream Making Essentials

All this talk about the end of summer and going back to school always comes with a last-ditch effort to fit in every summer activity. For me, that always means making a lot of homemade ice cream. In North Carolina, August is one of the hottest months of the year, and it always reminds me to stop procrastinating and finally pull out the ice cream maker.

Remember Popcorn Week and how fab it was to explore popcorn recipes for a whole week? Well, I teamed up with another group of bloggers to bring you a whole week of just ice cream recipes! We’re using the hashtag #weekofsundaes on social media this week, so be sure to follow along.

As I prepared for this week of icy sweet treats, I’ve been realizing I could really step up my ice cream parlor game. Ice cream makes me think of soft, pastel hues and shiny silver accents, and these ice cream making essentials fit perfectly. These are the things I think every ice cream lover who dares to try making their own ice cream needs in their kitchen! (At the end of this post, there’s a $100 Visa gift card giveaway that can help you stock your kitchen with some of these things!)

    Susannah, I need those little wooden spoons in my life–they are so cute! So sad I missed ice cream week this year but can’t wait for next year!

    That ice cream maker is so stinkin’ cute! And the cone holder! Thanks for the giveaway. And for making me want so much ice cream right now (never a bad thing).
