Now that we have our DIY Ice Cream Cart, the Little Miss just couldn’t resist setting up shoppe. 🙂
Welcome to The Dolly Ice Cream Shoppe!
Let me hand it over to our lovely ice cream server, Angelina!
Angelina: Hi guys! Let me give you a tour of the place!
Over here is the ice cream freezer cart. We have a wide variety of flavours!
That ice cream sure looks delicious!
This is where the customers choose their ice cream flavours.
We have popsicles and other frozen treats too.
Next, is the ice cream counter. This is where people can sit to eat their ice cream.
I must say, there are quite a few treats here!
We’ve got banana splits, milkshakes, root beer floats, frozen yogurt, even rock candy!
(All ice cream treats above are Sophia brand)
Don’t forget the ice cream cake pops! 🙂
Over here are a few of the topping options that we offer. Chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and my personal favourite, gummy bears!
This is the appliance counter. We have a blender for blending, a mixer for mixing, and a milkshake machine, well, for making milkshakes silly! 🙂
These are my favourite! State of the art! 🙂
Here is a closer look at the blender.
It’s perfect for making smoothies!
And this is the mixer.
We use this to work the really stiff ice cream.
It definitely comes in handy for mixing different flavours together.
Last is the milkshake machine. It used to be a coffee maker, but it works wonders on milkshakes!
Okay, over on this side, we have more tubs of ice cream!
We usually store extra stock in the ice cream freezer, but this just came today, and has yet to be put away. There are also some soda pops to be put away.
(Ice cream tubs are lotion from the dollar store. The mini pop cans used to hold candy)
On this side, we have another ice cream stand. ❤
Lots of options, including ice cream sundaes!
Ice cream goodness!
We are fully stocked and open for business!
Here comes a customer now! 🙂
Angelina: Hello! What can I get for you today?
Kit: I just can’t decide. Everything looks so good!
Angelina: Might I suggest something from the ice cream freezer?
Angelina: Or perhaps a milkshake? We do have the best milkshakes in town, you know.
Kit: The choice is just too difficult!
Angelina: Here, why don’t you take a look at our menu? How much were you looking to spend?
Kit: Is this enough?
Angelina: Oh my! Okay, one triple deluxe special, coming right up!!
Angelina: (adds quietly) With extra gummy bears.
The tip jar. 🙂
Here is a quick tutorial for how to make the ice cream counter.
Take two sturdy rectangular boxes. I used a Newberry doll box and a SmartPop popcorn box. Using both hot glue and wood glue, secure them together in an L shape.
I used pieces of scrap wood for the counter top. Secure them to the top of your boxes with wood glue. I adhered faux marble contact paper to the surface of my counter. I trimmed the counter in mini moulding painted metallic silver.
Next, I covered both boxes completely with dark wood coloured contact paper.
Trim the bottom of your countertop with metallic scrapbook paper, and the top under the moulding with chrome washi tape.
And you’re done!
Have a crafty sort of day!
