Everyone LOVES an Ice Cream Sundae Bar! Not only is it super fun but it’s a great display on a table too. Colorful and yummy! Ice Cream Bars can also be overwhelming for some people and can get messy and sticky. Here are some tips for having the perfect Ice Cream Sundae Bar!

  • Use a cupcake tin to hold your toppings. This keeps things nicely sorted plus you don’t have tons of different containers and spoons all over the table. People can easily and quickly see the different toppings to choose from. Helps eliminate messes, overwhelm and a line backing up.

  • Keep ice cream cold by placing the ice cream tubs into a larger tub filled with ice. Keeps the ice cream cold and allows guests to see the different flavors all at once.

  • Another option is to do premade scoops of ice cream in a large bowl. Place that bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice. Guests can just spoon up the premade scoops into their bowl.

  • Instead of placing jars of caramel, fudge, strawberry or other liquidy toppings straight on the table. Pour them into glass jars and display in a cool wire basket or decorative basket. Keeps things contained and allows guests to see quickly their options.

  • Keep the options simple. No need for 8 different flavors of ice cream of 20 different topping choices. People love the classics.

I love Ice Cream Sundae Bars! They are always a hit whether you are 1 or 100. The hardest part is deciding which toppings you’ll choose!
