How to build an epic sundae station

Make cooling down this summer a can’t-miss event with hot tips for setting up an ice cream sundae station, and simple hacks for icy summer treats.

Steps to success

  1. Ice cream is the hero of every cone or sundae. Calculate about 1½ cups per person and have bowls of warm water on hand to ensure clean and easy scooping.
  2. Set sauces out on plates to catch drippings and avoid extra mess.
  3. Keep the whole station inside or in a well-shaded area to avoid melting in the sun, and place the tubs on dry ice in coolers (regular ice will only accelerate melting).
