Ice Cream Sundaes

Sundaes evolved from the ice cream sodas that were originally served at North American soda fountains. The sundae's invention can be accredited to a law prohibiting the serving of ice cream sodas on Sundays. To get around this law, soda was omitted from the dessert. The dessert was thus named Sundae in honor of the day it was served. The spelling was changed so it would not be sacrilegious.

Building from the bottom, here are the necessary ingredients, to keep on hand, to make a sundae anytime.

  • Ice Cream (Choose your favorite flavors, anything goes)
  • Syrups
  • Sauces
  • Whipped cream or topping in a spray can (homemade can be piped on.)
  • Toppings
  • Maraschino Cherries (with or without a stems)
