“What do you do if you’re the host of a Whisk pool party, and you have a freezer full of goodies (in case any customers need something right away!) ready to serve? You take out the ice cream (and some cookies, biscotti, and iced coffee, of course) for a refreshing treat on a hot summer day. Enjoy!” —Bini Waldner of Bini’s Bakes
