"This recipe looks very delicious and easy to make for someone's birthday."

"Made a crust with graham crumbs instead of the cones. A little too sweet; probably should use 1/2 jar of the toppings next time. Oh, also will freeze the first layer for an hour or so before adding the hot fudge.... it sank right in the softened ice cream."
