"Sims a great combination. My family loves this but certainly prefers it without the chocolate chips. This is also a crowd pleaser because it is so gorgeous on thneplate."

"Beautiful end result. No where worth the time to make. In essence, it's a piece of ice cream! That's a lot of work for look without substance. Glad I tried it but won't be making it again"
