On December 6th, you will be able to make ice cream for your winter holiday gatherings. The class will make Russian Tea Cake ice cream, Plum Pudding (this is a French version and sure to become a favorite), Holiday Fudge and the fourth flavor is an amazing, soothing sorbet that has everything you need when sore throats, sniffles, headaches and achy bodies strike.
