Mint Ice Cream Charm Tutorial
Hello everyone! I've finally gotten around to making a tutorial for all of you curious deviants. ^o^ It's my first tutorial so sorry if anything isn't clear. This is a technique I use, but I'm sure there are many other ways to make ice cream.

Please let me know if you use my tutorial. I'd love to see what you come up with! If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll try to answer as soon as possible, but if there are a bunch of the same question I'll just answer the first person so check out the comments just in case.

Thats so cool!! The only question I have is, when you made the ice cream look like it was scooped out of a tub (very cool), how did you make it have a wider rim at the bottom? (if that makes any sense... Happy
