      I agree with this. Dandy Don has done a couple of ice cream socials for our company, and everyone has always enjoyed it.


    2. also sweetcake.com moving till middle of May do a great dessert set up pricey though


        1. How funny.... as I walked by Pinkberry on Sawtelle the other day, I was thinking that they could easily start a mobile froyo biz. With that catchy tune they now have on their website and a cute truck that's painted lime green/pink/white, how cute would that be?

          1. Only one place to go - - google Heartschallenger. Fantastic old fashioned ice cream truck (painted in the coolest way) but filled w/ the most imaginative ice cream and candy treats (i.e. Japanese, old fashioned i.c. bars) It's really great - so great the owner is expanding to New York this summer.

              I have emailed and called Heartschallenger about 50 times...and NO response...

                I know the owner has been in NY (not that that's an excuse). If I get additional contact info, I'll post it here.

            2. I have used MARIPOSA ICE CREAM IN SAN DIEGO for my daughters birthday party. They are however in San DIego. We did sundae's cone's etc. It was her 1st birthday, totally inapropriate for her, but it was great for the adults and big kids.

              Try a neighborhood shop.

              I am aware that there are Mr/Mrs Softy Trucks.

              Good Luck!

              1. i just went to a shower that Sweet Sugar on Melrose did. It was called the Sugar Bar and great stuff. I don't think the store has opened yet, but the owner Ashlee has been doing a bunch of catering and it was adorable. The website has the general info:


                Leave a message for Ashlee. She's great!
