Good morning people. Today I wish to put forward a speech in front of you on the topic ‘how to make an ice-cream’, and I wish your full co operation throughout the time that I will be presenting. Also kindly pardon me for any mistake that I commit in this course.
Ice-creams are favourites of all…children and adults alike, right? Ice creams score the top list when it comes to the world’s most famous dishes. Ice cream is basically a very simple dish but it comes in various flavours, various colours, various quantities and most importantly various prices.
Sometimes it called ‘ice-gola’, sometimes it is called ‘gelato’ and sometimes it is called ‘ice-cream’. Whatever the name be, the love for it remains the same.
Some children visit the dentist only with the hope that after the difficult time at the dentist’s they will get to have their favorite ice-cream. Ice creams are now available as various types. Some ice-creams are made without the ‘cream’, they are just ice and added flavours, those ice creams are cheaper.
Some ice-creams are made with rich milk or ‘cream’, which can be called an ice-cream. Whereas there is some other type of ice-creams which are made of fruits, frozen fruits and other different items. The most common flavours available in the milk ice-cream section are-mango, black current, vanilla, strawberry, butterscotch, orange etc.
