KICK IT UP A NOTCH
DNCE’s catchy tune “Cake by the Ocean” may get you dancing on the beach, but what good is cake without ice cream? That’s where the Soft-Shell Ice Cream Ball (from $38, at Mountain Equipment Coop, mec.ca) comes in. The ball is essentially an oldfashioned ice-cream machine that you kick around instead of churn. Put rock salt and ice in one half and cream, sugar and fruit in the other. Play with it for 20 to 30 minutes, and then all you need is a cone.
