How do I get the recipes for the other ice creams shown in the picture? I lose my recipe in the book for this and I love it!

Does anybody know where I can purchase this icecream cone stand? Since I live in India it needs to be a company who sends items out to us. Thanks.

I haven't made this recipe but have used ready made custard before to make ice cream and i agree that the flavour isn't strong enough, as it dulls when frozen. I would recommend addng a teaspoon of good vanilla extract or the seeds from half a vanilla pod.

Next time I would add a little more vanilla as the flavour is quite muted when frozen

Hi, I made this as part of a buffet dinner for my mother-in law's 80th birthday dinner. I doubled the quantities and added 500 ml of fresh mango puree to the mixture to serve as a fresh mango ice cream. [I churned it by hand & had to take it out of the freezer 15 min before serving]
