In college, I had a tradition which we called Sunday Sundeas! It’s a fabulous (and delicious) tradition and I encourage you to jump on the dessert band wagon. And, I’ve got just the place for you to do it! Home Kone (Home Kitchen Cafe’s new bakery/ice cream place) has a sticky bun ice cream sundea that is bound to be divine. Or, if you want to stay closer to Camden, have you been to Spoon yet? They have frozen yogurt and then you get to decorate it yourself – berries, nuts, chocolates, etc. – go nuts!
