We all scream for the sweet taste of ice cream. Entering their fourth season of bringing ice cream to the masses, Erica and Stephanie Belk have a pretty sweet deal on wheels. The Frozen Sin owners have fully stocked their truck with delicious doughnuts and sandwich-shaped ice cream sandwiches (now patented) and have now entered the catering game. Can you say best graduation party ever?
“My dad is an entrepreneur, but I’ve been a chef since I was 15 and I knew I wanted to start something,” said Erica of Frozen Sin. “We wanted the name to be something intriguing to get people in.”
While you may see the Frozen Sin truck out at farmers markets and events, they can also come to your home for private catering. With graduation parties on the horizon, what better way to customize your teen’s special day?
“It’s a really fun time. We pull up in front of where the party is and we have speakers on the outside of the truck playing music so the guests can get pumped up,” said Stephanie, who also mentioned a new pushcart, which looks like the truck and is very popular at graduation parties. “We hand them an ice cream sandwich and a bag of doughnuts as well. Everything is prepared.”
The duo pride themselves on doing everything fresh and natural, but they will customize flavors whenever possible at clients’ requests. For parties, Frozen Sin arrives with five or six different flavors of ice cream sandwiches. The cookie part is vanilla based for funfetti, snickerdoodle or lemon cookies, while the brownie cookie is a hit among chocolate lovers.
“We come up with so many different ideas throughout the season. If people say they want a flavor and it’s not on the menu, we will create it,” said Erica, adding that their frozen hot chocolate, which was a custom flavor is one of the fan favorites.
“Most our clients go for the staples: funfetti, hot chocolate, cookie dough and cookies and cream, but whatever they get is always going to be unique and delicious,” added Stephanie.
Spring and summer flavors include mint chocolate chip (made with fresh mint leaves from the Belk’s backyard), dulce de leche ice cream with crushed pretzels and potato chips, cherry pie; passion fruit mango, peach raspberry and lemon curd blueberry ice cream sandwiches. Frozen Sin buys produce from the market fresh every week and keeps ingredients as local as possible. However, they only make certain flavors seasonally. Their doughnuts are also a delight for a hungry graduate.
“Our most popular doughnut is S’mores, which is covered in chocolate, crushed graham crackers and a toasted marshmallow that we torch in front of the customers,” said Erica. Fall flavors include pumpkin mousse and caramel apple and the churro doughnut and chocolate raspberry doughnut with fresh raspberry preserves is also a favorite.
“When we started the truck, our product was so different than anything else out there and people loved it,” said Stephanie. “We are nut free and also have dairy-free and gluten-free ice cream as well because we want everyone to be able to get what they want.”
