Have you ever eaten an ice cream tower? You can learn how to draw an ice cream tower with the help of this simple, step-by-step food drawing tutorial.

When you order an ice cream cone, how many scoops do you usually get? Most people can only eat one or two.

But sometimes, people build towers of ice cream, balanced precariously on a cone! One reason for this is to enjoy many different types or flavors of ice cream.

The concept of the ice cream tower has gone beyond the food itself. Children's stacking games are available in which they must build an ice cream tower without letting it tumble. Ice cream towers even make it into comic strips.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

For example, in one Foxtrot comic, Paige makes a tower of different colored sherbet scoops in order to achieve "rainbow sherbet."

How hungry are you? How strong is your sweet tooth? You can draw a single scoop ice cream cone; a cone with three scoops; or tackle the entire ice cream tower!
