Banana Split
 Dampen the waffle cone and place in covered moistened bowl. (Make your own if you can)
Place in microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften cone.  Place cone on cutting board and with
thin blade knife, cut the side of the cone against the board to avoid cracking/chipping. Rotate
cone and cut other side leaving 2 halves.  Place 3 scoops (your favorite flavors) ice cream sideby-side
on plate and immediately apply whipped cream across all 3 scoops. Set the 2 halves of
sugar cone into the bed of whipped cream creating the Banana Hammock.
 Place the peeled banana into the hammock and quickly (ice cream is melting) drizzle the 3
toppings over the banana. Top with cherries.
