Ice Cream Bar Strategy Overview
Cooking Fever's Ice Cream Palor offers up wafer cones served with vanilla, kiwi or chocolate ice cream and a variety of toppings. In a different twist, instead of upgrading Interior items, you will be upgrading fun outdoor items like a Water Scooter and Trampoline. Because there are so few coin-only upgrades, it is best to focus on upgrading all the Kitchen appliances first.
See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.
Kitchen Items, Upgrade Costs and Availability
Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy.
Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering. After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items. A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.
First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts. There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.
Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level. Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered. Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.
Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips
- Continually click on your Wafer Cone Maker throughout the level so that it is always refilling the Wafer Cones. Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already cooking.
- You will want to upgrade your Ice Cream Machine and Wafer Cone Maker before Level 5
- You can add ingredients to your cone while it is filling up with ice cream
- Prepare ice cream in advance by only partially filling your cones up with ice cream before customers arrive.
- If you accidentally fill a cone before customers arrive and don't have room in the Fridge, hold it until customers arrive to prevent it from melting
- Don't forget that balloons explode if you fill them with too much air
- Don't put too much ice cream - it will overfill the cone
- Balloon will fly away if you give it to a wrong customer
- Don't leave the ice cream for too long, it will melt
- Don't forget to visit the City to collect your daily earnings
- Use the fridge to keep your ice cream from melting
- You can add ingredients to your ice cream while they are stored in the fridge
- Prepare as many ice cream cones in advance as you can
