We are proud to be one of the largest if not the largest ice cream event companies devoted to Events in Arizona. Creative Ice Cream and Events started in 1986 in the VF Outlet mall. We served up ice cream, drinks, and food to all the busy mall patrons. All the while serving the great state of Arizona, as well as Southern CA and Nevada with our catering. Ice cream socials, barbecues, burgers, breakfasts, corporate events or full service weddings, you name it, we catered it! After 22 years, we decided to leave VF mall and expand to a full ­service restaurant while still doing catering to our many corporate clients.

We now have come full circle and are back at the VF mall (now called Power Square) doing our catering, but still serving up plenty of goodies for the community and those who frequent the mall. Fudge, ice cream, our award winning savory sandwiches, wings, breakfast items, and other tasty snacks are available. We offer full­ service dining or quick service so you can eat on the go, or call in and pick up something to go. We also have a great bar to enjoy your meal after shopping all the great deals throughout the mall.

Come see us again and keep us in mind for all your catering needs, birthdays, weddings, corporate events, and fundraising. For more information contact us via website or phone.

Our Apple Dumpling Cafe moved to three different locations, each busier and more successful than it’s previous location.

Our Gilbert location became a hit around the community and valley wide, getting recognition from the East Valley Tribune, Fox 10 news, and being named 2013 best restaurant in Queen Creek with honors at the Taste of Gilbert.

After many successful years with Apple Dumplings, and 15+ grandkids, we decided to sell Apple Dumplings so we (Floyd, Tyler, and Anna) could re­focus their attention to catering and Sue could focus on her grandchildren and community involvement.

Here are just some examples of the weddings and other events we’ve done:
