And, it has a little swirl on the top like the ice cream at Dairy Queen.”The diamond-design cone is also much like the wrapper on the Dairy Queen ice cream cones, Lauren said.Lauren enjoys looking at all the artwork at TroyFest because she loves to draw.“I like looking at the jewelry, too, but the thing that I thought about most was ice cream,” she said with a smile. “Having my design on a T-shirt will be awesome.
