Step 1

Open a new file (File > New) in Adobe Photoshop with the following settings.


Step 2

Fill background with the color #aff8fd.


Step 3

Using soft brush with white color #ffffff and draw a dot light in the center of background, then lower Opacity = 72% .


Step 4

Pick the Rectangle tool and set the values like this


Step 5

And you’ll get a vertical stripe. Fill it with white color #ffffff. Then we duplicate (Cmd + J) the stripe and place them as this image below.


Step 6

We place all of vertical stripes to a new folder. I named this folder as ” vertical stripe ” then lower Opacity = 40%


Step 7

Duplicate the (Cmd + J) the ” vertical stripe ” older , then we rename it as ” horizontal stripe “, and rotate this folder to 90 degree then we set lower Opacity = 30%


Step 8

We’re done with the background. Now we use Arial Black font and create this text. Right – click and rasterize the text. Place this text to a new folder and name it as ” Cone ” . Place a copy of the text shape off to the side of the artboard, which we will use later.


Step 9

Double – click on text layer, from menu choose Blending mode . Add ” Bevel & Emboss “.



Add ” Inner Shadow ”



Add ” Inner Glow ”



Add ” Inner Glow ”



And we got result like this


Step 10

Add layer mask for the ICE text, then we use hard brush to erase some parts like this image below.


Step 11

Duplicate the (Cmd + J) the ICE text, place the ICE copy under and move it down a little bit, keep the layer style as the way it is, but the ” Gradient Overlay “.



And we got result like this.



Duplicate the (Cmd + J) the ICE copy text, place the ICE copy under and move it down a little bit.


Step 12

Next, we will create stripes for the cone biscuit. Grab the Rectangle Tool and draw some lines like this image below.

Collect all of the stripe layers into a single group. Merge all of the shapes together. You can do this by selecting the groups by holding the Shift key, then right-click to open the options window and choose Merge layers. Now the shapes turn into image. Double-click on this layer and from menu choose Blending mode . Add ” Bevel & Emboss “.

Step 19

As you know , the ice cream is never perfect. Now we add layer mask on this layer and use hard brush to erase some outside part of the ice cream.


Step 20

Duplicate the ice cream part that we had created. In this step, we will create yellow ice cream for the text shape ” C ” . You should delete the layer mask for the text shape copy. Double-click on this layer and change the setting.





We change ” Inner Shadow ” setting.



We change ” Gradient Overlay ” setting.



And you should get result like this.

Step 24

Create a new layer and place it below, now we add shadow for the ice cream. We use soft brush with color #a25229 and draw the shadow then lower Opacity = 81%. You can use the layer mask to erase unwanted shadow area.


Step 25

Now, we will create chocolate syrup over the ice cream. First, we grab a copy of ICE text shape and place it on top of layers. Double – click on text layer, from menu choose Blending mode . Add ” Bevel & Emboss “.





Add ” Inner Shadow “.



Add ” Gradient Overlay “.

For additional toppings, we will create sprinkles over the chocolate. We use small hard brush to create some circle like this image.


Step 28

Double-click on this white sprinkles layer and use the settings below.
