                    I can’t imagine that caramel goes with that tart passion fruit flavor. I guess that’s why I’m not a level 3 chef.

                        I feel like level 1 had no idea what he was doing, he just wanted to look as professional as he could

                                          Lvl 3 wasn't a Sundae it was a gelato/sorbet and it's a more professional/formal desert.

                                            The first guy is an absolute disappointment... He could've done better by just mixing condensed milk and cream...

                                              Unpopular opinion. Ice cream is different than a gelato, or a custard, or a sherbert/sorbet. You can't lump them in together. They're making different items.
