First, after placing the image as a template I set up my layers(1 for the cone and 3 for the separate ice cream scoops) I proceeded by using the pen tool no make the cone with 3 anchor points and no handles I kept the cone as an open shape as the first scoop of ice cream would cover the top. when working with the scoops I kept the first and second scoops open as the first would be covered by the second and the second would be covered by the third. I used the pen tool for the whole object as it had smooth and precise curves and the pen tool felt to be the right approach. The bottom of the ice cream it was allowed me to come to this conclusion as it could it would hard to replicate using any of the other tools in AI. This helped me further my knowledge in what should or shouldn't be done with the pen tool and helped me to observe to see how i can create complex shapes of my own.
