Desserts Task Force

A task force dedicated to the best part of a meal.

About About the Desserts Task Force[edit]

Welcome to the Desserts task force! Whether you have a big sweet tooth or just want to help out Wikipedia, this is the place for you.


This task force started out as a WikiProject designed to be a complete resource on ice cream topics including shops, brands and frozen desserts in general. Unfortunately, interest in this project dropped off and it was changed to a task force and merged into the Food and Drink WikiProject. It has been rededicated to the more general, though no less tasty, subject of desserts.


You can join the project by adding your name to the participants list and placing one of the user boxes ({{User Brr1}} or {{User Brr2}}) on your user page.

Community forums[edit]

In 2008, a community forum was established to help manage common goals of the associated Food and Drink WikiProjects. The inactive discussion is located here.

Goal specific forums
  • Guidelines forum - This forum has been set up for the various Food and Drink projects to develop a set of Manual of Style guidelines for use in articles under the auspices of all the related Food and Drink WikiProjects and task forces. This would be similar to the MoS guidelines for biographies or legal articles.
  • Restaurant notability guidelines discussion - This guideline is intended to extend WP:CORP, in no way to replace its purpose, in regard to restaurants. It is also not intended to replace, supplant, or otherwise alter the standard notability requirements.

Article information[edit]


  • To create/expand articles relating to ice cream by:
  • Giving history about the brand/company
  • Building a comprehensive list of flavors for the brand
  • Give consistent information about each brand
  • An in-depth history to the ice cream inc how it was first made.
  • Expand articles on technology used in commercial ice cream production
  • (Note: Please feel free to add goals for this WikiProject)
