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

Using soft brush with white color #ffffff and draw a dot light in the center of background, then lower Opacity = 72% .
Pick the Rectangle tool and set the values like this
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.
We place all of vertical stripes to a new folder. I named this folder as ” vertical stripe ” then lower Opacity = 40%
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%
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.
Double – click on text layer, from menu choose Blending mode . Add ” Bevel & Emboss “.
Add ” Inner Shadow ”
Add ” Inner Glow ”
Add ” Inner Glow ”

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