Ella le da helado.


Explanation:
No hay mucho más que explicar sobre los datos que das.
Tal cual se ofrece, la traducción es así, pero si tienes dudas sería bueno escribir algo más sobre el contexto en el que se encuentra, aunque personalmente no conozco ningún tipo de doble sentido en inglés con esta frase.

Le ofrece un helado


Explanation:
La traducción de la palabra ice cream depende del país del destinatario, por ejemplo, en Argentina, se traduce pos helado. La palabra "mantecado" no se usa.-
El pronombre "ella" -aunque es gramaticalmente correcto- generalmente se suprime porque en Español se usa el sujeto tácito -que no existe en inglés.-
El verbo "to give" en este caso, se puede traducir por el verbo "dar u ofrecer".-
Al decir "le ofrece", "le" actua como objeto indirecto, con lo cual reemplaza a "him". Es incorrecto, decir le ofrece un helado a él.-

Ella le da un cono de nieve


Explanation:
The word 'barquillo' has never used in Mexico and North America. It is used in a few South American countries.
The word helado can be either a sherbet type or ice cream. Nieve is real ice cream.
