From 12 flavours, one flavour can be selected in = 12 ways
From 10 candies, one candy can be selected in = 10 ways
From 8 toppings, one topping can be selected in = 8 ways
From 5 nuts, one nut can be selected in = 5 ways
Total ways to order with/without cream = 2 ways

Total Possible combinations = 12*10*8*5*2 = 120*40*2 = 9600

Answer: Option A
