Making Ice Cream Cakes at Home Has Never Been Easier – or More Creative
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Cake, that is.
Ice cream cakes are a special treat, but store-bought ones can be so expensive. And, let’s be honest, nothing from a store is ever as good as homemade. Ice cream cakes are the perfect celebratory dessert for summer birthdays, and great fun for anyone who loves baking. It’s a race against the clock as you try to assemble your creation before your main ingredient melts into a sticky puddle. Just imagine how good that first bite will taste after you’re done? And licking fingers during the process is more than permitted. We recommend it.
Our own Lauren Chattman wrote a whole book on Icebox Desserts and this Devil Dog Icebox Cake is sheer genius – look at it in the image above. Those are Devil Dog snack cakes in there! Kids love making this as much as eating it – adults too. If you don’t tell anyone about the snack cakes, they probably won’t know, but we love telling people and watching their faces for a response. They smile every single time.
