We all scream for ice cream…ice cream cake that is! Keep the oven off this summer and stay cool with one of these 11 crave-worthy ice cream cake recipes.
Let’s face it, summer is HOT.
My kids and I are all about keeping things cool and easy during the blazing hot months, which makes ice cream everyone’s favorite.
But here’s the rub: Four of the five of us have summer birthdays – and I don’t like to make the same thing every year for my kids.
Which means we have to constantly find fun (and super easy) ways to celebrate without heating the house up too much.
Thankfully, there are dozens of simple ways to make festive (and tasty) ice cream cakes, and I’ve got some of the BEST here for you today.
Stock Up before You Get Started
What’s the point in making a cake if it isn’t pretty? Any of these products will make your ice cream cake recipes look like a million bucks, with the least amount of effort possible:
- An offset spatula is hands-down the BEST way to get gorgeous icing. (Tip: Get a long and a short one, you’ll be surprised how useful they are
- Some cakes need a good mixer. I love my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer so much that we don’t even own a hand mixer!
- I say it all the time: A pretty cake stand is essential for birthday parties!
- Don’t have room for a cake stand in the freezer. Make your cake on a cardboard cake circle so it can be easily stored in the freezer until it’s time to serve!
Now, let’s move on to the good stuff!
