4 Ice Cream Cakes

Pavlova Cookies N’ Ice Creme Anglaise

Summer is really the only time I enjoy Ice Cream anymore (pregnancy was a whole different story!) One of my favorite summer time treats as a child was my mama’s ice cream cake. So, now I’m going to try making one for my kids. The ice cream cake she made had oreo cookie crust, mint ice cream and some sort of chocolate-y/carmel-y topping. I really need to see if she still has that recipe. It was AMAZING!

I found 4 ice cream cake recipes that I’ve bookmarked. (& I couldn’t leave out the ice cream cupcake!) Anyone else have a killer recipe?

Cinnamon Sheet Cake

Something about the simplicity of this cake caught my eye. The creamy frosting & the thought of rich cinnamon flavor makes my mouth water. Quite possibly the most perfect dessert with a hot cup of black coffee?
