You can never go wrong with an ice cream cake, and you don’t need a special occasion to throw one in your freezer, but many of us make the splurge for our birthdays. You probably already know that each birthday has a zodiac sign associated with it. Zodiac signs are a fun way to read more about oneself and those around us. Western astrology associates certain personality traits and characteristics with each astrological sign, making each as unique as the next. 

We’ve all found it fun to read through our horoscope, but have you ever thought what ice cream cake an Aries would like? Or even how large of a cake to get for a Leo’s birthday party? To add some extra flair to your next party, we’ve matched each zodiac sign to their perfect ice cream cake.
