Summer Ice Cream Cake Ideas
When summer is in full swing with pool parties, impromptu cookouts, and kids on summer break, ice cream cakes are the perfect go-to for summer entertaining. In honor of National Ice Cream Month this July, we teamed up with some of our favorite bloggers to get their best twist on ice cream cakes. From a DIY double-decker ice cream cake to homemade chocolate hazelnut hot fudge – here are a few ways to take your ice cream cake to the next level.
