National Ice Cream Cake Day is observed annually on June 27. In the height of summer, an ice cream cake is the perfect dessert.
An ice cream cake consists of any flavor of ice cream in the shape of a cake. It can include many different ingredients such as cake, cookie crumbs, sponge cake, fudge, fruit or caramel between the layers of ice cream. It is then frosted with either whipped cream or a similar icing. Ice cream cakes are kept frozen until served. They are typically decorated and served at a wide variety of parties.
Although the origin of the ice cream cake remains somewhat of a mystery, this popular dessert combines the classic summer treat, ice cream, with the time-honored celebratory cake, which makes it one of the best culinary inventions to date.
