Cake + Ice Cream, A Match Made in Heaven

HVCreameryHVC Secret Recipe Book

Is there anything better than dessert at the end of a romantic date? We don’t think so. So, surprise that special someone and pair a great homemade ice cream with a moist and fluffy cake, and you are in lover’s heaven. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, we have compiled a few of our favorite combinations for you to try!

A Twist on Strawberry Shortcake

The first is combining our School’s Out Strawberry with a light and fluffy Angel Food Cake. Add our delicious strawberry ice cream and blueberries to your fluffy, delicate cake. School’s Out Strawberry is made with California strawberries and adds the perfect pop of “love-ly” color, so it is a perfect addition to your celebrations.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake

Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and relationships, now if your sweety loves those chocolate sandwich cookies with cream in the middle, there is nothing better than a cookie’s and cream ice cream cake. Use our Local Yodeler’s Cookies n’ Cream ice cream for your next homemade ice cream cake. The base is our velvety vanilla ice cream and is filled with chunks of cookies.

Tart and Sweet

Sometimes, opposites attract, so that’s why we suggest a sweet and sour pairing. Put Mayor Freddy’s Vanilla Bean with a lemon or coconut cake. Our vanilla flavor comes from Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans, so it would go perfect with any cake, but why not give it a fruity twist.

Feelin’ Adventurous

If you are looking to impress your “main squeeze” with a delicious cake and amazing ice cream, we have a few suggestions for you, the adventurous date. You could pair a German chocolate cake with our Blue Door Butter Pecan. Our sweet and salty pecan filled craft ice cream makes a decadent and unique pair with the coconut, chocolate, and pecans of the German chocolate. Another fun pairing is a white chocolate mint cake with our Doo Dah Mint ‘N Chip. The rich white chocolate with the decadent dark chocolate and fresh mint is a unique combo that will make everyone happy. The best part of our Doo Dah Mint ‘N Chip is there is no added green food coloring, and we use real mint leaves. In fact, you can see those little mint pieces if you look closely at your ice cream!

So, this Valentine’s Day, surprise your loved one with something delicious. We hope you try one of our ice cream and cake combinations. Let us know how it goes when you do! If you’re interested in any of our other craft ice cream flavors, you can check them out here!
