ice cream cake wp Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Cake + Giveaway

I am about to be so ovah this damn winter!

Two days ago it was in the 70’s. I put our coats away, I whipped out my new flip flops with the pretty, big pom pom in the middle, and I also washed my car. I was all ready for sunny days, and then bam! … it’s raining, it’s cold, and the heat is on full blast.


Summer is playing hard to get, and I am about to force that diva to my dessert table with this ice cream cake.

Welcome, you beautiful, sweet, creamy Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Cake… I ♥ You.

I thought that this cake might help, not just me, but all youz that are dealing with cabin fever and crying for a sunny, warm day.

This deliciousness that you see is probably the easiest cake you’ll ever have to make. Really. It’s like embarrassingly easy.

Store bought pound cake + strawberry ice cream + whipped cream + strawberries = Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Cake. That’s all.
