Ice Cream Cakes are great for summer get togethers, but they really are ideal for any special occasion, anytime of the year and are the ultimate birthday cake! I started buying Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cakes for my kids when I no longer felt like making them a ‘real’ birthday cake (on their actual birthday) AND a birthday party cake. Now I request an ice cream cake for my own birthday and that’s in the middle of January! This cake was inspired by my Neapolitan Ice Cream Cake on this site!
