What's better than cake with ice cream?

Let’s face it: cake is great on its own. Nothing beats a freshly-made cake topped with swirly, decadent frosting. Whether for dessert, a snack or breakfast, you can’t go wrong. However, one cannot survive on cake alone. When your slice of cake needs a little something extra, make ice cream your go-to option.

Here are our top cake and ice cream pairings for when it’s just been one of those days.

Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake

               Anything goes with chocolate: especially mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mint and chocolate is a winning combination in any scenario. In this case, the ice cream is refreshing and balances out the dense brownie cake. Its mint to be.

New York Cheesecake

               Cheesecake and ice cream may sound like they don’t mix, but we’re here to change your mind. A green tea or lemon sorbet is the perfect accompaniment to a rich creamy cheesecake. Try it for yourself!

Limoncello Cake

               Gingerbread isn’t only for the holidays! Pairing rich gingerbread ice cream with a lemon flavor is an unexpected combo. It’s a bold move that pays off. When life gives you lemons…

Vanilla Bean Cake

               Who doesn’t love a creamsicle? We’re fans of taking our Vanilla Bean Cake and serving it up with a scoop (or three) of orange sherbet for a dessert that screams summer. Orange you glad we suggested this?

Viennese Coffee Cake-Cinnamon

               This one is for those who can’t kick their caffeine habit. When coffee cake just isn’t enough for you, scoop on some coffee ice cream. Perfect for the days when you need an extra jolt.

Carrot Cake

               Carrot Cake seems like a cake that doesn’t need anything extra to complete it. However, if ice cream is a must, throw some butter pecan on top. The sweet flavor adds a unique taste to this rich cake. If this seems too over-the-top, have the cake with a scoop of vanilla.

Country Apple Pie

               I know we said cakes, but we had to include our Country Apple Pie! A la mode is the best way to enjoy this flaky and fruity pie. We prefer vanilla ice cream, but go for another flavor if you’re feeling adventurous. Maybe salted caramel?
