Cake and ice cream. Delicious on their own, but so much better together! It’s time to master your skills and make the ice cream cake of your dreams!

The best part of working with ice cream? No rules. That means you can combine any flavors for something unforgettably delicious. (If you’ve been a fan for a while, you’ve seen some of our favorite ice cream cakes already!)

Ice cream cake is perfect any time, but if you’re already missing summer vacation days like we are, this is one way to bring the tastes of trips Up North home.

Introducing our latest creation: the Mackinac Island Fudge Ice Cream Cake. It’s packed with layer upon layer of fudgy flavor—just like its namesake ice cream flavor. Our favorite part (besides the ice cream)? No baking required!

So gather your ingredients, don’t be afraid to be a little extra with the candy, and transport yourself to a Mackinac Island state of mind.
