1998 Best Cake, Ice Cream

The Ice Cream Works

The best thing about an ice cream cake is that once it comes out of the freezer, the party has to begin. Think of two of your favorite flavors of ice cream, throw in a handful of M&M’s, add in a crunch of chocolate chip cookie, a layer of fudge for good measure, and it’s party time. Whether it’s a birthday party for 27 five-year-olds or a co-worker’s last day, The Ice Cream Works can customize and freeze your own personal subzero fantasy.
