Strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate: These three colors are nostalgic for many of us, reminding us of the hot summers and ice cream parties of childhood. This cake is easy to make and shows off your creativity in the kitchen with the three different layers — cereal, ice cream, and whipped cream. You don’t even have to turn on the oven. The combination of soft ice cream and crunchy puffed rice will offer a great textual contrast. Plus, it’s just fun.
Before cake time, consider this Curried Carrot Soup recipe or this Cedar Planked Salmon with Herbed Yogurt Sauce recipe. Pair your meal with our Peach Bellini recipe or a classic Champagne Cocktail recipe.
