Cake and ice cream have been a match made in heaven for centuries, and almost everybody loves the combination. Thanks to blogger, Kelly Mikolich, in her excellent cookbook, The Ultimate Ice Cream Cake Book: 50 Fun Recipes to Satisfy Any Sweet Tooth, everyone can make and enjoy cake and ice cream treats at home.

The first chapter, Ice Cream Cake 101, covers ice cream makers, different bases for different types of ice cream, as well as cakes that are ideal for filling with ice cream and freezing. Equipment is also discussed, and by reading this chapter, cooks will be ready to create perfect treats at home, whether for birthday parties, anniversaries, dinner parties, etc.

This cookbook contains dozens of unique flavors of cake and ice cream. The recipes are easy to follow, although most of the cakes involve several steps and some cakes require a long list of ingredients. This is not a book filled with quick and easy delights; rather the recipes are labors of love and are well-worth the time taken to create the dishes. The cakes and ice creams are all made from scratch, which makes them even more special. Some are very time consuming, but others not so much.

There are a few photographs to show how beautiful cake and ice cream can be, but a cookbook like this should have a photograph of each recipe. It’s nice for cooks, from beginning to expert, to know just how the finished product will look, especially when putting a lot of time and effort into these desserts.

Nevertheless, this is a great book to have on the bookshelf, especially during the summer months when something cool is perfect for backyard celebrations, as well as parties and get-togethers. Mikolich’s ideas are excellent and some even innovative.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
