Every child loves two things: ice cream and cake. In fact, most adults love ice cream and cake too, but for whatever reason, the combination seemed much more prevalent when I was under the age of ten.
Well, all that is about to change when I tell you about I Love Ice Cream Cakes, a company that showcases delicious frozen ice cream cakes for all occasions, in many different styles and sizes, available in the bakery or freezer aisles in grocery stores nationwide.
Growing up, Carvel® ice cream cakes were a staple at almost every birthday party, and they still lend a fun and cheerful vibe to your table, regardless of the occasion. With whipped decorative frosting, layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream and of course, a thick layer of chocolate crunchies in between it all.
Even though my palate has refined over the years, opening up a whole new world beyond vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream, there is a lot to be said about the nostalgic classics. That rings especially true around Halloween, whether you’re having a last-minute Halloween party or simply looking to create some delicious, weeknight fun.
There are a few fun ways you can add nostalgia to your Halloween parties, from ice cream cake to candy apples to trick-or-treat inspired party favors. Whether you have kids or you just want to feel like one again, we have a few easy ways for you to embrace the Halloween spirit.
Peanuts® Harvest Ice Cream Cake is a great addition to any Halloween party spread, with creamy vanilla ice cream and mini chocolate chips topped with orange and green icing. If you can’t find the pumpkin shaped confection at your local grocery store, the Carvel celebration cakes are a great option to add some festivity to any celebration or occasion. With brightly colored sprinkles and frosting, it’s really hard to go wrong.
Here are a few fun ways to serve your ice cream cake.

Dip Your Apples
Caramel apples are another fun throwback to childhood, although admittedly they’re a lot more fun pre-orthodontia (because we all remember those years, right?). Even so, there are plenty of ways that you can have your caramel apples and eat them too.

Get Creative with Cupcakes
Cupcakes are the perfect bite sized snack to round out your dessert table. If you’re serving ice cream cake, cupcakes are a fun way to offer up a different option for those in your group who aren’t ice cream eaters (I didn’t know those were a group that even existed until I started dating and eventually moved in with one).
