When I think of Summer the first two things that come to mind are the beach and campfires. Even though We LOVE s’mores and eat them all year round. The best way to enjoy s’mores in the summer is with icecream and this cake is so cute!
The ice cream inside the cake stays frozen while the s’mores topping toasts golden brown. Don’t ask how – just say wow.
