Give this festive ice cream cake from our Test Kitchen a try. Layers of lovely ice cream and cranberries will delight your guests, and they won't believe that the melt-in-your-mouth crust is light, but it is!
“I found a recipe similar to this in a cookbook and make up my own variation,” notes Karen Grant of Tulare, California. She adds, “My husband always chuckles at me, because I seldom make a recipe as it is called for-I always think I have a better tasting way!”
Not only does this make-ahead dessert go over big with company, but it calls for only four ingredients. If you can't find coffee-flavored ice cream, dissolve instant coffee granules in warm water and stir into vanilla ice cream.
THIS pretty dessert is an impressive end to any meal. Refreshing and light, it's just the right touch for every sweet tooth.
I saw it pictured in a magazine many years ago and decided to try it. It's always been a hit at my house.

This tempting take on the much-loved cake roll features a from-scratch chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and a layer of berry jam. Garnished with hot fudge and whipped topping, the slices are hard to resist.
I developed this as a quick birthday cake for a friend recovering from surgery. Angel food cake cake be used instead of pound cake if you prefer, and I've also made it in a loaf pan.—Phyllis Kendall, Hazelwood, Missouri
