Since my husband is not a cake fan, I need to be creative when making his birthday dessert. This year, I came up with this ice cream roll. It went over big with everyone...including our little daughter, Kaitlynn. A mint sprig makes a pretty garnish.
“This is a very festive dessert for Christmas,” assures Holly Dicke of Plain City, Ohio. “The angel food cake makes it less heavy than many traditional holiday recipes. My husband loves it, and I love it because it’s so simple and convenient during a hectic season!”
I discovered this recipe online and changed it a little to suit my family's tastes. It always gets lots of compliments because people love the hot fudge topping and unique cookie crust. My husband says it's the best ice cream cake he's ever had.
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.
The custard-like ice cream is so rich and creamy that it tastes like you fussed for hours. But it's easy to make...and pretty, too. I like to serve it with chocolate fudge sauce. -Irene Yoder

"Our family loved a dessert we had at a local restaurant, so I invented my own version for a birthday party," explains Monica Rush of Reading, Pennsylvania. "It was a big hit. It's simple to make ahead and just pull out of the freezer when you need it."
This refreshing ice cream cake roll, drizzled with mouthwatering homemade chocolate sauce, adds a fresh finale to any summer meal, according to Sonja Wilhau of Grundy Center, Iowa. "The cake roll is so pretty that it creates a special occasion whenever I serve it."—Sonja Wilhau, Grundy Center, Iowa
