National Ice Cream Cake Day

National Ice Cream Cake Day

Everyone knows that there is a National Ice Cream Day, and a National Cake Day. But there is a National Ice Cream Cake Day. This day celebrates the combination of both these delicious treats.

It is essential to understand the history of National Ice Cream Cake Day. Each of the two components of this delicious combination have their own stories that, just like a good romance, will eventually come together to create an amazing story.

Although ice cream and cake were likely created before the New World was settled by Europeans. Ice cream cake is now more popular in the United States than Australia.

Ice cream has a history that goes back over 1500 years. It originated as an icy, milky confection that was loved by the Tang dynasty’s emperors. Many consider the original recipe for milk-based sorbet to have been created in the middle 1600s.

Originating from ancient times, the earliest form of cake was more bread-like in appearance and sweetened with honey. Cake as we know it today, made with refined flour, baking soda, and sugars, was not invented until the middle of 19th century.

Baked Alaska, a relative to ice cream cakes, was invented in 1867 and named after the American acquisitions of Alaska. This dessert is similar to an individual ice-cream cake. It has sponge cake and ice-cream, but it’s topped with meringue, then baked.

Ice cream cakes can be eaten at birthdays, graduations and other celebrations. They can be made from layers of icecream with real cake or layers of icecream with actual cake. Or the layers can be shaped into a “cake” which can then be decorated with icing or whip cream. Sometimes, unique flavors are added such as brownie crumbs, sandwich cookies, brownies, or candies.

There are a few ways Ice Cream Cake Day can be celebrated and observed in deliciously unique ways.
