When I was approached to join the Lucky Leaf Spring campaign and create a recipe using their pie filling, this Black Forest Ice Cream Cake immediately came to mind! With spring finally showing itself, I knew it was the perfect time for another ice cream cake. Plus, this flavor is one I’ve been wanting to make for a while and I was pumped to finally have a chance to make it!
Luck Leaf has a number of pie filling flavors that you can use in so many ways – pies, cakes, tarts, etc. They sent me cherry, blueberry and strawberry. I obviously used the cherry for this recipe, but I can’t wait to try the others.
Once I had this cake made and tasted it, I was so excited – it’s delicious! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know I have a special place for ice cream cakes and treats. There are so many fun things you can do and this one is now added to the list!
This cake starts with a chocolate cake. I opted for a cake mix, but you can easily make your favorite chocolate cake from scratch instead, if you prefer(this one is my favorite).
Once the cake is baked, mix together the ingredients for the ice cream. This recipe uses my favorite no ice cream machine needed ice cream recipe. It’s wonderful for ice cream cakes because not only do you not need the ice cream machine, but it’s also nice and thick even before freezing it. That allows you to layer the whole cake right away. No need to freeze the ice cream first.
Then, just make sure you have your Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie Filling ready to go and you are ready to layer away!
I was excited to try the Lucky Leaf Pie Filling and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a delicious filling. And it works perfectly in this cake. The cherry flavor is definitely the star here!
The combination of chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and cherry filling makes a great contrast in texture and flavor. I’m in love!
It’s also finally starting to get warm – yay for spring! I thought it’d never come! With the warm weather, this ice cream cake definitely needs to be added to your must-make list.
Remember how I said the other day that I hosted a baby shower this past Saturday? Well, the timing and flowers were perfect! They were purple, which was one of the colors for the shower and the flowers looked great!
And even better, FTD is extending a special offer of $10 off select Spring arrangements for everyone! So if you’re looking to send or order some flowers, be sure to get this deal.
And the cake – definitely make the cake.
