    My favorite S’mores Ice Cream Cake Recipe

    When I was a little girl, perhaps one of the best memories I have is biting into a S’mores. When I think of chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers, I think of nostalgia. I know that many of you can agree, which is why this S’mores Ice Cream Cake is going to be such a big hit. 

    Today, I get to sit down and enjoy treats, and I’m so thankful for that. I’m still a firm believer that you can make fancy treats for your family, without it taking up too  much of your time.

    Who created the first S’more? 

    As you create this cake, you may be asked a lot of questions like who created the first S’more? I was actually quite curious about this as well. Ironically, some lady named Loretta Scott back in 1927 was the first person given credit to this recipe in a magazine.

    Tips for Making an Ice Cream Cake

    When it comes to making this S’mores Ice Cream Cake or an Ice Cream Cake in general, there are some tips to know. 

    1. Leave plenty of time to make it
      An ice cream cake can’t be made in an hour. You need several hours to make it. I know my recipe states that it needs to freeze for 4 hours, before you can enjoy it. So, before you get any crazy ideas about making an ice cream cake last minute, know that it is going to take some time. It’s okay to get the idea the night before, but an hour before an event might be a huge stretch. 
    2. Make room in the freezer beforehand
      You’ll want to make room in the freezer before you start this recipe. I promise that this tip will save your sanity. Most people don’t think about making room in the freezer beforehand, but it does make the most sense when it comes to making an ice cream cake. 
    3. Practice layering
      With any good ice cream cake, it’s important to get used to layering. When you get good at layering a cake, you can make anything.
