Summer is not over yet, despite all the social media constantly feeding me with images and videos about Summer being over! Can I please indulge for a little longer !? It’s Summer and ice cream is still in season. Here is a really fun no bake I guess I can call it a cake, what else would you call it?
A comment on you tube said it’s not a cake…hm, so I’m not sure what it is. Yes there is no cake but I’m not going to stress about it, is that really that important? No, I didn’t think so. So here is Rice Krispie Ice Cream Cone Cake.

Strawberry Swiss Buttercream
add 1 cup good quality seedless strawberry jam, or thick strawberry puree, you add few drops of pink food coloring to get a desired color shade.To support the “gravity defying” design I used a simple cake board dowel support system.
