Anyone else a fan of a big ass ice cream cake, loaded with goodness and dripping with chocolate sauce? Yeah, I thought so. I decided to tackle a bananaberry ice cream cake, because hello… nana ice cream is great and all, but imagine it in CAKE form?! It looks intimidating, but I assure you… a 2-year old could make this. The recipe is fool-proof and requires minimal time and effort.
