We’ve got our patriotic sweet-tooth on, and a cool, creamy dessert is taking center spot on the 4th of July picnic table. This year we’re craving banana splits, so we’ve taken the classic, turned it into an ice cream cake, and dressed it in red, white, and blue. It starts with a basic box mix cake, followed by a layer of vanilla ice cream, and topped with endless amounts of whipped cream. We’ve added red and blue berries in flag design for some down-home American pride. Now that’s a festive dessert with crowd-pleasing appeal!
