Eat Ice Cream with Us This Friday!

Chocolate Cake and Ice Cream
You’ve been waiting all year for it…

National Ice Cream Day is finally here.

Settle down. We know. We can hardly contain ourselves, too.

July is National Ice Cream Month and Sunday, July 15 is an entire day dedicated to celebrating ice cream. You know we’re going to be celebrating our frozen little hearts out on Sunday, but we’re also going to kick off the Ice Cream Day festivities a couple of days early here on TasteSpotting.

On Friday, July 13, TasteSpotting is partnering with Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream to feature your gorgeous ice cream cakes, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream sundaes, banana splits, floats, milkshakes, you-name-it-with-ice-cream-in-it all day.

Friends, this party, as always, is a potluck, so between now and Friday morning, make a gorgeous Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream dessert (** see note below), take an awesome photo, post on your blog, and submit to TasteSpotting! Make sure to tag it “Ice Cream Day” so we know. We’re going to publish them all out on Friday, July 13. (All the usual submissions guidelines apply, of course: awesome photo, fresh original content, etc.)

If you don’t have a blog, you can still have your recipe posted on TasteSpotting. Email us (sarah at tastespotting dot com) with your awesome photo, recipe, and a little paragraph, we’ll post it up right here on the TasteSpotting blog and submit it to the main site. You’re going to be almost famous.

Questions about Friday? Post them in the comments and we’ll answer right away.

About Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream

Before we head back to the kitchen with a carton of the Dreyer’s Slow Churned Limited Edition Coconut Pineapple (!!!), here are a few things you should know about Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream…

First of all, you can eat three times as much of the Slow Churned Light ice creams because it has half the fat and one-third the calories of the regular Dreyer’s/Edy’s ice creams. We’re not saying you should eat three times more ice cream, but, well, maybe we are.

Second-, and more importantly, Dreyer’s/Edy’s Ice Cream is spending the summer “giving away smiles.” Each time a fan uploads a photo of an ice cream smile to their facebook page, Dreyer’s/Edy’s will donate $5 to Operation Smile, a children’s charity dedicated to delivering reconstructive facial surgeries to (physically) bring smiles! Since you’re making and taking photos of your ice cream desserts, snap a quick one of your smile, too, and share!
** note ** Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream is sponsoring this Friday’s feature, but if you have trouble finding Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream in your local market, don’t sweat it. Bring your dessert. We’re still going to post it.

Where can we find the recipe for the cake in the above post? It looks absolutely decadent and belongs with the ice cream :)

That makes 4 of us to want the recipe! Please! Would make a nice one to try this weekend as I’m home alone (my husband is going to London for the Olympics) so I have lots of time to spend AND I need a treat!

all: we didn’t bake that particular chocolate birthday cake in the TasteSpotting kitchen, but we *have* made this, which is pretty much level 10 awesome:
