Strawberry Ice Cream Cake

There's just nothing like summer, strawberries, and cake and ice cream!

Prepare a white box cake mix according to package directions
Let cool completely.

Soften a carton of Blue Bell Strawberries and Homemade Vanilla 
for a few minutes on the counter.

Slice up a pound of strawberries

and leave a few whole for garnish.

Slice your cake into four layers and place one inside a spring form pan.

Spread a few scoops of ice cream onto the cake

and layer strawberries around the outside.

Repeat layers three times,

spreading strawberries over the top on the last layer.
Cover and place cake in freezer for 12 -24 hours. 

Remove cake from spring form pan and decorate with whipped cream and whole strawberries.


Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

I am forever trying to make the 
lightest, fluffiest, flakiest 
buttermilk biscuits. :-)

Here are some tips I have gathered over the years -

everything must be cold!
cold bowl, cold fork, cold ingredients, cold biscuit cutter
never use your warm hands

freeze your stick of butter and then grate it into your flour

real buttermilk, no substitutes

cut and stack your dough (this makes layers!)

press and lift to cut the biscuits, don't twist your cutter

bake biscuits touching to help them rise

Any other tips you'd like to share with me?
