This Strawberry Champagne Ice Cream Cake is a perfect dessert for any occasion. Red Velvet cake, Champagne and Sweet Cream Ice Cream make up this decadent dessert.One that can be easily re-created at home with your choice of toppings.

I was very excited when this opportunity came my way to work with The Curious Creamery and create an ice cream cake recipe for them.  What is The Curious Creamery you ask? It's a powdered form ice cream cake mix you can fully customize and in 3 easy steps you will have ice cream without an ice cream machine! What's better than a product which has the added benefit of helping reduce their carbon footprint by 90%! All you need is milk, heavy cream, sugar and any mix-ins you would like. 

They make two of my favorite flavors, Sweet Cream and German Chocolate and each box makes up to a gallon of Ice Cream Cake. I was very curious about this new product, especially when the box states "no ice cream machine needed!" I headed to my local Walmart and found the Sweet Cream Ice Cream Cake Mix in the Celebration aisle. Picked up fresh fruit and chocolate to garnish the top of my cake. Now I was ready to get started. 

I used a red velvet store bought cake mix. Prepared the cake according to instructions, but instead of using water I used champagne. I baked the cake in my 8" spring pan, let it cool and removed from pan. I then prepared the Sweet Cream Ice Cream Cake Mix per the instructions, poured half of the ice cream cake mix into the pan I used to bake my cake, inserted the cake, then added the additional half of the ice cream cake mix on top. Covered the pan with parchment paper and placed in the freezer for 6 hours. 

Once the cake was fully frozen, I placed it on a pretty cake pedestal added my toppings and the cake was ready to serve. 

I garnished the cake with fresh strawberries, raspberries, sprigs of Thyme, chocolate shavings and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
