On another note, today is my Uncle and Dad’s birthday. They are twins! We used to celebrate every year on the 4th. Plenty of fireworks and food, guess that’s why I enjoy that day so much. It means family, food and fun! What are you doing this year? Are you cooking up a feast or anything patriotic? If so, please do post in the comments your link or story; I’d love to hear about it.

Berry Patriotic Ice Cream Cake

Total Time: 24 hours

Serving Size: 6 to 8


1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream (Bluebell is what I used)
1 package of fresh blueberries
1/2 package of fresh strawberries; tops removed and sliced in half
1 package of Oreo cookies; crushed for bottom


Line a cake pan or bread pan with plastic wrap. Set ice cream out briefly to soften. Once the ice cream is slightly soft layer in fruit and ice cream in layers. This will help disburse the fruit through out the cake.

Crush Oreo's in a bowl or plastic bag. Layer over top of ice cream and fruit mixture. The top of this will be come the bottom once the ice cream has set to the mold. Freeze ice cream for several hours or up to two days prior to serving. The longer is of course better!

Serve with fresh fruit on the side and/or caramel or hot fudge topping.
