The History Of National Ice Cream Cake Day

When we research a food holiday, most of the time it’s the origin of the holiday that’s the mystery, and the origin of the food is well known. However, that’s not the case with this holiday. We know that it was invented by Cupcakes For A Cause and the Jurado Family.
What we don’t know is who invented the ice cream cake—at least not with any degree of certainty. We do know that there were Victorian Era desserts known as “Bombes,” which were made of ice cream and fruit. Some of these desserts included cake or biscuits as well. However, many of these early “ice cream cakes” were unlike the modern ice cream cakes we know and love today.
