I have lots of graduation parties, birthday celebrations, and get-togethers coming up, so I’m hoping to get crafty and bake my own ice cream cake creation. If you want to impress your next party’s hosts/guests, forget whatever else you were planning on bringing and bring ice cream cake instead. Because everybody loves ice cream cake.

Check out these delicious ice cream cake recipes I’m dying to make, and try your hand out at homemade ice cream cake with me!

Strawberry and Cream Ice Cream Cake: Katerina from Diethood writes one of my new favorite food blogs. She contributed this recipe to A Night Owl, another wonderful blog written by Kimberly (who’s the kind of girl that likes to get crafty in the middle of the night and therefore, a girl after my own heart!)

Double Chocolate & Banana Ice Cream Cake: Rosie’s blog, Sweetapolita, will literally make you drool; her recipes are creative and incredibly delicious, her photography makes all of her sweet treats even more irresistible and (oh , yes) her little girls and taste-tasters are also to-die-for adorable. Check out this easy chocolate ganache-covered ice cream cake that incorporates bananas into the ice cream mix for a healthy addition to a sweet fix.

Vanilla Malted Ice Cream Cake: I love, love, love malted flavors but they seem to be so hard to find (outside of malted Easter eggs and the occasional milk shake). Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom, a blog filled with out-of-this-world recipes, adapted this angel food, malt, and whipped vanilla cake recipe from a magazine and shows you how to make it your own. I love that the flavors of this cake and simple, yet sophisticated, and perfect for summer.

Hot Fudge Sundae Ice Cream Cake: What’s better than one creative girl’s blog? Six sisters’ collaborative, creative blog! Six Sisters’ Stuff is an amazing blog written by six gorgeous and super-talented sisters. They have a wonderful and very comprehensive recipes index; here is one yummy, fudge sundae ice cream cake from their archive of deliciousness.

┬áMint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake: I seriously, seriously cannot wait to try this recipe. Kylie from The Baking Bird created this incredible mint ice cream/devil’s food cake after Baskin-Robbins’ mint chip ice cream cake. She used fresh brewed coffee in the devil’s food cake batter, which just sounds amazing to me!
