You can have your cake ice cream and eat it too

A la mode is passe. The latest thing is cake mixed right into your ice cream.

Cold Stone Creamery has birthday cake ice cream, Baskin Robbins has German chocolate cake ice cream and now Blue Bell has Cake and Ice Cream — vanilla ice cream with chocolate-coated cake pieces, chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles.

“At birthday parties it’s very common to pair a scoop of ice cream with a slice of cake,” Charles Weiss, branch manager of the Kansas City, Kansas,

facility, said in a press release. “Our new flavor is making it a little easier for you. The chocolate coated cake pieces are a great combination with the vanilla ice cream.”
