The best Father’s Day Brunch Idea
Serving waffles with a slice of ice cream cake just makes sense! Skip the whipped cream in favor of a flavorful ice cream cake – that you didn’t have to make!
One of our favorite family traditions is having ice cream for breakfast on the kid’s birthdays so this time we decided to do an early Father’s Day with a Cold Stone Ice Cream Cake. YOLO!
The ice cream cake is creamy, thanks to the ice cream layer and they offer tons of cake options to choose from!
How to Serve Ice Cream Cake and Waffles
Call me crazy but frozen Belgian waffles taste pretty darn close to homemade waffles and are such a time saver. They also make the perfect base for a nice big slice of ice cream cake.
Or you can use something like Thick and Fluffy Waffles if you can’t find Belgian.
Just toast them up in the kitchen and then bring them to the table while they are still warm.
You guys, when the ice cream starts to melt on your waffle and the chocolate and the strawberries start to mingle…it’s the best ever! This is a great memory for the kids and dad to share.
The kids told pretty much the entire neighborhood what we had for breakfast but they always remembered to talk about how it was because of Father’s Day.
We reserve these types of breakfasts for extra special occasions.
What to Serve With It
Mixed berries are a great thing to serve with the ice cream cake waffles because they pair really well with the creaminess. It’s a natural breakfast item and is also a great way to have the kids get something fresh on their plate (even though it’s next to cake).
I served their favorite orange juice as well, but I will say, that didn’t pair super great with the chocolate.
Why a Cold Stone Ice Cream Cake
This ice cream cake from Cold Stone, called Tall, Dark & Delicious is the perfect cake for my family.
It’s layers of Devil’s Food cake, sweet cream ice cream with brownies, and chocolate ice cream with Oreos covered in white frosting and cascading chocolate ganache.
Of course, this cake would be perfect for Father’s Day celebrating any time of the day. And Cold Stone makes it super easy to order one with their online ordering system at www.ColdStoneCakes.com!
You can order a small or large Tall, Dark & Handsome from their “Signature Cakes” section and pick it up in the store. Most cakes are ready within 24 hours but if you need it faster you can call the store and see if they can accommodate you.
But, of course, if you don’t have a Cold Stone near you, you can use whatever ice cream cake you can find. Or just use plain ice cream.
We used to get ice cream cakes all the time growing up. With my oldest’s sons allergies, I’ve never gotten one for my kids before.
When I spoke with my Cold Stone shop about their allergy procedure I felt really good about it and was so excited to know that my oldest could eat this cake right along with us.
They use special equipment and seem really knowledgeable and happy to provide that extra attention. It made my mom heart happy.
And who doesn’t love a little chocolate ganache along with their morning coffee?
Set up a fun Ice Cream Cake and Waffles Father’s Day Brunch for the men in your life this year!
