Taking time to celebrate life’s little moments is part of what makes life so great. After all, why should you wait for a birthday or an anniversary or a retirement to throw a party and have some cake when you can throw a (smaller) party and have a (smaller) cake to celebrate whatever you’d like!

That’s the thinking behind Turkey Hill’s new six-inch round ice cream cakes. When we launched our ice cream cake line last year, we started it with an eight-inch round cake (serves 12 to 14) and a quarter sheet cake (serves 16 to 20). The new, smaller cake serves four to six people (or two people multiple times!) and can be found at Turkey Hill Minit Markets everywhere.

Speaking of small celebrations, leave a comment below with a few of your own personal little reasons to celebrate. We’ll choose three or four of our favorites to receive some free Turkey Hill ice cream. Now that’s something worth celebrating!

Everyone loves games, right? Especially when you can win free ice cream (or, in this case, a free ice cream cake). To help spread the word about Turkey Hill’s new ice cream cakes, we’ve created a new game on our website involving an ice cream cake (of course) and 75 candles.

The object is simple: Blow out all 75 candles before they melt. But even if you don’t extinguish the flames in time, after each game you can enter to win a free 8-inch Turkey Hill ice cream cake. We’ll give away one cake every week to one person chosen at random, so feel free to play as often as you’d like.

Also, our ice cream cakes are available in several new locations, including Giant Food Stores, Waldbaums, A&P, Superfresh, and Pathmark, with Acme stores soon to be added. We’ll also be adding an ice cream cake locator to our store locator soon!

As reported previously on the Ice Cream Journal, Turkey Hill is sampling our wares – including Duetto and our new ice cream cakes – at the Pennsylvania Farm Show (January 10-17). Yesterday, the Turkey Hill Team helped celebrate the 93rd birthday of the Farm Show by presenting an oversized ice cream cake to Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Dennis Wolff.

Thankfully, we were able to find a cake artist who could replicate the Turkey Hill logo on the cake. It looked so nice, we almost didn’t want to cut it up, but we did, and everyone loved it! The Farm Show will be open for another three days, so feel free to visit and stop by the Turkey Hill booth!

Like Romeo and Juliet or peanut butter and jelly, cake and ice cream are meant to be together, which is why ice cream cakes are pretty much the perfect party food. That’s also why, after several years of considering the idea, Turkey Hill has developed its very own ice cream cakes!

The new ice cream cakes are made with swirled chocolate and vanilla ice cream, loaded with chocolate cake crunchies and topped with a special ice cream icing. They’re available in an 8-inch round size ($18 and serves 12 to 14) and a quarter sheet cake ($28 and serves 16 to 20). The cakes also come with a customizable top, to allow you to create your own personal message.

Right now, the treats are only available in select Turkey Hill Minit Markets in the Lancaster and York, PA area and at all Shoprite locations, but we’ll be expanding distribution into grocery stores wherever our ice cream is sold later in 2009. Check this page for specific information about where you can find them.

In the meantime, go ahead and start thinking about things to celebrate and reasons to buy an ice cream cake. How ‘bout celebrating the arrival of ice cream cakes? Seems like a good enough reason for a party to us!

TODAY’S PRIZE: While you’re enjoying a slice of ice cream cake, you can play today’s prize: Ice Cream-opoly! Game pieces include a sundae, a banana split, a scoop and, of course, a cow. One commenter chosen at random from this entry will win this sweet game. Don’t forget to pass “SCOOP” and collect your $200.

Election day is only four days away, and no matter which candidate you support, an election night party is always a great way to bring together friends and family. That’s why we invented this Election Night Party Ice Cream Cake recipe. Half of it is blue (for the Democrats at your party) and half of it is red (for Republican invitees). Once served, guests can cast their “vote” by eating either a red piece or a blue piece. May the best half win!

Since no actual pictures of this cake exist, below is a crude drawing of the cake. Please pardon our artistic skills.INGREDIENTS

• 1 box of Vanilla cake mix (additional ingredients may be required based on cake mix instructions)
• 1 1.5 quart container of Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
• 1 bottle of blue food coloring
• 1 bottle of red food coloring
• 1 container of white cake frosting
• Appropriate patriotic cake decorations (stars, etc.)


Prepare vanilla cake mix according to directions on box in cake pan of appropriate size. After cake has finished baking, remove from oven and place in the refrigerator to cool for approximately one hour.

While cake is cooling, separate Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean ice cream into equal portions in two separate bowls. Add a small amount of blue food coloring to one bowl and a small amount of red food coloring to the other. Mix ice cream and food coloring until color is blended throughout. More food coloring may be required to achieve desired blue and red colors.

After cake has cooled, carefully cut the cake horizontally to create two layers. Place the bottom layer on a platter. With ice cream softened (you may need to let the ice cream warm a bit and stir it), spread the blue ice cream on half of the bottom half of the cake and the red ice cream on the other half of the bottom half of the cake. Place the top layer of the cake over the ice cream and place in the freezer for one hour to allow ice cream to harden.

While cake and ice cream is hardening, mix half of the white frosting with some blue food coloring and half with red food coloring to create blue and red frosting.

Once cake and ice cream has hardened, remove from freezer. Spread the blue frosting on the half with the blue ice cream and the red frosting on the half with red ice cream. Adorn edges of cake with stars or other patriotic decorations.

Place in freezer until ready to serve.
