Pastry pro Justin Chapple proves there’s a super fast way to perfectly line a cake pan with his latest Mad Genius Tip. With summer in full swing, the best way to serve that moist, fluffy cake is with a cold scoop of ice cream. Here, the six best ice cream and cake pairings for those hot summer days:
1. Brownie Cake Sundaes with Pecan-Ice Cream Balls
Instead of making his brownies in one big pan, Atlanta chef Ford Fry bakes them in muffin cups, so each one has the perfect ratio of crusty outside to moist, fudgy interior.
2. Bourbon-Nectarine Ice Cream Sundaes with Pound-Cake Croutons
This is an excellent grown-up version of an ice cream sundae, made with lush nectarines cooked in bourbon. The best part: the crisp, buttery pound-cake croutons.
