Gluten Free Nut Free Ice Cream Cake Recipe


Here’s a gluten free and nut free ice cream cake recipe.  Last weekend we celebrated our daughters 14th birthday and she had a party with a few of her closest friends but two of her friends had food allergies, one girl is gluten free & another girl is nut free.  So after trying to come up with many alternatives I decided that at an ice cream cake was a good solution.
