3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

Easy Oreo Ice Cream Cake


This cake was made for a very special birthday girl last month. My fiance's daughter and for all intents and purposes now mine as well, loves all things chocolate. When I asked her what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday, she said an Oreo ice cream cake. I was happy to make one (for the first time), and it turned out very well. It's really a lot easier to make than it looks, and it's the perfect cake for a summer party.

For the Cookie Crust
  • One 19.1 oz. Oreo (or other brand chocolate sandwich cookie) Family Size Package
  • 2 tbs milk (or lactose free option like Lactaid or almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter (can use lactose-free butter or butter-flavored shortening to make it dairy-free)

Essential Tool: Use an 8-9 inch spring form pan.

*For the crust, you really need to use a food processor or blender to get the right consistency with the Oreo crumbs. It needs to be free of any large chunks so that the crust will hold together well.

*Once they are finely ground, stir in the melted butter and milk until thoroughly combined and firmly press the mixture into the spring form pan.

* Place in freezer to set for at least an hour.

For the Filling
  • 1.75 quart container of cookies and cream ice cream (To make it dairy-free, use one 1.75 quart of Breyer's Lactaid vanilla bean ice cream, mixed with 10-15 roughly chopped oreos.)

For the Garnish
  • Oreos for the top (I used 15 cookies)
  • One small container of whipped cream or vanilla frosting 

*Set the ice cream out on the counter to soften for about 20 minutes then scoop it into the springform pan and smooth out until you get a flat, even surface.

*If making it dairy-free, place the softened ice cream into a large bowl and stir in the cookie crumbs before scooping the filling into the pan.

*Place it back in the freezer to chill overnight.

Full Ingredient List
  • One 19.1 oz. Oreo (or other brand chocolate sandwich cookie) Family Size Package plus 15-20 additional cookies for the top and garnish
  • 2 tbs milk (or lactose free option like Lactaid or almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter (can use lactose-free butter or butter-flavored shortening to make it dairy-free)
  • 1.75 quart container of cookies and cream ice cream (To make it dairy-free, use one 1.75 quart of Breyer's Lactaid vanilla bean ice cream, mixed with 10-15 roughly chopped oreos.)
  • One small container of whipped cream or vanilla frosting


Optional Garnish: Shortly before serving, use a piping bag with a star tip to make little swirls around the top outside edge of the cake using either whipped cream or white frosting, leaving a space for an Oreo in between each swirl. Then do one more circle of swirls closer to the center of the cake, this time with each swirl toughing. And top off the middle with one last swirl and Oreo and top cake with Oreo crumbs. *See pics. Make sure you have at least 15 more minutes between decorating and serving time to pop it back in the freezer to chill one last time before you remove the outer ring of the pan.

If you don't have time to chill overnight, or if you don't have a spring form pan, try my Oreo Ice Cream Cake in a Jar. Enjoy!:)
