Summer dessert: cherry ice with angel food cake

Not venturing into desserts often, i was surprised by my inspiration to create a fairly interesting dessert for a summer bbq. There were four components:

1. Angel food cake – i just bought this

2. Banana puree – blended bananas with honey

3. Vanilla whipped cream – whipped heavy cream with vanilla bean and confectioners sugar

4. Spiked cherry ice – pureed fresh cherries and blueberries with cherry wine, sugar, mint, lemon juice, lemon zest and vodka. Set the mix in the freezer overnight and had a choppy italian ice consistency in the morning.

Very very yummy!!

    Never would think to mix cherry ice with angel food cake! What a great summer treat. May serve something like this over the weekend or on July 4th. Enjoy your blog, Jamie!
