When cooking for your friends or family, you will aim to create a taste that will captivate their senses. Of course, you will use recipes touted as the best to put together a hearty and delicious meal.   There is one element that will have a significant impact on your meal: the dessert. Even the most exceptional flavor of a meal can all be negated by the wrong dessert.

Cakes and ice cream are the leading choices for dessert. You can now get several custom cake design options online, along with some exceptional ice cream flavors to fit your menu. Rather than have two servings for ice cream and cake, you can have them in one combined dessert. Most dessert recipes might fool you into thinking that an ice-cream-cake combination is something you can whip up with minimal expertise. Your best choice for exceptional taste is to hire a professional to deliver this dessert.

Here are some of the creative combinations you can choose for your meals.

Strawberry Cake with Pistachio Ice Cream

Pistachios are common ingredients in desserts. While the strawberry cake-pistachio combination might initially seem odd, it has a somewhat natural sweetness. The strawberries in your cake and the pistachios will perfectly balance each other and generate a nutty and sweet combination. You can alternatively opt for a chocolate-dipped strawberry cake if you are looking for a classic dessert flavor.

Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Ice Cream

Gingerbread cake is the quintessential dessert for Christmas and thanksgiving. It can, however, form the perfect dessert for summer when paired with lemon ice cream. The tangy lemon ice cream taste will add some spicy flavor to the fluffy gingerbread cake. This creates a frosty treat that will be perfect for the summer heat.

Vanilla Cake with Peach Ice Cream

This is a must-try before the end of summer. It is a classic southern dessert that has been part of the family meals for ages. The peaches in the ice cream will be a comforting flavor to the creamy flavors of a moist vanilla cake.

Carrot Cake with Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Most people will opt to simply place the pecans on the cream cheese frosting of their carrot cakes. You can take this combination to a new level by having the butter pecan ice cream baked into your carrot cake. The carrot cake is generally delicate and moist, and the ice cream melt in it will fuse its sweet flavors.

Chocolate Cake with Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

This is the perfect choice for chocoholics. The sweet and cool flavors in mint ice cream will pair exceptionally well with the rich flavors in chocolate. This is the ideal choice for those looking for the ultimate frosty treat.

The above combinations are the best options for your meal’s dessert. To ensure that they have been prepared to perfection and will deliver their touted flavors, it is essential to get them from an experienced baker. You can also get other flavor combination suggestions from your baker to create a perfect crowning to your meal.
