JULY BAKING CHALLENGE
July 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Fresh Berry Cream Cake
This towering beauty features layers of fresh whipped cream and plenty of delicious berries! This is another Sally’s Baking Challenge recipe where you can let your creativity shine. Use your favorite layer cake recipe (even a 6 inch cake for a smaller version!) and decorate it with fresh whipped cream, berries, and any other garnishes you desire. We’re channeling the March 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge when we made Naked Cake, only this version uses whipped cream and is totally bare on the sides. Perfect for summertime.

Let’s Review the June Baking Challenge
June 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches
I challenged you to make homemade ice cream sandwiches this past month and you certainly showed up! I loved the excitement and was so thrilled to see many of you step outside of your comfort zones. The general feedback was that these were MUCH easier than anticipated and isn’t that what these challenges are all about? Testing your limits and realizing you’re completely capable of trying new recipes. Using this recipe, there were mint ice cream sandwiches, caramel, neapolitan, sea salted, black cherry chocolate, cookie dough, strawberry, sprinkle loaded… and MANY happy children. 🙂 What a fun challenge as we kick off summertime. I hope you make these many more times in the future, too!
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Sarah:
“Ice cream sandwiched between 2 perfect brownies. Can it get better?! These are easy to make and taste absolutely amazing. My whole family absolutely loved them. My brother said “this is how all ice cream sandwiches should be!” Will be making again!”
For the first time ever, an alternative challenge recipe was randomly chosen from the giant list of entries! But since the main challenge recipe was our brownie ice cream sandwiches, let’s have TWO winners this month. 🙂
