We’re smack-dab in the middle of Ice Cream Week here at The Kitchn, and what better way to celebrate than with an incredibly beautiful ice cream cake? But not just any ice cream cake, mind you — a black forest ice cream cake, complete with cherry labneh ice cream and chocolate buttermilk cake. Swoon.

The combination of the creamy cherry-labneh ice cream and the decadent buttermilk-chocolate cake results in a delicious twist on Black Forest cake — perfect for summer birthdays, or just because.

This cake is definitely a labor of love, but luckily you can make both the ice cream and the cake in advance. Garnishing with fresh cherries, dark chocolate shavings, and sugar cones is optional, although strongly encouraged.
