Potted Plant Ice-Cream Cake

This is the perfect dessert for Mother’s Day, April Fool’s Day, or whenever you want to give someone flowers but also really want something sinfully delicious to eat! It starts with pound cake, topped with the ice cream of your choice. But the real genius is in the “potting soil.” See how to turn cookies into dirt. Follow Chef John’s technique and you’ll be amazed at how real it looks!

To get started, pick your favorite cake recipe. Or, check out other edible arts and crafts!
