  7. there’s only one or two I wouldn’t taste test, and there are four or five that have me in a quandary. Well done! (And we ain’t talkin’ beef.)

    I’ve never been a big ice cream fan but you have now converted me. Black Forest cake has always been one of my favorite cakes and to have this in an ice cream cake is beyond belief! I don’t know about you but I’m SCREAMING FOR ICE CREAM (CAKE)

  9. I want to try them all! Thank you for the opportunity to create a recipe for this it was a competition for myself as well as I really tried to think outside the box and not go with one of my fav combos or something I normally would. Good luck to all the entries as well as you and the team that have the task of trying them (that must be rough) and picking a winner (even rougher)!

  10. My head says that I’ll get a serious stomach ache if I eat one slice, bite of each, but that’s what my heart is telling me to do. Gorgeous round-up. Can’t pick my favorite, they’re all too fabulous-looking.

  11. Wow, the competition is stiff! Everyone’s recipe looks so amazing! I’m drooling! Thanks again, Alisa, for this super fun opportunity!

    • Seriously! I’d say your recipe was one of the best I’d seen, but this is a pretty darn amazing and competitive line up! Thanks so much for joining in Jenn. I think this is the best recipe contest ever – yum!
