We love this delicious ice cream cake that Asda customer Misty created using some tasty treats from her local store!


Misty, from Tweedbank in Galashiels, shared this fab pic on Instagram of her first attempt at an ice cream cake and said it was easy peasy to create. She was inspired by a recipe she spotted on a cooking show where they created an ice cream bombe.

The original method was to line a big bowl with clingfilm, add swiss roll and fill it with slightly melted ice cream before putting it back in the freezer. Misty decided to adapt it using a cake tin as she thought it would be better with more cake!

Delivery driver Matt heads to Rio next month and we’re wishing him and the team all the very best.

Matt had a stroke in 2013 when he was an extremely fit 23-year-old, working as a consultant at a gym and playing semi-professional football for Marske United. The stroke affected his speech and mobility, but after six days in hospital and several months of rehab he was back playing football.

We love the way mum Lyndsay personalised these Asda Piñata Surprise cakes – and so did her six-year-old twins Liam and Ellie!

Liam and Ellie with their cakes

Lyndsay always likes to give the twins their own individual cake on their birthday – so she bought two different Piñata Surprise cakes and used rice paper and decorative names to personalise them.

She usually bakes their birthday cakes but this year decided to save time and money by buying cakes from Asda and adding her own finishing touches.
