Create your own awe inspiring eagles for your July 4th celebrations our of ice cream. These Mini Ice Cream Cone Eagles coated in shredded candy melts are sure to be the hit of your patriotic party.

We'll be celebrating the U.S.A.'s independence in a few days on the 4th of July so I thought the next animal in my decorated ice cream cone series just had to be a bald eagle. These majestic creatures symbolize the freedom we are fortunate to experience in our country. 

In creating my eagles out of ice cream, I wanted to make sure I captured it's beauty, but my first attempt did not go so well.

If you had to choose between a slice of apple pie and a cupcake, which would you choose? 

For me it would depend on my mood. I love them both.

Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Roll for the 4th of July

Keep cool this 4th of July by enjoying a slice or two of this
Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream Roll

Keep cool this 4th of July by enjoying a slice or two of this Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream Roll. You'll get cake, ice cream and sprinkles in each slice. Recipe from HungryHappenings.com

It's all about ice cream around here this summer. When I'm hot, I want ice cream, so I just can't stop making frozen treats. 

Unlike all the decorated ice cream cones I've been making lately, this dessert will require that you turn on the oven. That blue star in the middle of the bright white ice cream is cake. Fortunately the cake you'll need to bake is really thin and bakes up really quickly, so you wont have to heat up your kitchen for too long.

These patriotic puff pastry shells are a festive alternative to the plain buns we usually use when eating pulled pork and the meal is a lot less messy too. My family really enjoyed this unique twist on a BBQ sandwich.

Over the weekend, we gathered together to celebrate Father's Day, and being their host is a food blogger who can't blog about a holiday after the fact, they enjoyed a 4th of July feast a few weeks early.

When my family gathers for special events in the summer, we tend to stay indoors. None of us are fans of sweltering heat and high humidity. We prefer air conditioning. That doesn't mean we want to miss out on the foods of summer, though.

Ice Cream Cone Polar Bears are so cool yet they'll surely warm your heart. 
This post brought to you by Wilton.

Chill out with some adorable Ice Cream Cone Polar Bears made from homemade Toasted Coconut Cheesecake Ice Cream. Find the recipe at HungryHappenings.com

My freezer is packed full of homemade ice cream and adorably decorated ice cream cones. I am having so much fun making different flavors of the no churn ice cream and transforming scoop topped cones into animals that you'll be seeing a lot more of them to come in the next few weeks. 

When I first set out to make these polar bear ice cream cones, I planned to use store bought vanilla ice cream, but have found that making my own homemade ice cream has been so easy that I decided to try a new more exotic flavor instead.

These adorable Pink Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone Pigs
will bring the kid out in everyone. 

Aren't these Pink Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone Pigs just too adorable? They are pretty easy to make too. The recipe and tutorial are at HungryHappenings.com

Were you one of those kids who loved finding bits of bubble gum inside your ice cream?

I have to admit the child in me loves the flavor of bubble gum ice cream but has never enjoyed finding bubble gum balls in every bite of my frozen treat. 

Making my own homemade version was the perfect solution to the overload of bubble gum problem I've encountered in most bubble gum ice cream.

I've been seeing lots of recipes for quick and easy ice cream made with heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk all over the internet this summer and I finally had to give it a try. 

All you have to do to make this ice cream is whip some cream and fold in the sweetened condensed milk and pop it in the freezer. After a few hours you have a deliciously creamy ice cream.

The most amazing part of this recipe is that it does not require an ice cream maker and it takes just a few minutes of effort so you can get back outside to enjoy the summer.
