As well as recipes I made myself, I also shared some great guest posts from fellow bloggers who made tasty concoctions including Pear & Ginger Ice Cream, Candied Bacon, Toasted Pecan, Maple Syrup, Southern Comfort & Salt Ice Cream, Plum & Earl Grey Frozen Yoghurt, Tarragon, Lemon, Lime & Tequila Ice Cream, Chocolate & Honey Sorbet and Salty Snickers Ice Cream Bars!
This year, I'd like to invite bloggers to join in with the ice cream fun by taking part in a new bloggers' challenge called Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream, hosted here on Kavey Eats.
I hope to make this a monthly challenge, where we can choose a different theme each month. At the end of each month, I'll post a round up with pictures and links back to all the blog entries, so we can all enjoy seeing what everyone else has made.
This challenge is open to bloggers from anywhere in the world and your blogs can be food, family, lifestyle, home… the more the merrier!
How To Take Part
- Read the monthly challenge theme (below).
- Create and blog a recipe that fits the challenge by the 28th of the month.

- Email me with your name and the name of your blog, the link to your post, the title of your post and an image for my roundup, no larger than 500 pixels on the longest side.
You are welcome to submit your post to as many blogger challenge events as you like, such as Dom's Random Recipes, Ren's Family Friendly Fridays, the fabulous We Should Cocoa or any others you fancy. You can even enter this one more than once, if you write two separate blog posts that fit the challenge!

If you tweet about your post using #kaveyeatsicecream or #bloggersscreamforicecream, I'll retweet any I see.
Theme for February 2012 – Custard Based Ice Creams
I want a theme that will work for new comers and old hands alike so I'm kicking things off with this one.
If you're new to making ice cream, making your own custard base from scratch seems a little daunting, but is definitely worth the effort. Adding real vanilla seeds is enough to produce a decadent dessert.
For old hands, you can share the recipe for your killer custard base or add in your own choice of flavourings from fruit and nuts to chocolate, from cake to marzipan, whatever you like!
