I’m honored to be partnering with Mayfield Creamery this summer, bringing you fun and exciting recipes that will help celebrate everyday moments in your family! #MayfieldMoment All opinions contained in this post are my own. Please see below for additional disclosures.

Today is Liam’s last day of 4 year old kindergarten and we’re excited for summer! You see, this is an exciting month for our Liam. He is not only stoked about summer and moving onto 5 year old kindergarten, but he’s turning 5 at the end of the month! We’ve got a lot to celebrate around here.

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the beginning of another wonderful summer than with a beach inspired ice cream treat! Mayfield Creamery has a delicious birthday cake ice cream that works beautifully in combining the look of sand and water (and, hey…the sprinkles can be the little fish and seashells!). To top it off, Mayfield ice cream also uses fresh cream from their own dairy with no artificial growth hormones. My kind of ice cream!


You only need a few ingredients to make this frozen treat a reality! It’s quite easy to make ahead of time, too.

Sandy Beach Ice Cream Treat


  • Mayfield Creamery Birthday Cake ice cream
  • SAND – vanilla cookies (you could use Vanilla Wafers, golden Oreos, Graham Crackers, Teddy Grahams, etc.)
  • BEACH TOWEL – Fruit leather (you could use fruit leather, fruit roll ups, sour rainbow belts, etc.)
  • INNER TUBE – round gummy candy (you could use gummy life savors, sour gummy rings, etc.)

For those of you not in the South and Southwest, Mayfield Creamery is an ice cream company who has become a beloved family tradition having been around since 1923. Since I was born and raised here in South Carolina, I’ve always known and loved Mayfield’s ice cream. For those of you here in the South Carolina, you can find Mayfield ice cream at Publix, Bi-Lo and Kroger. Woot!


Here’s the Mayfield Creamery Store Locator to see precisely where you can find their ice cream, pronto!
