Epic Ice Cream Cake

Good Things Utah

Get your sweet tooth ready, a dessert food truck that will bring you all kinds of epic sweets! Andi & Kirstie of Sweet Violet Food Truck came by to show us how to make their Epic Ice Cream Cake!

Andi and Kirstie started the Sweet Violet food truck in 2020 due to job loss during COVID, saying they have always wanted a restaurant and love sugary treats, so the idea of a dessert food truck seemed like the perfect way to go!

Both Andi and Kirstie decided to share an Epic Ice Cream Cake because it’s a combo of some of our other menu items, including ice cream, donuts, and our Sugar Shakes. The team loves experimenting with flavors, colors, and trends, and their current menu items in the truck include ice cream, specialty drinks such as mermaid lemonade, and their crazy Sugar Shakes topped with donuts, cake, candy, and much more!
