Carvel Brings Back Seasonal Favorites with Return of Witch Cake and Tom the Turkey
Celebrate Fall with Festive, Freshly Made Ice Cream Treats and Cakes from Carvel
ATLANTA – (Oct. 6, 2015) – Carvel…America’s Freshest Ice Cream®, is inviting guests to make trick-or- treating a little sweeter this year with the return of the Carvel® Witch Cake and other freshly made novelties for All Hallows’ Eve celebrations. The fall holiday lineup also includes Carvel’s classic Tom the Turkey® cake available this fall.
Available now through Oct. 31 at participating Carvel shoppes, guests can spook their friends and family with Halloween-themed ice cream cakes and treats, such as the Carvel Witch Cake. Featuring a ghastly green face made from whipped frosting and decadent fudge hair, the Witch Cake is made from two layers of freshly made ice cream separated by a layer of chocolate crunchies. Decorated as a ghost, guests can also enjoy the Ice Screamer novelties, a popular take-home treat perfect for all ghastly Halloween activities. All cakes can be made with Carvel’s pumpkin soft ice cream, which is the featured flavor through Nov. 29.
“Carvel offers the perfect addition to any celebration, whether it’s a fantastically frightening Witch Cake or festive Lil’ Gobbler novelty,” said Carvel President Scott Cowell. “We love to continually bring our guests new ways to enjoy Carvel all year round.”
Following the Halloween items, Carvel will bring back the Tom the Turkey® Cake and Lil’ Gobbler novelty treats to celebrate Thanksgiving. Tom the Turkey® features freshly made ice cream with chocolate crunchies covered with chocolate mousse, decorated to look like a playful turkey with red, yellow and orange whipped frosting. The Lil’ Gobbler take-home treats are made of premium vanilla ice cream coated in a chocolate shell and topped off with a whipped frosting design to look like adorable miniature turkeys.
