Love ice cream - who hid summer?

It is no secret that I am in love with Lakeland and enjoy nothing more* of an evening than poring over the latest catalogue (*this may not be strictly true but nonetheless my ooh-ing and aah-ing as I browse has led my husband to dub their offerings as kitchen porn of the highest order)

My current must-have wish list stands at 79 items and would necessitate a large bank loan and a kitchen extension (have you seen the mini ice cream sandwich makers??? How have I coped without a pineapple slicer and wedger? Are the flowerpot cake cases not a work of genius?)

So I jumped at the chance to have a go with the Lakeland Ice Cream Maker. Despite my lengthy and fruitless quest for peanut butter ice cream this side of the Atlantic, I had never been tempted to try an ice cream maker before because they generally seem to be very big and very expensive. But this is neat and easy to store - and at under £40 won't break the bank - so it was definitely worth a go.

The verdict? Very easy to use. Very quick. Fun to do with small child. Delicious results.

Now if the sun could just make even the briefest of appearances I will have the perfect excuse to carry on churning.
