As promised (one day late)… an ice cream cake how-to. I got the idea from Chris @ Just Beachy. She made a fabulous ice cream cake for her daughter. I’m not the cake expert that she is but I followed her directions and I feel like it turned out pretty well. Lacey liked it which was the goal. I thought it was yummy!
I used a springform pan. Mine was 9 inches which made a pretty large cake. I think next time I might use a 7 inch pan.
Line the pan in plastic wrap. Add your first flavor of ice cream. I used vanilla first. I used a pint b/c they were way on sale. I let it soften for 20 minutes and then pressed it into the pan with my ice cream scoop.
I colored a small amount of purple and blue icing for the piping bags. Not exactly professional looking but not bad for an amateur. I don’t have much experience piping icing so I was learning on the fly. You have to do it quickly b/c you don’t want it to melt.
Basically you can use as much ice cream as you want and choose as many flavors as you want. I did mine based on what was on sale at the store over a 2 week period. FYI – Every time I added an ice cream layer to the cake I stuck it in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
Mission accomplished – ice cream cake with sprinkles and a monkey as requested.
