Ice Cream Cake
Two weeks ago we went to wedding and the girls were so excited to have some wedding cake. We waited and waited and finally left before they cut the cake (we learned later they cut it about 9pm and we left at 6:30pm). They girls were a little disappointed so DH husband told they he would get them an ice cream cake. We picked one up from Baskin Robbins and it was great but a little pricey. I thought "I bet I could make that" and I did. Yesterday I lined my round cake pan with plastic wrap and filled it with vanilla ice cream, covered it with more plastic wrap and put it in the freezer overnight. Today I removed the plastic wrapped ice cream from the cake pan and put it in the freezer again. Then using two cake pans (the same one used for the ice cream) I baked a two chocolate cake layers and let them cool for a few hours. I then whipped some more vanilla ice cream in the mixer while I placed the pre-made ice cream layer between the two cake layer. I frosted the cake with the whipped ice cream very fast, covered it with more plastic wrap and froze again. We had some after dinner and it was wonderful. I can't wait to make it again. The girls want one with strawberry ice cream and I want one with mint chip!
