Ice Cream Cake

My first attempt at an ice cream cake.

This was quite an adventure. Funny story is that I actually did this to myself. My friend calls me up on Tuesday saying that she's so worried that she wouldn't be able to get the ice cream cake she wanted for her boyfriend. She had forgotten that the Carvel that was there had turned into a Yogurtland. She had called me wondering if Ben and Jerry's made ice cream cakes...which it probably does, but I told her that I could do it for her...even though I have two midterms next week.


First, I had to look up how to make ice cream cakes. Some suggested that I use a springform - oops no springform pans. This instead means that I create things MY way. I had first put the ice cream into a 8in cake pan and froze it with chocolate chips in it.


Then I baked the cake and cupcakes and decorated the cupcakes while I had time. I then put the cake and ice cream together. That was the hardest part I think. The ice cream melted quite quickly so I ended up with (almost) a soggy mess. I stuck it back into the freezer for more time. I had decided to frost it at night with the door open. This had cooled down the room significantly and the ice cream did not melt while I was frosting.


Sorry for the poor frosting job. 1:30am. after like 4 hours of studying. SO TIRED. Also a BIG sorry about the picture quality. I couldnt keep the cake out for very long so I didn't get very good pictures of the cake. In addition, I baked these at night so not a good idea to take pictures then. Last of all, I couldnt take the picture of the inside of the cake myself since I was not at the party where they cut it open since I was studying - boring I know.

More pictures will be added once I get the pick as it was being cut!



  1. What an amazing first attempt at an ice cream cake.

  2. Hey Nina, did you freeze the cake before putting the cake and ice cream together? That helps.


Thanks for your comments!
