Ice Cream in December?

Yes, ice cream in December.

As part of my Christmas present to two of my friends, I decided to make an ice cream cake for one, and ice cream cupcakes for the other. It was quite a fun journey just because it's fun to make ice cream cupcakes and cakes under a time limit and in December.

I think about it and on the East Coast they have snowy weather, yet here, in California, I can make ice cream cakes and it's still quite sunny.

So first, the base recipe was this wonderful chocolate cake and idea!

For Kevin, who I made Hummingbird cupcakes for a couple months back, had requested that I make him a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake. So I added some mint chips to the cake and made a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake!


For Jon, who is another best friend of mine, I decided to surprise him. He said that he really liked Black Cherry ice cream, so I decided a Black Forest Ice Cream Cupcake would be the best choice. I used the same recipe, but decided to cut it in half so I wont end up with too many cupcakes. So I decided to have a cupcake bottom, Black Cherry ice cream middle, with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and a maraschino cherry on top!

ps. picture up top isn't mine. =]


  1. Nina these ice cream cupcakes are just the cutest!! how did you keep them cold? didn't they melt before they got to your friend? Gem

  2. actually, I kept them in the freezer. After my "dates" with the respective guys, I had got them to take me home and I gave it to them there. I believe that it was alright for each of them to get it back to their place, since they only live a couple mins away from me.


Thanks for your comments!
