Ice Cream Cakes...
I bought an ice cream cake for my daughter for Valentines Day. I have yet to try it - but its lovely.
I just thought I'd share - because I get weird cravings for ice cream cake occasionally!
I'll tell you tomorrow how it tastes!
The lady's name is Antoinette and her number is 690-2482.
I like the fact that you have to know someone who knows someone who knows someone for this sort of thing, rather than just buying whatever generic cake you run across at the local big box grocery store.
Along the same lines... I just made chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine's Day. How difficult is it to buy or grow your own strawberries on STX? I can get them year-round at good prices here in Phoenix, and I make lots of different things with them. I'd happily give them up for a life on STX, but if I could have both... so much the better!
My ice cream cake rocked. It tasted really good!
Hmmm, I have not had Ice Cream cake in like forever. I think I was 15 last time. I do not like sweets, though 🙂
Isn't an ice cream cake just ice cream shaped like a cake? Why would it be any better (or different) than just ice cream?
I think icecream cake has ice cream inside of cake - making it a mix between having cake and ice cream. I got a Carvel ice cream cake once, it was pretty yummy. I don't think i could handle an ice cream cake here...i haven't liked melty ice cream since i was a little kid.
nforbes is correct - its ice cream and cake, and its wonderful. I'm sorry cody - that you don't enjoy the sweeter things in life!! ha.
My cake was delivered to my office in town- we put it right in the deep freeze. Later when I knew the traffic would be light, I wrapped it in a towel and drove home (with the ac on max) and put it right back in the freezer. It was perfect the next day and not melty at all.
It is both, it can be inside a "regular" type cake but it can also be entirely out of ice cream. Usually it is entirely out of ice cream with some kind of cookie crust, sometime a frosting over it and usually several types of icecream and fillers.
Its very easy to make them, I wouldn't bother paying, just go to a recipe site.
I tried to make one several times, but its too hot. It just got all melty - I may just be super slow at putting it together. Maybe I should have made it in a big freezer? This one was prettier than I could've done, and it was only fifteen dollars. Thats less than the ingredients on this island.
$15 not bad at all for someone selling them on their own. If its not something you enjoy doing thats a good price. I love to cook, and baking came to me late, I wish i was better at cake decorating, but I guess I'll have to wait for that til we move back stateside and I can take a class or two.
I've only made the all ice cream ones and you need it a little "melty" to form it and put in the layers, so it definitely is messy, if you can make it in the evening it will probably help and if you stick you pans, utensils and stuff that you're using in the freezer so they're not hot or room temp, it helps a little. Its like making a meatloaf, you're going to get dirty if you mix it by hand, but you rinse off and your done. Just have everything ready and know the directions so you don't have to keep stopping to read them. 🙂 Best of luck if you feel like trying again.
If you're making it with cake I would definitely wait for the cake to get cold.
I would like to protest this thread, i have been CRAVING a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake, with that layer of crunchy chocolatey stuff since I first read it!
You have convinced me, I will try it again this weekend. I really didn't need much convincing at all - I love ice cream and cake, and I have a two year old - So a little mess doesn't really bother me. 🙂
Any other tips will be greatly appreciated!
Amber: I do enjoy the finer things in life, believe me, lol
I have not seen a Baskin Robins forever. When I was a kid we used to go to Carvel for ice cream cakes. My friends mother owned a Carvel, that was the one reason we were friends with him 🙂
There used to be a Baskin-Robbins in Lockhart Gardens.
Which island does this woman live on?
Saint Thomas, I assume. I saw her ad at Bad Ass and she delivered to my office in town (charlotte amalie).
rumrunners has ice cream pies
Does anyone on STX have good soft serve icecream??? And cheap (hahahaha....cheap anything on STX).
I want DQ.....Cold Stone.........TCBY
islandtyme...I'm so upset with you. I had managed to forget all about Cold Stone Cremery...now thanks to you I'm daydreaming about cake batter ice cream with graham cracker chunks! Thanks!
White Choc Chip......turtle - YUM!
You are killing me!
Sorry Divinggirl.............but that stuff just rocks! Watch em add the goodies on a marble slab..........slap in in a waffle bowl!!!
Nothing like drowning your sorrows in Cold Stone........:@)
We have Marble Slab creamery in Texas and I do miss it dearly as well. I am going out for ice cream today, thanks guys!
I like marble slab a little better, the ice cream takes better, but cold stone has more creative sundaes. Give me some blue bell anyday! 🙂
Now you've done it. I want blue bell!
