Ice-Cream Cakes

The term "ice-cream cake" can either refer to a block of ice-cream shaped to look like a cake, or ice-cream and cake layered with one another to make a single dessert. They are usually served at birthday parties and weddings. The idea for ice-cream cake first stemmed from trifles in the Renaissance period, and written recipes have been found dating back to the 1870s.

Today, ice-cream cakes are very popular in the US, especially as the main dessert for celebrations that fall in the summer months. You'll often be given a piece at "July 4th parties, for example.

A number of famous retailers now offer ice-cream cakes. Friendly's, Cold Stone Creamery, Baskin-Robbin's, Carvels, and Dairy Queen all prepare these cakes for their customers.

  1. Bake the cake mix by following the directions provided on the packet for a 13 inch x 9 inch cake and allow it to cool slightly.
  2. Tip the cake out onto a sheet of tinfoil and leave it to cool completely, setting it aside for now.
  3. Mix the 2/3 cup of chocolate syrup, the condensed milk and the slivered almonds together in a large bowl and then fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Pour the blend into a 13 inch x 9 inch baking pan lined with tinfoil, cover it, and place it in the freezer.
  5. Freeze the ice-cream for 6 hours or until it has become firm, then use the tinfoil to lift it out of the pan and turn it out evenly onto the layer of sponge.
  6. Layer the top and sides of the cake with the non-dairy whipped topping and drizzle it with chocolate syrup and any leftover almonds.
  7. Return the cake to the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving it up.

Notes & Tips

-Store the cake by covering it and keeping it in the freezer. Do not place any other frozen goods on top of it.

-This cake can be made as much as 2 weeks ahead of time.

-Depending on the temperature your freezer is set at, you may need to remove the cake 15 to 30 minutes ahead of serving.

-Use chocolate cake mix if you'd prefer. Don't be afraid to experiment with different flavours of cake and ice-cream.

-If you'd like a little more variety, use different toppings, such as crumbled cookies, sugar strands, fresh fruit, and/or chocolate chips.

Experiment with Toppings: This cake has had raspberry sorbet and fresh berries added to it. Notice that it's also been given a crunchy cookie crust.

      Thanks everyone. I really am chuffed at all the interest in this recipe. I can honestly say that there aren't many things more enjoyable than a slice of ice-cream cake on a warm day. My family members always have some version or another on their birthdays.

      Thank you to you all for taking the time to read and to leave a comment. I appreciate it.
