3D Ice Cream cone cake - two scoops!

3D Ice Cream cone cake – two scoops! By makeprettycakes
This is my sweet little version of the stand up ice cream cone cake, a perfect summer cake for us right now in New Zealand! I did take photos in my little photo booth, but thought I’d share the version with my little girl posing to show scale! Needless to say she was thrilled with it. Happy 2nd birthday baby girl!!! xoxo*Strawberry, vanilla and chocolate caramel mudcake flavors, covered in white ganache and fondant. Coconut grass on fondant board. Ladybird inspired by clay crafter Sabrina Cantafio – so gorgeous! Not sure who to credit the 3D cone idea to, please tell me if you know! Nina xoxo

“Ice cream” is a french vanilla cake, filled with raspberry buttercream and covered in french vanilla buttercream icing. “Waffle bowl” is a chocolate cake, filled with raspberry buttercream, and covered in chocolate ganache and then fondant.Fondant bananas and spoons (spoons have each party-goes name on them – a brilliant idea inspired by jcstefanic’s cake).Real whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolate ganache fudge topping, and of course a cherry on top! And don’t forget to serve with a side of real ice cream!

Popcorn, Ice Cream and Gumballs

By sunnybono
My daughter’s three favorite things. We had Abby’s “Third Birthday Blow-Out” and celebrated with lots of bubblegum. Thanks to Diane’s Cakes for inspiration. The popcorn is actuall mini marshmallows just cut with scissors and painted with a yellow buttery center. This cake is mostly buttercream with fonant accents. Oh…the icecream cones are real cones. It was actually an easy cake.

Icecream Cake

By littlecakesformyhappy
I’m so excited to share this cake with you all. This cake was a completely just because cake. It also challenged me and was a really good learning experience for me. I certainly know what not to do the next time round :-) I made this cake for a dear friend, who’s gorgeous daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday in style with an icecream party. Savanah went ALL out with styling this party and I was thrilled to get the chance to make a cake to match. Willow was over the moon for it and I got the best cuddle in return for the cake. Best thanks ever!! I didn’t get a pic of Willow with her cake, but I’m sure there will be some. I promise to post some when they come through. This cake stood just under a meter high. All the scoops of icecream are real cake, however the waffle cone is styrofoam. To the decorators out there, don’t look too closely, there are certainly some mistakes with this one, but really, overall I love it and hopefully I’ll get to make another one soon :-) Happy birthday Willow Woo Woo xxx

Ice Cream and Balloon cake

By ynagirl
Lea Rose is celebrated her 1st birthday bash with an icecream and balloon themed party. Her mom had a couple of cakes in mind so combining things she liked about different cakes she has found on the internet and Lea Rose’s Invitation, I have come up with this design for her cake. All the little ice creams in the bottom tier were hand cut. :) Bottom tier is non edible and top tier is vanilla cake with rasbperry smbc, covered in ganache then fondant. This is the last cake im going to do before the vacation. I am so happy i took this order in. I have a couple of cakes that i have been dying to make and this one was one of it. So Happy! :)

Ice Cream Sundae

By Steady2Hands
Okay, it’s not really an ice cream sundae but the Birthday girl wanted a simple cake with a cupcake on top topped with a strawberry. Her Mom has ice cream candles to put on the cake so I thought this would be a neat design for the occasion. (I went overboard on the sprinkles – LOL) The strawberry is gumpaste.

Ice Cream cone cake 3D

By EandEmom
My try at the ice cream cake for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. It was a big hit for her ice cream sundae party:)Description “Kudos and thanks to Brooke420 who so graciously shared her technique with all of us on CC for this cake!! Cake board is 1/2″ plywood cut in a 20″ circle, metal flange is screwed in from the bottom and I used rubber door stops as “feet” to make it easier to pick up and move the cake. Cone is a 9″ styrofoam cone covered in textured fondant – a metal threaded 8″ pipe runs through it into the flange and a PVC connector extends PVC pipe beyond that height, into the cake layers. I used 6″ round cake with half ball pan on top for bottom two tiers and a 5″ pan with a Pyrex bowl for the top tier. Cake is buttercream covered with ganache and sprinkle and fondant cherry on top” thanks bayousmiles

Ice cream pop cake!

By EricaObrienCake
I purchased mini popsicle sticks at my local crafts store, then created a template for the ice cream pop shape. I took a “bite” out of a few using a cutter, and made sprinkles out of fondant using a clay extruder. Everything is fondant except for the sticks.

Sophie's Ice Cream Cake

By teaparty
I made this cake for a friend’s daughter who was turning 2! There were a few harrowing moments with this cake as the first support that I had built didn’t work. My cake started to tip and I had to have my daughter come hold it up while I dismantled it (good thing she wasn’t in school yet!). I rethought the support and built a new one and the cake ended up working out great after that. Whew! TFL.

New to this site and so glad I found it! I loved browsing the categories and especially enjoyed the Ice Cream Themed Cakes. The cupcakes by disneygirl are so delightfully simple, dainty, and so elegant. The 'cones' made by SweetTreatsbyJess are simply sweet! I love this site!
