Good one Mike icon_lol.gif But on a more serious note....You can use layers of cake and softened ice cream(any flavor you choose) alternate the layers in a cake ring and place in freezer to harden back up. Remove cake from freezer at least one hour before serving and it won't be too frozen or hard for eating. If cake ring sticks you can opt to place a strip of acetate in cake ring before layering your cake or you can slightly heat the cake ring with a torch to remove ring. Just slightly or you will melt your ice cream and have a mess.hth icon_biggrin.gif

You do realize you asked a Q that Baskin&Robbins along with DQ has been trying to answer also.

That depends. Are you making your ice cream from scratch or using store bought? I recommend store bought for a first timer cause your outcome will be more consistent. I know that walmart has eddy's on sale almost all the time. Make sure the ice cream is a good quality cause that is the star of your cake. As far as pricing I probably would charge slightly higher than a reg cake cause this is a specialty that not everyone does. I recommend a light icing like whipped or IMBC. You can also spread complimenting preserves, hot fudge, oreo cookie crumbles, heath crunch, etc on your cake layers with the ice cream to enhance it and provide additional texture. Kinda like a sundae cake. UMMMMMMM!!!! Now I need ice cream!hth icon_biggrin.gif

Darn, and I just spoke with another customer at a craft store who makes ice cream cakes all the time - oh well, timing is everything - too bad you didn't know about this a couple of weeks ago when I was shopping for my cake supplies!!! Good luck on your cake - I'm sure it will be beautiful - please be sure to post the picture!! AND, let us know what method worked best for you. That's something I haven't tried yet, so I will be watching this thread.

Thanks mm...I was thinking about using a regular BC as an icing (I use sugarshack's recipe-I'm sooo spoiled!! icon_lol.gif ) Do you think that would be okay? I've never tried the other two options you gave, and being my first time - I'd like to stick with something that's familiar to me... thumbs_up.gif Trying not to stress about it...b/c I'm gonna have another regular cake to do around the same time...so the easier the better...uknowwhatimean?! icon_wink.gif

Sugarshack's receipe is so creamy...I think it could work, but what do I know about ice cream cakes...NADA!! icon_biggrin.gif

TIA for the tips!! icon_smile.gif

I'm not 100% sure, but aren't ice cream cakes usually make with soft serve (i.e. DQ) style ice cream? Boxed (store bought) ice cream may be too hard to work with - you may have to melt it a bit to work with it, and I don't know if it would refreeze the same. Just wondering, not stating a fact.

Store bought is fine to use. It does have to be softened (not melted) consistency in order to scoop/spread it onto your cake layers and I've had no problem with it refreezing. I live in Florida where it is over 100 degrees and sometimes my ice cream/popsicles melt on the way home. They have always re-frozen without issues. Plus ice cream beats out soft serve anytime as far as flavor and varieties available are concerned. As far as the icing goes I'm sure the one you are comfortable with will work out fine. Just be sure that it will be able to soften properly along with your cake. But your right trying too many new things all at once probably isn't a good idea. Happy Caking! icon_biggrin.gif

hey, calm down everyone. Some people just see things a little differently than others. A legitimate question may seem obvious to another. I don't know how many questions I've asked on here when I should have just thought about it for a while. I was panicked, freaked out so I ran to CC. Then like the next day I reread my post and think "of course, I knew that all along!"

I might have to side with Mike here. You asked if the cake would be frozen and he gave you a very helpful answer. Yes, it will.
