Has anyone ever tried this? i told her the only thing I could think of was to have a dummy for display and then the hotel could keep the real cake in their freezer. Can I stack it if it's going to stay frozen? If anyone has any advice on this one I would really appreciate it! Thanks.

The dummy cake with the keeping the other frozen is a possibility.

But ice cream melts too fast to work with to stack & display as a wedding cake.

The life expectancy of an ice cream cake outside the box is brief but understandably delicious.

Wedding cakes are technical creations--has to be just so--ice cream cakes need not apply.

Plus I live in Florida lol Eventhough it's in November it can still be pretty warm here. Thank you for the help. I think I'll tell her display cake fine but if she wants ice cream cake served it will have to be sheets. She had wanted a replica of the dummy as the actual cake. I've been having panic attacks delivering regular cakes I can just see this going really, really badly.

I mean it could be done easiest on premise standing inside a walk-in freezer or being near a zero degree freezer. You could deliver with dry ice but...

I mean--she's nuts though. Brides think the regular physical laws that govern every other day of the world do not apply to thier big day. Why do they think that way? icon_biggrin.gif

I just went to a wedding a couple of weeks ago that had ice cream cake.

Let me explain, they had a loverly regular chocolate cake on display- bc w fondant accents.
Then when they served the cake we got the chocolate wedding cake and a slice of carvel ice cream cake.

everyone was very happy about it.
Oh an this was in clearwater florida.
This was indoors
but theres no way the ice cream cake would have lasted on display, within just a few minutes of being served it was turning into mushy goo.

Thank you both for the help. She had gone to the ice cream store and he told her they don't do that and gave her my name, he had told her he didn't know if that could be done. Anyway, I feel more comfortable with the sheet cake idea. Now I just have to find dry ice icon_biggrin.gif thanks again.

in Reno, I saw a BR 31 flavors do a wedding cake. They had the recep at the casino I worked at. It was this 4 tier cake they brought out right before the cutting ceremony. I thought it was such a waste. The cake was really pretty but nobody got to see it. It was just plain iced, bead boarders with flowers cascading down. It was also hard to serve. The cake was rock hard and impossible to cut and then it was mushy and hard to work with. Very little middle of the road great to work with.
