My daughter just doesn't like cake, so I have been thinking about an ice cream cake for her bday. But we have gotten pretty elaborate with decorations, so she wants a 3d cake design. SO....I think the answer is no, b/c I never even like to refridgerate a fondant cake but I will ask the experts.

Can I cover ice cream cake in fondant????

This may not be the best idea, but it is something I would do. Can you make the ice cream cake, not worry so much about decorating it. Then make the 3-D cake with regular cake. The 3-D cake can be the showpiece, and when it comes time for eating, you can just give your daughter (and anyone else) a slice of the ice cream cake. I know, it's more work. Sorry, you've proabably already thought of that.

Don't get me wrong, she LOVES sweets, but when it comes to cake, she only ever eats the icing. Good suggestion to make a base of ice cream and some cake features!
