    Default Making ice cream cake for dd - tips please!

    I want to make dd an ice cream cake. Want to keep it simple and am planning on using store bought vanilla ice cream then putting it into a round springform tin and when ready will take it out and put a Disney princess icing topping which I have already bought from eBay.

    I also want some ideas for decorating the cake and making it pretty plus adding some fresh fruit.

    Has anyone made one and can you share your tips? I am not doing a practice run so this will be it! Luckily it's just our family so no guests to impress, just dd

    I often make ice cream cakes but use my own recipe (incredibly easy, just whip thickened cream & sweetened condensed milk, then add crushed up crunchie bars or some other chocolate bar then put in springform tin & freeze).

    Maybe you could add pink food colouring to the ice cream to make it pretty? And some fresh berries around the edge?

    Good luck!

    You could decorate the cake with some of those store brought icing sugar flower decorations. Woolies sells a limited range, but cake decorating suppliers sell much more variety.
    You could make chocolater shards to decorate the sides of the cake- either white or milk chocolate, melt then pour onto a large tray in a thin layer. When almost set cut into long pointy shards, refridgerate until needed and then once cake is unmolded place choc shards around cake. You could even tint white chocolate pink to be more princessy.

    I often make ice cream cakes using a bundt tin. Soften icecream. Mix in crunchie, chopped Turkish delight, marshmallows and Oreos. Freeze and turn out. Coat with ice magic and sprinkles. Voila!
    I'd recommend lining your tin with cling wrap so you can get it out in one piece!

    The pink colouring is a great idea ! I saw a recipe on the net using double cream and condensed milk but wasn't sure if it would turn out. Do you use 600ml cream and 1 can condensed milk?

    Yep that's exactly how I do it - 600ml thickened cream, 1 can condensed milk whipped up. I like it for ice cream cakes - I think it holds its shape better for longer.

    What a PP said about cling wrap in the tin is spot on too
