Sometimes when we leave a comment at someone's blog, we can have the option to see follow-up comments and this was what I did when I first left a comment in Happy Homebaker's post of an oreo ice-cream cake. Wow... I ended up receiving via my email many many follow-up comments from other bloggers about the ice-cream cake that sets me thinking"hmm... is ice-cream so special? maybe I should try an ice-cream some day."
So, when I thought of making an ice-cream cake for my dd, the first thing I did was to immediately hopped onto her blog! Ice-cream has always been my dd's favourite dessert. So he is always asking whether I want to eat ice-cream whenever we were out but I think he's the one craving for it! LOL! I chose this Tin Loaf Brownie ice-cream with nuts but it was not really that special. It was almost like oreo ice-cream.
I had thought making this no-bake cake would be much easier than baked cakes but definitely it is not. The cake remained soft even after several hours of chilling. It melted and formed a small puddle at the side thus I covered with "Vicenzi" Italian Ladyfingers to hold the heart-shape in shape. It was a good choice as I find this Italian biscuits goes well with not only Tiramisu but ice-cream as well. :)
After this try, my advise is if you need the cake on that particular day, it is best that you make it a day earlier, as it needs a good chill in the freezer before it is good for serving.
I wanted to make some chocolate decorations and pipe wordings so I had fun playing, piping setting and eating the chocolates! :P
The cake was really delicious, I believe no one can go wrong with an ice-cream cake right! The topping can be up to your preferences. :) I'll probably try some fruity flavoured ice-cream if I were to make it again.
I think this is the first time I'm encouraging dd to eat so much ice-cream. Hehe... ok we can rest for 2 months without eating ice-cream ;)
