Wanting to make an ice cream cake

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm new here...this is my first post.  I'm an amateur cake maker...I mostly just do it for fun and because the local bakeries wanted an arm and a leg to make the cakes I had wanted for my daughters...I now understand why...it's a lot of workicon_eek.gif !!  But I do enjoy doing it :)

 

Anyway, I received a Kitchen Aid for Christmas and also the ice cream maker attachment for the mixer.  So now my creative side is screaming ICE CREAM CAKE at me and I can't turn it off icon_confused.gif 

 

I'm going to start browsing this website, but thought maybe someone on the forums might be able to start me off in the right direction :)  I am thinking of a Neapolitan cake (layer of vanilla, some fudge, and a layer of strawberry) for my husband's birthday in March...so I have some time to experiment.  I welcome any tips, tricks, and advice. 

 

Thank you!

Shannon

I too got a kitchenaide for Christmas this year!! I can't give you any tips (sorry), but I'd like to know how. If I could figure out how to make one, my weight loss would be so over. I've gained 5lbs just thinking about it.

Good luck,

lol!  OMG...I have to exercise some serious willpower to not eat a ton of everything I make.  I think my first step will be to just make the ice cream and get it to the consistencies I want it ??  And learn how to work fast with children running around me so that the ice cream doesn't melt the second I start to assemble or frost :/ 

 

I think it's going to be tricky...lol.  But I appreciate the good luck...I'll have to post again if I manage to pull it off!!

Yes, please do. Maybe it would help if you have a freezer you can turn waaay down, get it rock hard so you can work with it easier!?

That's a good idea :)  I have two refrigerator/ freezers, so I can definitely utilize one just for the cake!!

When I make an ice cream cake (for family) I use a spring form pan. I line it with waxed paper an start layering the flavors. Freeze well and before un-springing it, run a hot towel around the outside to loosen it.
