When I read about this homemade ice-cream cake from My Little Sprouts!, I was so happy because I just can't believe that there is such a simple recipe exist in this world ~
The original recipe is from My Little Space and I quickly 'fly' over to her blog to get more information. I was even happier when I came to know that the ingredient required and methods to make this cake are quite simple. Well, at least I understand them! haha
I amended the ingredient a little bit. Instead of the original Tiger biscuits, I used Digestive because I happen to have this biscuits in my drawer. And Digestive biscuits really make a good base ! And instead of butter, I used margarine.
For the ice-cream, I used this. Don't go WOW yet. I have this too in my freezer and hence, I used it to make my 1st trial cake. This is also my 1st time buying such an expensive ice-cream because a few months back, the Hypermarket had a promotion for this brand. RM50 for 2 pints. A tad too sweet for me. Still prefer the cheaper type actually.
I melted the ice-cream and beat till creamy ~ errr.....not too sure how does 'creamy' looks like so I just beat till a lot of bubble appeared. I stopped because my hand are tired. ^_^ and I thought, hmmm....should be done.
I poured the melted, beaten ice-cream into this Tupperware and freeze it. For the top, I used Vanilla flavor (the other pint of ice-cream I had in the freezer).
The next day...........taadaa...........my ice-cream cake is done! Look at the faint black line on top of the biscuits based. That's the cookies n' cream sinked at the bottom and they make a nice outline.
The taste ? YUMMY ! It just bring out a very special taste when eating the ice-cream with the cookies based. Most importantly, hubby said it was nice ! ^_^
I did not add any fruits in between because this was only for trial. I bet with some fruits like kiwi / mango / grapes will make it taste unique.
Next, am going to make this cake again for YX & XJ's birthday (sharing) since both B'day falls on the same month with 5 days apart. Just a plan only. Let's see if I got the confidence to get this done or not !
While exchanging some e-mails with Mummy-J, I was even thrilled when she gave me some great ideas. She suggested to top the ice-cream with jelly. Or the jelly cubes can also be added in between of the ice-cream. For the pan, she suggested to buy those small & round disposable aluminium casing and I can turn my ice-cream cake into cupcakes-style ! I can't wait to go for shopping now !
