Superheros

October 5, 2015

It has been a busy week, with no sign of it letting up for awhile.
This weekend was spent with a very special “client”who requested a “Spiderman birthday cake with 3 candles, and marshmallows for all my friends.”

Done and done. Here are a few photos of one happy customer and the cakes:

There were actually two cakes: a 3-layer chocolate cake with buttercream frosting, and oreo cookie crumble. It was surrounded by mini cupcakes. The other cake was Spidey himself.

The layer cake was topped with balloons, and a some hand molded chocolate spider lolly pops.

The marshmallows, as he calls them are actually s’mores. These had spider webs on them.

Unrecipe of the Week: Happy Birthday B!

January 14, 2012

Today is B’s birthday and of course, there will be cake. When she was little, there were elaborate Winnie the Pooh creations with 3D features and piped fur. Later, we made panda bear cupcakes and chocolate fondue with sticks of cake, fruit and marshmallows arranged  like flowers in terra cotta pots.

So what does the kid whose mom actually loves to make these things ask for? An ice cream cake. Yup, Baskin Robbins or Carvel would be fine. No fancy flavors, just chocolate and vanilla. My heart sank. So, ever creative and industrious, I embarked on a homemade ice cream cake. You need time to let each layer  freeze before adding on, but it is incredibly easy to do. I am already thinking of gourmet combinations to make in the future.

B’s Ice cream Cake:

Toss a bunch of Oreos in to the food processor and pulse until they make cookie crumbs. The filling acts as butter would in a cracker crust and binds it all together. Press it into the bottom and about 1″ up the sides of a spring form pan. Freeze.

Soften the ice cream flavor of your choice, and put it into the mixer and beat for a few seconds until it is the consistency of thick batter. Spread it on top of the cookie crumbs and freeze until solid.

Add a layer of hot fudge sauce and freeze.

Repeat with another flavor of ice cream and freeze the whole cake until solid.

Carefully remove the cake from the pan. Press ground cookie crumbs onto the sides to cover, and sprinkle some on the top if you desire.

Decorate, or just cut and enjoy!

Happy 12th Birthday B!
