Steps

Strawberry Ice Cream

  1. To prepare the cake tin for the layered ice cream cake, lightly spray the bottom of a 7” cake tin with oil spray and line with baking paper. Use a sheet of acetate and line the inside of the cake tin with it. You want a piece that’s about 8 inches high. Once in the cake tin, tape each end together and set aside.
  2. Making the ice cream cake is easy. Each layer is made the same way. Begin by adding the cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract to three separate bowls. To make the strawberry ice cream add the strawberry flavoring and pink food gel. Use a hand mixer to whisk each one to stiff peaks.
  3. Add the confetti sprinkles and gently fold in using a spatula.
  4. Use a spatula to add each layer of cream in the prepared cake tin. Firmly tap the cake tin against your work bench with the addition of each layer.
  5. Place in the freezer overnight.

Decorations

  2. To prepare the whipped cream add the cream and vanilla into a large mixing bowl and whip to stiff peaks.
  3. Fit the end of a piping bag with a Wilton 1M piping tip and frost a swirl of cream around the top of the cake. Sprinkle with more sprinkles to finish.
