Ice Cream Cake Recipe

If you haven’t checked out Martha Stewart’s 60 Days of Summer online extravganza of food, crafty party ideas and ICE CREAM recipes, you really need to. Yes, go ahead and leave here now and then come back so you will realize how fantastic it is. You may need a few hours to explore all of it.

One of my many favorite things I found was this recipe for a gorgeous striped ice cream cake. I have made it 5 times since finding it last month. I love how my guests’ jaws drop when they first see their slices placed in front of them.

I should first explain that I am not a chef at eCreamery. In fact, they don’t even allow me to touch things in the kitchen since I am culinarily challenged. I am a source for new ideas and a creative marketing, eCommerce person. I can hold my own in taste testing and thinking of new flavor combinations but actually making the ice cream — way too advanced for me.

So, not being the greatest in the kitchen, you can imagine my Culinary Artist Coworkers’ expressions when I presented these beautiful and amazingly delicious beauties.

I took some creative liberty and made Martha’s creation two different ways.

Original recipe here:  Martha’s Striped Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Ingredients

  • Angel Food Sheet Cake
  • 1 cup blueberry jam
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 2 pints raspberry sorbet, softened
  • 1 pint peach sorbet, softened

In my version, I purchased angel food cake sold in an aluminum loaf pan. This worked extremely well to allow me to “mold” the pan to be firmly against the ice cream and thereby preventing “running” layers.

I also subsituted the flavors. I used eCreamery Raspberry Lemonade Sorbetto and eCreamery Passionfruit Sorbetto (1 pint of each) to replace the raspberry and peach flavors. The colors were beatiful and the taste was very refreshing. My layer lines were not quite as perfectly straight as Martha’s which is no surprise. But I suspect no one would have believed I made them myself otherwise!

I also created a Chocolate Coconut Fudge Ice Cream Cake version. I used the striped ice cream cake recipe from Martha, but subsituted the following:

Chocolate Caramel Coconut Fudge Ice Cream Cake

A Chocolate Caramel Coconut version of Martha's Ice Cream Cake

  • Angel Food Cake in loaf pan
  • 1 cup chocolate fudge – softened
  • 1 pint eCreamery Coconut Sorbetto, softened
  • 1 pint eCreamery Chocolate Ice Cream, softened
  • 1 pint eCreamery Sea Salt Caramel, softened
  • Chocolate Chunks (added as a layer between the coconut and chocolate)

So, sincere delicious gratitude to Martha Stewart for her endless inspiration for new ways to use ice cream.

Here are just a few of my homework assignments for next week, 16 beautiful ice cream cake recipes from MarthaStewart.com.

Calling all College Baseball Fans! Ice Cream Series Team Flavors are Here!

In case you didn’t know Omaha, Nebraska is home to many exciting things…eCreamery Ice Cream & Gelato, Butterbrickle Ice Cream, Warren Buffett and of course, the College World Series of Baseball!

Since 2008, we have welcomed baseball fans to Omaha with a special flavor named in honor of the eight teams in the series. (Of course, being very respectful of NCAA laws against using any trademarked team names or mascots!) Fans can stop in eCreamery at 50th & Underwood in Dundee to enjoy a team flavor, served as a sundae or pick up a commemorative flavor pint. But, when the team is eliminated from the CWS tournament, the team flavor is also eliminated from our Ice Cream Series! Flavor up!

The team with the most “votes” or purchases over the week of the College World Series wins the coveted glory and prestige of our Ice Cream Series. So come in and support your team by devouring some delicious ice cream! We keep a plaque in the store of all Series Champions. Come in and take a look — and a taste! Every year we’re packed with fans and entire teams stopping in to enjoy in the delicious fun!

Since 2008, ESPN CWS Announcers Mike, Orel and Erin Andrews have also looked forward to their annual personal flavor creations. In previous years they have gave grand slam reviews to their custom flavors on air as they announce the College World Series games. “Mike’s Breakfast of Champions” and “Erin’s Energy Aid” were reported as huge hits – except the peanuts in 2009 that Erin reported as a “no-no” for tv announcers with the risk to your on air smile.

2010 was the first year the Winner of the College World Series baseball championship did not also sweep the Ice Cream series. eCreamery originally announced the flavor, “Ribbit Rush” for the TCU Frogs. However, at the request of the TCU Alumni Association and fans, the flavor name, “Ribbit Rush” was changed to “Super Frog Food” as they explained, “HornFrogs don’t actually ribbit.” eCreamery was happy to change the name and apologized to TCU fans for the amphibian mix-up. The response to the new flavor was so overwhelming they took home the win for the 2010 series.

2008 – “Fresno Fuel” 2009 – “Lick “em LSU” 2010 – “Super Frog Food” (formerly known as Ribbit Rush)

Here is our 2011 Line Up. Yes, you can ship them home to fans who weren’t able to join us in Omaha! $59 for 4 team pints of your choice or $99.99 for all 8 pints. (shipping on dry ice included)
