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.

    1. When did you become an Ice Cream Lover?Really, when haven’t I been an Ice Cream Lover? I’d have to say, it was love at first bite.

    2. Favorite All Time Flavor?Now this is a tough question to answer, since so many great flavors come to mind. In terms of things you can get at any grocery store, coffee Oreo, coffee Heath bar crunch, mint chocolate chip, and mocha almond fudge are always welcome. When I was a graduate student at Duke, I dated a woman who owned a gourmet ice cream store, and her Rossini’s Dark Chocolate #2, fresh off the dasher, was pretty amazing: extremely rich, smooth, and complex. I like spicy flavors, and have had some excellent cinnamon and even better fresh ginger ice cream. I think my all time favorite was a fresh mango ice cream that had absolutely explosive flavor.

    3. Favorite eCreamery flavor?You guys made me a custom flavor that I called double – double because it combined coffee and mocha as base flavors, with premium chocolate brownies plus chocolate chunks mixed in. That turned out well. Really well.

    4. What is your favorite “Ice Cream related memory or tradition”?I have fond memories of sitting on top of a wooden ice cream machine filled with a rock salt/ice slurry, turning the crank, working up an appetite for the fresh, soft ice cream. Also, I must say that a deciding factor in my choice to go to Dartmouth College was that an alumnus had bequeathed them a fund that provided unlimited soft ice cream at all meals in the dining halls. That decision turned out well – it’s a great place to go for an undergrad education.

    5. What has been the best part of being a 6 month Flavor of the Month Member?Creating premium ice cream flavors is fun!

    6. Any other Food Loves besides ice cream? Since I live in Baltimore, I have to plug the crab cakes! And shrimp salad, Peking duck, snow pea tips, fresh Copper River red salmon, roast lamb…
