Simple Rocky Road Ice-Cream Cake & A Happy Sweet 16!

Firstly, I would like to apologize for not visiting you guys lately or have missed out visiting anyone of you! I've been extremely busy and don't have much time for any baking but just some simple meal for my family. Though, under my children's request I did a quick one a couple days ago, at 12am in the morning! *_* It only took me half an hour to complete the whole thing....so, it's OK! And here's what I did.

Ingredients for Biscuit Base :

130gm graham biscuit(I used tiger biscuit), crashed finely.
1/2 cup sugared almond praline
80gm butter, melted

- combine all ingredients and mix to combine.
- then press the mixture to a 8" spring form pan & keep chilled.
(for 9" pan, add another 70gm biscuit)



Ingredients for Ice-cream Mixture :

1.3L ready-made ice-cream (I used raspberry flavour), softened
1 cup canned dark cherry
1 cup mini marshmallow
1 cup ready-made apricot ice-cream

- beat ice-cream untill creamy and then pour half portion over to the biscuit crust base pan.
- throw in all the dark cherry & marshmallow.
- and then cover with the rest of the ice-cream about 3/4 of the pan.
- Freeze untill set before top with 1 cup of apricot ice-cream to have a smother surface.
(which I did it in the next morning)
- again freeze to set before serving.

Just look at those melting ice-cream....almost everywhere! I did cut the cake as quickly as possible. Yes, it's a very challenging task! haha.... After slicing the cake, I put them back into the freezer. They still look great after that!

You know what happened? My son kept on telling me that he doesn't like the cherry but he ate at least 4 slices. I handed 2 slices over to my neighbour. Her daughter was so excited! I only have one slice for myself.

Kristy,
Just chilled? Won't melt in the fridge?
I thought ice creams need to be freezed in the freezer.

Your girl's so big already? Wah. BTW, it's nice to have kids around to love all your cooking.

CheapAppetite said...

Kristy, I can't believe you made ice cream cake. You are definitely good at cooking. Please tell your daughter Happy Birthday. She all grown up now! Funny that your husband loves fried rice so much! :)

My Little Space said...

Hi Tana, thanks alot and nice to hear from you, dear friend. My hubby loves rice not fried rice. hehe... Since I didn't cook for that day. So I get some leftover rice from the fridge and fried it.

mNhL said...

hi Kristy. Dropping by via Alice Law. Once I saw the ice cream recipe, I quickly fly over here! haha

Both my kids' b'day fall on Sept. Maybe I should make this cake for them since kids love ice cream!!! Look pretty simple to do but not too sure if I can whip this up or not because I've never bake before!

My Little Space said...

Hi mNhL, welcome to my humble little space and thanks for visiting! There's no baking needed in this recipe. Just a simple & quick one! Kids love this alot. All the best to you and have fun!
Cheers, kristy

reanaclaire said...

hi Kristy, i came to know this from mNhL post..ehheee. then i read and read few times to get the recipe... wonder whether i can do this or not.. my kids will love it too.. :) if troublesome, just buy one tub of HD back to eat..hahaha..

My Little Space said...

Claire, you really huh! I can not say a thing already! hahaha.... So, why you still wasting your time reading the recipe? haha.... Hey, just kidding! It tastes completely different thing when you added in all those yummy fillings especially marshmellow! Hope you will enjoy it. Hey, maybe even your daughter can make the cake. LOL! Enjoy your day.
Cheers, kristy

MeRy said...

Yummy..I should try it out one day...

AngelineBK said...

Kristy: If i would change to chocolate ice cream. Is it still taste good with marshmallow? any fruits i can put to make the best taste? Disgestive biscuit taste better or tiger for the base?

My Little Space said...

AngelineBK : Hi there, welcome to my humble little space. Thanks so much for your sweet comment. OK now about your questions!
(1) marshmallow goes well with any ice-cream. So, it isn't a problem at all.
(2) do you mean by fruits to go along with chocolate ice-cream? I think blackberry or dark cherry should be fine due to the strong flavour of the fruits itselves.
(3) personally, I prefer tiger butter biscuit (the round ones). Digestive biscuit is less flavourful but the texture is really fine & it's perfect for the base.
Hopefully, this will help! Enjoy & have fun. I would recommend to use a 9" tray (to reduce the thickness). My 8" tray is a little too thick and I have difficulties in slicing it! ^_^
Thanks for visiting. Hope to hear from you more often.
Cheers, Kristy

AngelineBK said...

Kristy thanks for the fast reply. Another question here, i would like to add a layer of chiffon cake within the ice cream, how can i do it?

My Little Space said...

AngelineBK : No worries! That is pretty easy as well. If you want to add the sponge in the middle, pour in the melted ice-cream first then place in the sponge and again pour in the other half of the melted ice-cream. After that quickly place the tray in the freezer. If you want the sponge to place at the bottom, just do the same. Here's another link to my ice-cream cake recipe with sponge.
