It’s our boys birthday soon and he’s having a Birthday Party. There is a great local company that makes gourmet gluten-free, dairy-free cupcakes and he loves them. Instead he’s asked for an ice-cream cake.
I’ve been able to find substitutes for our sons many requests for foods since going gluten and dairy free but this one had me stumped. After much searching I’m certain there is no-one locally who makes a dairy-free and gluten-free ice-cream cake.
With the days to his party getting closer I’ve decided to bite the bullet and make the cake for him. My husband is very concerned about this endeavor as our son has turned down tasty foods I’ve made for him before.
I’ve decided to bake two small cakes (approx 4.5 inches round) using a packet mix. I’ll use the remaining batter to make some cupcakes. Both cakes will then be frozen. Another blogger suggested softening some store bought the ice-cream. I’ll use the same two baking dishes to mould the ice-cream. The plan is to have a total of five layers, two of cake and three of ice-cream. I’ll decorate the outside of the cake with softened ice-cream or Mimic Creme
