Having a birthday party in summer is so much fun. You don’t have to worry about snowstorms ruining the fun. Ice cream cakes are much enjoyable in this season. Rather than buying sugar-laden regular cakes, get your birthday ice cream cake and enjoy your summer in style.
Ice cream birthday cakes are layered sponge cakes or cookies with ice cream in between the layers. The most common type is the three-layer with ice cream sandwiched between two layers of the cake.
Typically, the cake is baked normally. If different shapes are required, the cake is shaped and frozen, if necessary. Ice cream is frozen separately, and the components combined while in their frozen state. In most cases, whipped cream is used for frosting. This is because other frostings do not adhere to frozen cakes. After frosting, the entire cake should be frozen until it is served. Some people allow the cake to thaw, to facilitate slicing. However, you should look out to ensure the ice does not start melting. Use a sharp knife for easier slicing.
How to soften the ice cream?
Homemade ice cream cakes can be too icy. If you have trouble working with the frozen ice cream, there are many ways to soften it. Scoop small ice cream balls and put them in the mixer. Turn it on for utmost two minutes. The ice cream will be soft but still solid enough to adhere.
How long can you store it?
Ice cream birthday cakes Victoria advises its clients to store the ice cream cake in the freezer for utmost seven days. This is because ice crystals start to form on the ice cream and degrade the quality of the cake.
When stored for longer periods, ice cream on the birthday cake may have a grainy texture. If tiny ice crystals melt and then refreeze, they end up forming larger ice crystals. Large crystals can also form as a result of evaporation when moisture recrystallizes on the cake. This degrades the quality of the cake.
