Yes, I know, she's slightly odd for not liking cake. Last year we layered loads of different flavours & sweets & sauces (all fruity,) into a large perspex bowl & put her candles on that, which she loved. It's her 13th this year, so I was having a think - do you think it would work putting it into some kind of cake of jelly mould? The only drawback I could think of would be that you wouldn't see the icecream through the side, and you probably wouldn't be able to pop it out of the mould without defrosting it? Or am I being dense and this is a really bad plan?
Yes they are all the rage here on Australia too. More the norm than ordinary birthday cakes in fact. I bet there are recipies all overvt the Internet. I have definitely got one for one of those barbie cakes as my dd wanted it but I did it with real cake instead. Do you want me to look in the book?
lmao eglu - not sure dd's friend's parents would be too keen on the rum/limoncello in that recipe - but definitely one for an adult dinner party! But DH has said she just wants to stick a load of flavours in a bowl again, so no icecream cakemaking for me this year! Maybe next year though!
Wow - that website's fantastic - I get so bored of having to pick the same old blardy flavours - whenever we go to France they always have the most fabulous choice of flavours, even in the tiny little village restaurants - and we always say 'Why can't you get that choice in the UK!?' So many thanks for that carrots, she'll love it!
