I've found a cake mold that I'm planning to buy and I'm going to *try* and make an ice cream cake for my ds's birthday. Amazon has it (lots of other places sell it on the web too - I wish I knew of some place locally) here is a link to what I'm talking about - it's called a "dome cake pan set": http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...tchen&n=289717
I'm thinking I'll do polka dot ice cream (b/c that's easy decorating even I can do) so I may put in vanilla ice cream with small balls of strawberry and chocolate ice cream so that when it's cut it's got polka dots in it - although I'm probably biting off more than I can chew!!
However you make it, please let me know how it turns out.
