I'm over in Atlanta today where it was 103°F! It was hot, I'm telling ya!
So, I can't write long tonight... it's late and I'm tired, but I've been missing my little cake blog, so I thought I'd share this fun ice cream cake... maybe it'll help you cool off just looking at it!
There are several versions of this cake on Pinterest and I used them as inspiration when my customer sent me a link to one of them.
But let me tell you... this cake wasn't as easy as I imagined...
I really underestimated the weight of the ice cream cones combined with the Mississippi heat and this is what I ended up with the first time I tried to deliver the cake....
Yeah, it was THAT bad.
But I took it home, scraped off the frosting and tried again.... and eventually delivered a finished cake to my customer (although I wasn't as happy with the finished product as I'd have liked to be).
So my advice to you, if you want to do this cake.... find advice from somebody other than me - there's got to be an easier way! Have any of you done a similar cake? Do you have any ideas on how to put the ice cream cones on the cake? I'd love to have your thoughts and input - please leave some comments!
OH, and P.S.... you can't just cut the cones in half - they seem to crumble... or at least that's what happened to me.
