FoodieWednesday: Neapolitan Ice Cream Cake

Wifespeaks: Foodie Wednesday

It’s all about “The Compatibility Factor” this week at WifeSpeaks.  And I have just the perfect food entry…Neapolitan Ice Cream Cake!

It’s an ice cream cake consisting of three different flavors – strawberry, chocolate and vanilla – yet so compatible with each other.  This is my second do-it-yourself ice cream cake which I started layering yesterday and finished decorating this morning. I made my first my first ice cream cake, last month in celebration of my brother’s birthday.

I made this for a special guest who is overly fond of ice cream, so instead of regular cake, I made her this instead.  Now that’s a compromise!   She got to eat her ice cream and I still got to practice cake decorating. ;)

I was initially fearful that this wouldn’t turn out nicely because I was working against the summer heat.  The ice cream was melting so much faster than I would have wanted.  I felt better only after I piped the pink decorations and after I saw that the layers were still distinguishable from each other and looked quite decent. :)  The layers actually looked better than my first ice cream cake.

Chocolate. Vanilla. Strawberry. Whipped Cream. Strawberries. Perfect combination!

    What did you use to frost the cake? Is it the same recipe as the one you used on your brothers cake? Thanks!

    Hi Chelsea! Yes, I followed the same steps I used for my brother’s birthday ice cream cake. I used whipped frosting to frost the cake. :D The recipe can also be found in my first ice cream cake entry. ;)

    Hi Tigerfish! Thank you! I like whipped frosting because it is a lot less sweeter than it’s buttercream counterpart. And it is perfect with ice cream. Hee hee. :D
