Ice Cream Wedding Cake

Tue Dec 11, 2007 11:35 am

Hi Girls,

I need your help. My FH has stamped his foot down and decided we have to have an Ice Cream Wedding Cake. He doesnt like normal cakes, but loves his Ice Cream... so to him this was only natural to want this.
However after trying to explain that you have "cutting the cake" pictures, congratulations ect.. I have tried to tell him that the Ice Cream cake would be completely melted by the time it has been served... however he is not budging in his request.
Has anyone had an Ice Cream cake as their wedding cake, or know of any places in Melbourne I can go and have a look at some??

Thanks for your help

i have never ever seen it done!

maybe speak to ice cream companies such as cold rock, baskin and robins...

do you have the option in your budet to have a normal cake on display then an ice cream cake stored in the frezeer which can be served to guests after the cake cutting, and then the normal cake, can do home with guests....

Maybe u can have a fake cake on display, like a foam cake done up the way you want it, and the ice cream cake safely tucked away in the freezer!

There is a shop in Netown in Sydney called Gelatomassi and they make all of their gelato on the premises and they have a book and it has wedding cakes in it. It is awesome!!! Just found a website
http://www.gelatomassi.com.au/weddings_06.htm

They are Italian people that own it. I have no idea about Melbourne but maybe that area that there are lots of Italian restaurants in might have a similar type of shop (I cant think of the name of the street, is it Lygon street???? I have no idea, please dont laugh at me).

I can only think of one place. I had an ice-cream birthday cake from there a few years back but I dont know if they make wedding cakes. Its "BULLA" they used to be in North Melb..not sure if they still are. We had to go there to pick it up. So maybe you could call them.. They may even be able to point you in the right direction with someone who can help you if they cant. I remember the cake being beautiful. And I dont think cutting and serving would be a problem as long as you are happy to have it removed after photos and put back into the freezer. It would make a great dessert. I've thought of a few more. I think Dairy Bell and Baskin & Robbins do ice cream cakes. I fact I think Baskin & Robbins do wedding cakes. :D

I'm almost sure Baskin & Robbins do, I've seen some advertised. They look SO stunning, I couldn't tell they were ice cream until the lady behind the counter told me lol!

I've seen an Ice cream parlour make an ice cream cake. It looked really nice. Just tell your reception that you will have an ice cream cake so they can store in their freezer & maybe just take it out when you are about to cut it.. :)

Carousel Cakes in Elsternwick and South Yarra (there could be more branches) will do ice-cream cakes - I was thinking about it myself the last time I went there. Some of the best memories I have as a kid is having ice-cream cake at my birthdays - it's the only cake I would eat.

Unless you're getting married on a stinking hot day, the cake should last out for at leat 30 minutes before melting. Just cut it at the start and have the reception freeze it again then serve with/as dessert.

Not sure where to get them from but I just wanted to say that an ice cream cake would be AWESOME!!! I had an ice cream cake for my 18th & 21st, cause I don't like regular cake. I wish I could have one for my wedding :D

I think its a fantastic idea :)

Before you order your cake, just be sure to check with the venue that they have a large enough freezer - I had this problem last weekend at a friend's 30th as they didn't have space to keep the cake in the freezer.

Side note: I wanted a chocolate fountain for our wedding, but was convinced to have a cake, so unique ideas always appeal to me! :D

I went to a wedding 2 months ago where they had ice cream cake as their wedding cake. Not too sure about all the practicalities of it but they still managed to get photos cutting the cake and then it was taken away and dished up. It was yummo and such a suprise - I'd never seen an ice cream cake at a wedding before.

My sister had one, although she was in brisbane, so can't help with Melbourne side of things.

But she had 3 tiers - chocolate, peanut butter and some fruit flavoured layer.

It'll be fine, most cakes have to stay in the fridge anyway so the reception should be able to have a spot for you. And it won't melt, places that specialise in the cakes make them so they know they have to stand up to long periods not in the fridge. I recommend that you just go to a place that specialises in it and talk to them about it and try some flavours :wink:

i would have loved to have one! try baskin and robbins they are pretty good and can do amazing things! wendy's does nice cakes to but there not as nice. make sure you get something with chocolate or a casing around it as it takes longer to melt. another compromise is that you have a mock cake to cut then have the ice cream to serve.

I love it when things are done a bit differently, and I think cake is a great way to do this. Icecream cake would be a fantastic and memorable dessert.

But personally I loved having my cake on display as long as possible on the night. It was almost like a decoration in and of itself. So as for icecream....I would love it as a guest but wouldn't do it myself. But if you're happy to have it in the freezer all night it's definitely something that can be done so go for it!
