I want to take this opportunity to wish my big brother, McSloppy Deadweight (his new nickname), a Happy 28th Birthday! <3 To celebrate this joyous occasion, as well as my sister-in-law’s birthday who’s birthday is three days later (Happy 26th Birthday Mrs McSloppy Deadweight for thursday!!), I thought I would bake them a cake. For something fun, I wanted to (and had to) bake them an ice cream cookie sandwich cake!
The name is self explanatory – ice cream that is sandwiched between two massive cookies! As I was limited on time, I did cheat and buy the ice cream. It definitely works out to be more convenient alternative. The cookie recipe I used is from Taste, obviously making only two large cookies out of the cookie dough. I did adapt the recipe slightly - I used chocolate M&Ms instead of chocolate pieces/chips as I wanted colourful looking cookies.
I didn’t plan it out too well. I constructed the cake and put it back in the freezer so that the ice cream could set/harden again, but it totally crossed my mind that the cookies would freeze and become rock hard. So come time to serving it, it was a disaster.
My advice for those who will try such a thing, this ice cream cookie sandwich cake should be served immediately after made/constructed. This is so you get the best of both the cookie and the ice cream. Despite the difficulties of trying to serve the cake, it was still delicious…….
