Dreamy Ice Cream Cake
Celebrate the joys of summer with a cool, creamy, satisfying ice cream creation. No baking needed for the Dreamy Ice Cream Cake! Featuring the sweet simplicity of vanilla ice cream surrounding a refreshing orange sherbet filling, this unique frozen treat is a true crowd pleaser. It´s a breeze to put together using the Fanci-Fill™ cake pan set. The special pans have an indentation for the filling in the center of the cake. Start by pressing softened vanilla ice cream into the pans to create the top and bottom halves of the cake. After removing the ice cream from the pan, add orange sherbet to fill the indentation. Press the two halves together and freeze several hours to allow the ice cream to firm up. Finish the cake off with sliced almonds and mandarin oranges and you´re ready to serve. And the Fanci-Fill pan set isn´t just for summertime ice cream delights. The pans work equally well for baked cakes any time of year – just bake, fill, flip and frost – it´s that easy.
