Aloha,

I'm an infrequent visitor (I really must drop by more often) but wanted to share the tiki ice cream cake I made last weekend. I'm so proud.



It was made using a cheap plastic tiki wall-hanging (the $5 kind that you get at the party supply stores) as the mold. The outer shell is melted chocolate. Inside is a layer of ice cream and a layer of cake. The flames are raspberry and mango coulis.

Outstanding!

Rum-flavored ice cream, right?

I know that plastic wall hanging! How much ice cream did it take to fill it?

Absolutely fabulous use of the Party City Tiki!

I too am wondering how much ice cream? Did you use a sheet cake as the base...I'm envisioning a rum-soaked cake with pineapple-coconut ice cream on top. (Now I'm hungry)

It took:

* about 2.5 gallons of ice cream, softened by putting it in a KitchenAid stand mixer
* 2 cakes (9"x13")
* 24 - 30 oz. of chocolate for the shell

I used 2 tiki masks, one layered in side the other, for stability. One mask is just too flimsy on its own.

The cake was choco-macamadia.
The ice cream was banana (altered plain vanilla with real bananas and banana liqueur)

Good work! That's art we can sink our teeth into! And delicious, no doubt? We haven't heard the full review until there's commentary on the flavor!
