This month's Daring Bakers challenge was something I could really sink my teeth in to... ice cream cake! And how fitting considering that it's National Ice Cream Month.
The dessert is comprised of swiss roll cake slices encasing fudge sauce and two different flavors of ice cream. Decided to go a bit architectural with the cake component . Rather than roll it up, as is tradition, I stacked the layers. I really like the striped effect of the finished product.
I used the mint chip and dulce de leche ice creams that I made recently for the filling and whipped up a quick fudge sauce to complete the dessert. What a great challenge!
The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s world – life and food. Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make a bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream cake recipe from Taste of Home.-
