Frequently Asked Questions

How do I properly store ice cream cake?

By the rule of thumb with desserts, you must place your cake in an airtight container and place it in the fridge. However, since this particular cake has ice cream, you must put it in the freezer so that it will not melt. Ice cream experts will often remind consumers not to let your ice cream sit in the freezer for seven days. This is also true for ice cream cakes.

Why isn’t my ice cream cake creamy?

You might be wondering why your ice cream cake lacks that smoothness. There can be a couple of factors especially when your ice cream is homemade. First, fat content. As a rule of thumb, the higher the fat content, the creamier your ice cream becomes. If you want your ice cream to be creamy, use milk that has a high-fat content. Second, sugar. The more sugar you add to your ice cream, the creamier it becomes. This is due to the fact that sugar doesn’t allow fast freezing.
