Commonly Asked Questions

How do I keep my ice cream cake from melting?

If you’re going to transport the ice cream cake, use a chest cooler, an insulated container, or an electric cooler that can be plugged in cars and fill them with ice. It is important to place a protective layer between the ice and the cake to prevent the cake or its packaging from absorbing the moisture of the melted ice. If you are expecting long travel hours, then replace regular ice with dry ice. It is better to serve it as soon as possible. If you’re not going to serve it immediately, then keep it in the fridge for a while.

How do you cut an ice cream cake?

If you’re getting your ice cream straight out of the freezer, you first have to thaw it for 10 to 15 minutes maximum so it wouldn’t be too hard to cut. Use a large metal knife and dip it in hot water. Make sure to wipe it dry before cutting the cake. It is important to dip and wipe the knife before every cut because the residue left will stick to the knife, making it harder to slice the cake.
