Baskin & Robbins – My Birthday Cake

This is a Baskin & Robbins Ice Cream cake which on a bit of a whim before Christmas I ordered for my 28th Birthday. It’s meant for 6-8 servings but it was a really cold day & it was about noon when we had it. There was about half left after 7 of us had a slice. This size is £19 but we did get a voucher for £5 so if you pop in to a store keep an eye out for their leaflets. Down to the important part, what ice-cream did I choose. I still went for a layer of cake as then I can call it one it was chocolate, tasted nice but it could be left out. You can instead of having cake have a third layer of ice cream. For my two layers I picked an old favourite Pralines & Cream (it’s amazing) & a new one that went with it really well was Hazelnut Chocolate. It was like a slightly more adult version of what is essentially for kids other than the bright purple icing I asked for! I loved the design on top with four mini cones which my little nephew loved!

How To Handle A Baskin & Robbins Ice-Cream Cake

What I will say is take a freezer bag with you & maybe even put some ice blocks with it to keep in frozen until you reach your party. We took it from store & went in a taxi as we don’t drive to my sister’s house which was about 10-15 minutes away. When we got there the mini cones were just starting to melt & on the photo you can see a drip from the frosting forming. This aside if you can get to your destination within this time window the cake about 95% of the cake was still frozen. I suggest a big knife as it took my step brother to cut it & always get an adult to do this part. Also depending on the flavours you get be careful as mine contained whole nuts which for kids can be hard to eat or possible allergies. It was also mentioned that if you don’t eat all the cake it can be put in the freezer for up to a year & it will still be good to eat.
