My 5-year-old son has been collecting Vinylmation figures for a little over a year now. He adores them and looks forward to picking one out on special occasions and park visits.
For his fifth birthday party he decided he really wanted a Vinylmation cake. But he also wanted an ice cream cake. And chocolate. There had to be chocolate.
I’ve made a lot of spectacular cakes for my kid over the years. I love a good cake challenge. I’ve done silver sprayed robots and kids in sleeping bags at a slumber party. I’ve done princess and castle cakes and superhero cupcakes.
What I’d never done was an ice cream cake. So basically, this cake was done on a wing and a prayer to Walt, and lo and behold, it turned out great! Here’s the ingredients & supplies list – directions in the slide show below.
- Two packages birthday cake flavor Oreos (or whatever sandwich style cookies you prefer)
- Two gallons (plus) ice cream, depending on the size of your bowl. We used 4 and a half 1/2 gallon containers of ice cream to fill ours
- Gel color food coloring (concentrated – available from baking supply and craft stores)
- Two packages fudgey brownie mix (and items needed to bake the brownies)
- Melting chocolate and sprinkles
- Marshmallows (optional)
- Stainless Steel Bowl
- Cling Wrap
- Vinylmation figures
- Lollipop style sticks, colored tape, embroidery floss & sticker paper for banners (optional)
- Toothpicks or skewers
