Swiss Swirl Ice Cream Cake - The July Daring Baker's Challenge

Special occasions....celebrations....children.... summer days and smiles....There is something always wonderful about ice cream.  When Sunita, one of my fellow Daring Bakers, announced the challenge this month, I was thrilled!



I love ice Cream cake.   Mine didn't come out as pretty as I would have liked because, after making the swiss rolls (you could buy them - to make it easier), I filled them with a little too much cream. We had to also make the vanilla ice cream, the chocolate ice cream and the hot fudge....deeeeeelicious!  I added some orange zest to the vanilla ice cream and it tasted like a creamsicle.  I almost stopped there - contemplating just eating all the ice cream - but I continued on with the challenge - and it was worth it. 

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. The recipe for this month’s challenge has been adapted from the Swiss Swirl Ice Cream Cake from the Taste of Home. Slices of Swiss roll are used to line a bowl and then filled with vanilla ice-cream, hot fudge ice cream topping and chocolate ice cream.

Here is the recipe

Until we bake again...

I love the idea of adding orange zest to the vanilla ice cream! And the generous dose of chocolate on top. There are very few things that chocolate can't fix, aren't there? Great work!!

Ruth - Thanks! yes the orange zest was darn good in the vanilla ice cream!

I was LUCKY enough to not only have the cake (and eat it too) on the day it was created BUT to also have it again the next night! Even as "leftovers" this cake rocked - every morsel of it!
