TIGER ICE-CREAM CAKE WITH HONEYCOMB CHOC-POPS

Recipe by Emily Jabour – The Party Bebe

I spy a tiger hiding amongst some (choc pop) trees! This tiger-licious party cake is super quick and easy to make and is packed with layers, swirls and stripes of delicious ice-cream.

(Makes 12 adult-sized serves or 24 mini serves)

Ingredients:

  • 250 grams choc ripple biscuits or Oreos
  • 75 grams butter, melted
  • 1 litre vanilla ice-cream
  • 1 litre chocolate ice-cream
  • 1 litre honeycomb ice-cream

Method:

  1. Line a 20cm round cake tin with cling-wrap, ensuring there is an overhang on the sides.
  2. Place the biscuits into a food processer and process until they resemble crumbs.  Add the melted butter and process until combined.
  3. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the base of the cake tin and press down to evenly cover the base. Place the tin in the freezer for a minimum of five minutes.
  4. Remove your ice-creams from the freezer and allow them to soften slightly while you make the honeycomb choc pops.
  5. Remove the cake tin from the freezer and then spoon the softened vanilla ice-cream into the base. Use a knife to even out the ice-cream.
  6. Repeat with the honeycomb ice-cream, retaining 1-2 tablespoons for the swirl on top of the cake.
  7. Spoon the softened chocolate ice-cream into the cake tin. Drip the remaining 1-2 tablespoons of honeycomb ice-cream on to the top of the cake. Use a knife to swirl.
  8. Freeze for a minimum of 2-3 hours, remove from the tin and decorate with the honeycomb choc pops.

Honeycomb choc pops

(Makes 6 large pops or 12 mini pops)

Ingredients:

Popsicle sticks

100 grams milk chocolate, melted

50 grams honeycomb, crushed

Method:

  1. Place a sheet of baking paper on to a flat service. Draw different-sized circles (5 – 10cm) on to paper, ensuring you leave enough space between the circles for the popsicle sticks.
  2. Add half of the crushed honeycomb to the melted chocolate. Spread the chocolate honeycomb mixture into each of the circles and then place a popsicle stick into each circle.
  3. Cover the popsicle sticks with additional chocolate and then sprinkle the remaining crushed honeycomb on top. Leave at room temperate to set.

Notes:

  • Most layered ice-cream cake recipes will ask that you place the cake into the freezer after each layer is added, to allow the ice-creams to set. However, there is no need to do this with this cake – the three ice-creams will slightly blend into each other, but this gives the cake its gorgeous swirly, stripy, tiger-like appearance.
  • I used a Cadbury Crunchie bar for the honeycomb choc pops and they were delicious.
