Raising Memories: Watermelon Ice Cream Cake

Watermelon Ice Cream Cake

Here's another cool treat that I whipped up recently (and another idea that came from Pinterest :)



I couldn't find lime sherbet, so I used mint chocolate chip for the green part. I found that the easiest way to line the springform pan with the first layer (of green) was to open the (rectangular) ice cream box & cut a piece (the thickness that I wanted the green layer to be) and then cut it in half (so that it was the height I wanted the cake to be)... I used 4 of those pieces to go around my pan.

I did the vanilla layer the same way. Then for the red part, you mix the chocolate chips in & fill in the rest of the cake. (Can you tell from my picture that I forgot to mix my chocolate chips in- I got a little too excited & skipped that step, so I just stuck them on afterward ;)



I was really happy with how it turned out! Isn't it cute? :)

  12. hey heather! do you happen to know the quantities of ice cream you used (i.e. - a quart for the green, a half-gallon for the watermelon, etc?) - i was hoping to make this tomorrow but it doesn't look like you or the original recipe have quantities. If you know, i'd love to hear!

    1. Hmm, I don't remember exactly how much- I just know that I bought the 2 litre sized container of each kind, and definitely did not use the whole thing.
