She chose strawberry, chocolate and vanilla -a Neapolitan flavour combo. But this is brilliant as you can use any ice cream or gelato that you love. You can make it completely chocolate or cookies and cream. It can be your favourite flavour. It can be made a month in advance.
I will next time actually make my own ice cream, just because I like doing it. Keep an eye out for the ice creams I make, very simple.
It was great, the kids grabbed at the small cones, which are overpriced, but it is a party, and they look great, so I went all out.
Don't feel like making a stressful cake, give this a go, too easy, yet very impressive.
Now with the butter, I did not use the whole 200g, just add enough to have a moist crumb, not soaking wet. I also used Oreo's for the base as my daughter loves them.
1 litre strawberry ice cream
1 litre chocolate ice cream
1 litre vanilla ice cream
600g chocolate cream filled biscuits
180-200g unsalted butter, melted
10 mini gelato cones
To make the biscuit shell: Place the biscuits in a food processor and blitz until you get the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs. Pour into a large bowl.
Add enough butter to moisten the biscuits, stir well to combine.
Lightly grease a 20cm round, deep sided, loose bottomed tin.
Pour in the crumb mixture, and using your hands or the back of a spoon, press the mixture into the base and up the sides of the tin. Make sure the base edge is not too thick, use your hands to make as thin as you can. Freeze for 30 minutes or until firm.
