caramel coffee icecream cake -

One never can have enough of this deliciously yummy Cake !

My favourite topping complementing the coffee and vanilla icecream here are the caramel flavours & chocolate ganache,

love the crunchy chocolate chips which marry well with the lingering citrusy Aroma & aftertaste from the Grand Mariner !

So last week I made two of these ice cream cakes for my son’s birthday, just the other day,

one large in a 10”spring pan , for the family party and another smaller one 6” spring pan for the babies ( this one without the expresso coffee & liqueur course ).

ordering big bulk packs - as to have enough of Icecream to be left over even after making 2 cakes !

No matter if you have a food processor or not , one can always work with a spatula & a rolling pin and make it in this simple way -

place your cookies in a heavy duty plastic ziplock bag and using a rolling pin , Or a heavy bottomed bottle, smash your cookies until they resemble coarse bread crumbs in texture , in a hot pan add butter and stir in the crumbs , lightly toast and mix well to combine , pour into a spring bottom cake tin & refrigerate to set the base layer .

soften the ice creams as desired on a blender - just in time as needed .
