    We thought that me4ever, it's a great idea! A friend of mine does great moulded ice cream cakes, but it has to feed a lot of people so needs to be big, I'm not sure there's room in our freezer. I think they get ice cream cakes on their birthday at daycare though

    I kind of trialled the cake on the weekend. BGs recipe is seriously amazig, I'm in love! Not too sure about ganache as icing, it might be a bit much. And it's not pure white, so I might go with fluffy frosting. I think I need to get a cake leveller lol, my cutting the top off was quite wonky. I reckon I'll need two batches for the bottom, to make two cakes, and one batch for the top, split in two for two smaller cakes.

    I tried the toffee and think I might need a candy thermometer. I got it to soft crack stage, got distracted for just a second and bang, it wasn't toffee anymore, went too far.

    I think it's all going to work alright though, putting it together will be easy enough as long as I can get each part right.

    I'll definitely post pics once it's done! Don't want to share it on fb til after the party so I'll probably want to show off my hard work somewhere asap lol.

    Sahbear, another hint that I forgot in the pm - use good quality chocolate!
    We have made it with Cadbury and it just isn't great (even though Cadbury aren't a bad brand). We pay a but extra and get either Whittakers (it works well) or Lindt. I don't know why, but the others just don't come up quite as well.

    It's finished! I have a lot of progress shots but it's late so I'll just post the final product The lighting isn't great, I think the photos from the party will look a bit better.

    Lol no, there's something going on with the time thingy on the forums, I finished last night and posted at 11:30.

    Party is today at 11, we just need to clean the floors, put up balloons, print out a pin the nose on Olaf, then do the food.

    Thanks everyone One thing I have learnt is, put the toffee on late lol. Today it's kind of bleeding into the icing, it's a bit melty. Still looks alright though and DD is very excited about it

    Love it! I want to make something similar for dd1. Planning to use isomalt for the ice shards as apparently it's stronger and more stable.

    I had to Google isomalt, but using it sounds like a good idea, especially if it's not s sweet as sugar!
