My daughter was having a Mall scavenger hunt for her 12th birthday and when I asked her what kind of cake she wanted she said “surprise me”. So, I came up with a Fashion Cake Idea. I always make ice cream cakes for my kids because they prefer them to regular cake or cupcakes. The only request she had was that it was mint chocolate chip flavored.
To make the cake I used 2 containers of store bought mint chocolate chip ice cream and 1 container of store bought vanilla ice cream. I lined the round cake pans with plastic wrap and softened the mint ice cream just enough to be able to mold it into cake pans. I put them back into the freezer to harden the ice cream.
After the cakes refroze I took the bottom layer out of the pan and covered the top middle of it with chocolate syrup and chocolate crunchies (like the ones you get in the store bought ice cream cakes). I then put the top layer on and refroze the cake again. I softened the vanilla ice cream and used it to frost the entire cake and then put it back in the freezer to harden.
I used colored rolled fondant to make the pink and purple purse, the dress and makeup brush decorations. I sprinkled the makeup brush with red color dust. I used white rolled fondant for the other purse and then painted it with blue color dust. I mixed cake frosting with blue coloring and used a #5 tip to trim the bottom and middle. I used the same frosting to the happy birthday writing. I then sprinkled the cake with blue sparkled sprinkles.
Before serving the cake I used cake frosting to attach the fondant decorations and added a store bought (not edible) blue pearl necklace. My daughter was very happy she could keep this.
She loved her cake and was very surprised! It took a long time to make but it was worth it.
