Vegan ice cream, no such thing!

I love cake, and birthdays are the best times for special cakes. Keeping this in mind I wanted to make an extra special vegan cake for B for her birthday. Only an ice cream cake would do. "But wait",you say to yourself, "vegan ice cream cake doesn't exist!". It does according to The Gluttonous Vegan

I followed her directions as best as I could...

I couldn't get B out of the house long enough to bake the cake part, so I ordered three round vegan cake layers from Simple Kneads Bakery. They even stored them in the fridge for me!

My prepared cake box and rice ice creams...

Step 1: Bottom layer of cake

Step 2: Spread vanilla layer of ice cream

Step 3: Layer two of cake

Step 4: Strawberry ice cream layer

Step 5: Top layer of cake, freeze, and hide.

Step 6: Put icing on the cake (I did this part with an access card in the front seat of a car in the dark, because Kate and I lost the knife. I wanted the cake to be a surprise, so I made it in the yarn store and then left B's party to spring it on her. I left the icing to the last min, hence the car icing fiasco.)

Step 7: Eat! (There are not any photos of the finished cake because people ate it, but believe you me it was fantastic!)
