Father’s Day Ice Cream Pizza

Posted on

Earlier in the week, I asked my three year old if he’d like to make something special for his daddy on Father’s Day. I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised when his response was Ice Cream Pizza!

Here’s the version of Ice Cream Pizza we came up with…

First, we crushed vanilla wafer cookies.

To make our pizza crust, we combined 2 cups of vanilla wafer crumbs with 1 stick of melted butter. Then, we pressed the mixture into a tart pan and placed it in the refrigerator.

We softened ice cream and spread it onto the cookie crust, then placed it in the freezer.  Once frozen, we spread a layer of strawberry sundae topping on the ice cream as our pizza sauce.

We sprinkled shredded coconut cheese onto the sauce.

We topped our pizza with fudge and candy pepperoni.

Slice and enjoy!

The Challenge

Posted on

I’m going after my arch nemesis. That’s right! The Baked Alaska.

I’m gonna take you down, Baked Alaska! Take. You. Down.

A Baked Alaska is essentially ice cream on top of a sponge cake, coated with meringue and baked just long enough to brown the exterior of the meringue. You may remember the story I told about my first and only Baked Alaska attempt, which resulted in a tray of melted ice cream. That was too long ago to identify my misstep. But I’m going after it again!

So, who’s with me?  Anyone else got an itch to battle the big baked frozen treat?

Here’s the deal…

Whip up any version of a Baked Alaska sometime in the next week. Use any recipe, any ice cream flavor(s), any flavor sponge (or pound) cake.  Make your own sponge cake or buy one.  The only requirement is that you have a cake base, ice cream, and meringue.

There are several recipes for Baked Alaska at or Use one of those recipes or create your own version.

For better or worse, I’ll be writing about my showdown with the Baked Alaska a week from today. I’d love to hear how your attempts go! Remember, what’s the worst that can happen?  It melts?  Big whoop.  Take a picture and laugh at it.

I’m coming for you, Baked Alaska!  You, me, a mound of ice cream, and an extremely hot oven. Let’s do this.

Who’s with me??
