So I decided (much to my Mothers chagrin) to make my own birthday cake this year, because I wanted to experiment. I found out later that my Mum must not have had very much faith in my cooking ability because they had bought Vienettas as back ups in case my experiment failed.
The inspiration from this cake came from seeing a picture of an insane multi-layered chocolate, ice-cream and Violet Crumble cake. I decided that it was crazy and just too much, also I bet I could make something like that. So I began planning.
I wanted the top layer to be ice-cream, my fear of having a chocolate cake bottom layer was that the ice-cream would be too heavy for it… my solution…
Omm nom NOM!!
So then I took 2 litres of Peters Vanilla Ice Cream (No I did not make my own – ain’t nobody got time for that!) and smashed Tim Tams and crunchies all through it. Crunchies I left in BIG chunks so that the honeycomb didn’t get too hard.
I used the same tin as the brownies and put the ice-cream into the tin and into the freezer overnight to set.
Then the ice-cream gets laid straight on top of the brownie, you can used whipped cream to “frost” and decorate the top as you like.
This cake was such a roaring success that I have already had a request to make one for someone else’s birthday next weekend!
Seriously you guys, this was my best. Experiment. Ever!

Was that the Saw movie it was? I didn’t know which one it was as someone else picked it out. That one was a little too much for me, just the rings… blergh 🙂 I made it through Hostel though.
My Husband calls me “walking IMDB” hahaha, I get my TV & film love from my Dad and my Books & Music love from my Mum 🙂

Nope. Never seen them. Of course, I’m in the US. I’ll have to look for them next time I’m in a store with international foods.

Sooo badly good! Often when celebrities come over here they request Tim Tams. I still remember seeing a panel of cast members from Buffy when I was younger and someone in the audience had Tim Tams, James Masters lifted his shirt as payment for one 🙂
