Ice Cream Cakes Inspiration
I had the most pleasure of joining a group of incredibly talented bakers on Instagram to collaborate on fun ice cream cakes. A cake collaboration is when a group of bakers comes together to create their own cake based on the theme of the cake collaboration then they post the cakes on their Instagram feed using the designated hashtag. It definitely is a great way to connect with other bakers and get more recognition for your own cakes! There is always at least one collaboration going on every week, so if you are a baker but aren’t on Instagram, I highly encourage you to create your own account to follow many amazing bakers and maybe join a cake collaboration in the future!
I am so excited to share the fellow bakers’ ice cream cakes and my cake! I was BLOWN away by their ingenuity and creativity! After seeing the cakes, you probably will want to run to the grocery store and get some ice cream for yourself!
My Neapolitan Cake
I decided to go with a Neapolitan cake because it’s one of my favorite ice cream flavors! I used Cake By Courtney’s Neapolitan Cake recipe and buttercream and it was pretty delicious! The only difference is that I swapped out the dry strawberries for real strawberries and used a strawberry emulsion. I used Sweetapolita Rainbow Classic Sprinkles to top this cake with sprinkles! How to achieve the ice cream sketch on the cake? I used an ice cream stencil that I found on Etsy! I painted the stencil with buttercream. It looks so easy but it was so hard to keep the colors from mixing together! I am pleased with how they turned out.
Cotton Candy Ice Cream Cake
How awesome is this cotton candy cake by the collaboration’s host, Tyla?? Absolutely stunning!
