Soccer Ball Icecream Cake & Celebration

15:21 Niloufer Riyaz 17 Comments

Sorry friends for suddenly vanishing from  the blogging world, was just very busy with summer cleaning, just couldnt have time to sit in front of the laptop. Tomorrow is a very special day for us, completing four years n entering into the fifth year of blissful married life. Exactly four years before on the day of the final match of the FIFA World Cup we got married ( missed the final match). Every year I used to prepare cake on or anniversary day. This year I wanted to try something new, since FIFA World Cup is going on n the final match is on Sunday I wanted to make a Soccer Ball Icecream Cake. This is the first time Im preparing this Ice Cream Cake n it turned ot very well. I was just fearing on the icing part as this was something totally new to me, I only used to Ice regular Round cake. Please bear me for the Icing decoration on this cake. I know it is not the perfect one. My little kiddo was standing nearing me when I was icicng the cake n pestering me give him the soccer ball, So just managed to take some pictures before he had a slice of the cake.
Icing for the cake should be done really fast coz since the cake was frozen the butter cream just froze immediately. I used Ready bought Eggless vanilla cake, you can use your imagination or change the quanity of chocolate syrup n the chocolate chips( they gave a crunchy feeling whem having the cake)
Take care not to work in a very hot room as the icecream will start melting.
You can even change the Icing to your choice, I used Butter Cream, You can use any.
Sending them to my own event Soccer mania

Would be busy in the weekend again so wouldnt be able to blog for these two days, See you till then!!
Have a Happy Weekend!!!!
