DIRECTIONS

  • * In addition to the ingredients above, you will need 1 12 x 9-inch aluminum lasagna pan and plastic seran wrap.
  • ** Although crushed walnuts, chocolate chunks, and assorted candies are listed as ingredients, this part is up to your discretion and your artistic expertise.
  • Shape the aluminum lasagna pan into a cone that will fit the amount of ice cream necessary for this mountain cake. You will probably need to do some cutting and I admit to using duct tape on the outside to seal it. Be careful you don't cut yourself!
  • Cover the inside of the pan with plastic seran wrap for easy cake removal.
  • Spoon about 1/2 of the ice cream into a bowl, using a pastry cutter mash it up with about 2 Tablespoons milk to a thick milkshake-like consistency. Repeat. Pour the "batter" into your cone shaped cake pan, lodge safely in freezer.
  • Mash up the Oreos, and pat onto the open end of your cake (this is the base of the mountain).
  • Allow for the cake to freeze at least 1 hour, and I wouldn't recommend more than 6-8.
  • When the cake is ready to be served, whip the cream.
  • Put the cake on a platter, pour the cream on the "peak." Sprinkle mountain peak with chocolate chunks and crushed walnuts.
  • Place gummy candies artistically around mountain- serve!
  • **Optional: for some extra pizazz, use a warm egg shell half, fill it with about 1 tablespoon of brandy, and place on the peak of the cake. Light it for a FLAMING mountain ice cream cake.
  • ***I posted this recipe as gluten-free, which is incorrect because of the oreos, and I apologize. For a gluten free version, you could substitute with crunched up sweetened rice cakes, or you could just leave out that part completely. Sorry for the inconvenience -- I'm not sure how to change that mistake.
