So my FI’s birthday was this past week and I got him a Dairy Queen cake. He commented while eating it that he thinks it would be awesome to have a Dairy Queen Wedding cake. I don’t if this even a possibility since it would have to be kept in the freezer till just before we need it and I don’t even know if they make them.
I think one option is to buy several of their sheet cakes that we can serve and just cut a nicely decorate round one when we cut the cake. It just wouldn’t look like a traditional tiered wedding cake.
Has anybody ever been to a wedding with ice cream cake? Or more specifically Dairy Queen cake?

It’s totally possible, I worked at Dairy Queen in high school and we did three wedding cakes that I was aware of. You just have to make sure the venue is able to keep it frozen until about an hour before you want to cut it.
They can do a traditional round tiered cake, and have extra sheet cakes too. We even did one that was heart shaped!

I’ve been to a wedding with Dairy Queen icecream cake. It was delicious.
I agree that there may be some logistical issues. If your venue is willing to give up freezer space, and you don’t have your heart set on a traditional wedding cake, I say go for it.

@Chillmer- Thanks for the info. That’s good to know. We will probably look into it for pricing info!
I think it would be a unique idea, most people probably haven’t had a Dairy Queen wedding cake.

That is such an awesome idea! We both loveee DQ cake! I’ve never even thought about this, but it definitely is a possibility.

Yum! I would love to go to a wedding with an ice cream cake… but my hubby can’t eat dairy. If you have guests with milk allergies that might be an issue. It would also be fun to have a dairy queen grooms cake, that way people would have options.

I still think about doing this for our cake…I LOVE ice cream cake! Plus we get a dessert with our meal, so how delicious would THIS BE! If not, maybe I will get one for our day-after gift opening….or else request one at my shower. Yum yum yum! I say go for it!

This sounds so good right now. I may buy one before the wedding, just for me. Yep, just me and a fork. That’s how it’s done!

I am doing this!! I stopped by dairy queen the other day to .. ahem, buy a chili dog, lol… and it just hit me, this is the perfect idea! It’s only like $2 per person when you divide it by price/slice, so wayyy cheaper than traditional tiered wedding cake, and just way more fun! 🙂

@artbee: Traditional wedding cake and traditional icing and buttercream icing all contain dairy. If your husband can’t eat dairy queen because of the dairy, he can’t eat normal cake either. I’m lactose intolerant and I take a lactase enzyme pill with the first bite of dairy and I’m set.
If you do this, make sure your venue does bowls, not plates. Otherwise half eaten slices will melt everywhere.
