One of the first things FI said to me about our “someday” wedding back when we were first dating was that he wanted an ice cream wedding cake. The boy loves DQ cakes, and I’ve been trying for YEARS to convince him that, no, we can’t just buy DQ cakes, stack them, and call it a day.
So I scheduled a tasting with our local Coldstone Creamery that does catering and he loved it! It was so much fun – we got to taste everything and mix, remix, and mix again different add-ins to get our perfect flavor.
It’s not cheap (about $3.50/serving versus $2.50 for regular cake from well-known bakeries around here), but it’s worth it to make FI’s wedding dream come true.
Our cake will be frosted in Coldstone’s bettercream (which is like buttercream and whipped cream had a love child and it is goooooodddd), and will be a traditional three-tier cake.
Our bottom layer will be FI’s choice, which is yellow cake layered with chocolate ganache and sweet cream ice cream mixed with oreos. The top two layers are my flavor, which is devil’s food cake layered with sweet cream ice cream mixed with pretzels and chocolate shavings. I’m soooo excited for it! We have all sorts of coldstone in our freezer now, too – we tried a bunch of different combos and she gave us all the leftovers to take home.

Uh, yum. FI gets me Coldstone cupcakes for my birthday every year (and last year, he got me a 6 pack and then FMIL got us a dozen because she heard he got them for me the year before). Yummmmm.

This sounds amazing. But how does it not melt??? Do you only take it out of freezer when its time for serving?

Oh wow, I had no idea Coldstone catered, and an ice cream wedding cake was at the top of FI’s wish list (my mom totally shot that down, ha). Maybe we’ll do this for his groom’s cake instead, thanks for the idea!!!

@StL.Ashley: We love DQ cakes too – they are amazing!
I love your idea of an ice cream wedding cake, yum. I may just let FI buy DQ cakes and stack them, lol.

@PrincessBride2014: They make them, then put the cakes in a blast freezer, which freezes them super hard (the lady we met with said she dropped a small one on her foot once after it was in the blast freezer and it broke her toe!). They have a freezer truck to deliver them, too – it is 30* below zero. So, once they’re all set up, depending on the style, you actually have to wait for them to be soft enough to cut. Our style (a normal stacked cake) won’t be soft enough to cut until three hours after delivery!
I’m assuming if you were having an outdoor reception or something it might be an issue, but our reception is indoors and at a seperate location from our ceremony so it’s no big deal for us.

@StL.Ashley: That is so amazing! Ice cream cake is the only cake I like and I was like no way can you do that for the wedding. Definitely something I am going to consider now. Especially from Coldstone-yummm! Thanks for the tip 🙂
