I think it’s a good idea!

I was at a wedding where they had ice cream cake instead of real cake due to allergies and budgets and it was really good, but after the cake was out for 10 minutes, it started melting and falling apart! But it was really tasty and something a bit different! 🙂

Great idea. I went to a wedding with an ice cream cake once and it was a big hit! Everyone loved it and it was really unique. The wedding was over three years ago and it is the only wedding cake I remember…

Having samples of Lactose is a cool idea! Having lived with someone who was horribly lactose intolerant there’s not a lot of deserts that they can eat. Almost everything has either milk or butter in it. Therefore I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Folks who have alergies are use to not being able to have baked goods, so a regular cake wouldn’t be much different then an icecream cake.

Having said that… I think it’s a wonderful idea! I’m actually going to be getting one for my husband for his birthday. He prefers them to regular cake anyday!

missbean, it’s funny, because I was just talking to a couple who had an ice cream cake at their wedding and it was so frozen that they could hardly cut it!

We considered an ice cream cake for our wedding, so I’m biased. But I say "yum" 🙂

We just had an ice cream cake for my daughter’s birthday and it was so hard that we had to saw it into pieces! The cake was made the morning of and it was frozen solid! Not a good time.

I be worried it would melt….you know before each person got theirs. Who wants mushy ice cream…worse while it sits it could go lopsided and on the other hand it could be so hard you may not want be able to cut it nicely.

What about having a dessert table? I’ve seen ice cream sundae stations ehere they can keep it cool until every one has some, bars, pie…cookies even.

peachypear – I think a reason as to why they were so melty was because the venue took them out of the freezer early and the reception was running late, so by the time that the couple actually cut their cakes, the cakes had been out for 20 minutes already.

OO I love the idea of a sundae bar. We had a crawfish boil for my husband’s office and I did a sundae bar for dessert and it was a HUGE hit. I made (ok, bought most of them or begged friends to make them) chocolate chip cookies, brownies, meringues and fudge pieces to mix in with chocolate and vanilla ice cream. We had chocolate, hot fudge, strawberry, milky war and caramel sauces plus whip cream, cherries, nuts, toffee bits, chopped up kit kats (those were for me!), peanut butter chips and all kinds of sprinkles. Yes, I went over board, but it was super fun! Everybody had  blast. For a wedding, I would hire servers to scoop ice cream, because even with 25 people we had a log jam at the wonderful ice cream.

KateMW – You’re reminding me of a wedding that I went to years ago with root beer floats! Mmm… 🙂 They had kegs of root beer and tons of vanilla ice cream. So simple and so fun!

We had ice cream cakes at our wedding and it was awesome =)  Especially since it topped out at 105deg that day!  We just took them out of the freezer, got a few quick pictures and started cutting.  It helped that we had three people cutting and a small number of people to serve, and we put them away in between people coming for seconds and thirds =)

 Everyone really liked it (yay Ben&Jerry’s!) especially since we had the leftovers for breakfast the next day!

A friend of mine got married down in Iowa (I’m in MN too!) and they had The Marble Slab which is along the same lines as Coldstone Creamery bring an ice cream cart to their reception and set it up in the lobby, people basically could order ice cream like in the store.  I think they got to choose 4 or 5 varieties of ice cream to be offered and also had all the fixings that could be mixed in.  It was delicious and everyone enjoyed it!!  I know there are some other great ice cream places in Minneapolis you could look into that maybe would do something similar.
