If I were you, I would have the grooms cake be an icecream cake. I would not want to be worrying about the cake all night. Now I will give this idea to my fiance, he loves icecream cake!

Okay, I realize this post was 3+months ago, but I just found it when googling "DQ Ice cream cake, wedding". Because fiance and I are sooooo doing this. We’re just planning to do sheet cakes though. And maybe a round cake to display – either DQ or a "regular" cake.

 We are frequent DQ customers and neither of us really like cake… so this was a natural choice for us. As a previous poster said, it needs to sit out for a good 10-15 minutes before you cut it anyway so it should be fine.

I don’t know if they can do any kid of special decorating on it, besides their usual but I don’t think you want Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or some other licensed weird picture on it. But maybe you can get a plain one and bring it to another bakery to be decorated more elaborately? I don’t know…

 Good luck!

I know this is months after the original post too, but my fiancee hates regular cake so we’re going to have a small ice cream cake (probably DQ or Carvel) for us and the wedding party and a normal sheet cake for the guests. This should save on costs (I don’t want to think of how much an ice cream cake for 130 people would cost), and yes most ice cream cakes need to be taken out a bit before the cutting so we should be able to get good shots of it too.

If the venue doesn’t have enough room, consider getting a small (like, smallest they have) ice cream cake and a regular sheet cake for everyone else.

i agree. i don’t think the ice cream would hold. maybe serve it on the side?

Oh man my FI LOVES ice cream cake too – why did I never think of this?!?!  We still have leftover DQ cake in the freezer from his birthday last month LOL.  I hadn’t planned on having a groom’s cake because two cakes seemed silly to me, but not so silly anymore!   Smile

Um, I’m pretty sure this WOULD work.

DQ could make 3 round cakes: 6, 8, 10 (or whatever sizes they sell). You could stack them, put a ribbon on the bottom of each layer & have the waitstaff bring it out just before you’re ready to cut the cake. Most ice cream cake needs to sit… so your guests wouldn’t end up with puddles of cake. They recommend leaving out DQ cakes for 15 minutes before serving anyways. I say do it. 🙂

Thank you bees! My Fiance and I are gluten intolerant and we wanted an ice cream cake instead of a real one. Im so excited about it now!

We did this and it was a hit with the guests.  We ordered a small, 5″ cake for our cutting so we didn’t have to worry about the messiness of the melting ice cream cake.  It was one of my favorite parts of our reception!
