Kids love Ice cream. Kids love Cake. So what happens when we combine 2 of their favorite desserts in one easy to make/ assemble dessert — they will ABSOLUTELY LOVE it. I made these for a party last weekend and all the kids when googoo-gaagaa over it. This is will be my last entry for Valli’sKid’s Delight: 5 ingredient fix event happening right here this month.
I saw Pioneer Woman make edible flower pots on her show and thought it is a cool idea to serve cake and ice cream in a little terracotta pot, sprinkled with oreo (dirt) and some gummy worms. I bought tiny terracotta pots (2.25″) from AC Moore and they were just the right size for my little guests. ‘Ice cream wafer cones’ would also be great as edible flower pot.
I used homemade chocolate cake and homemade flavored ice creams (here are recipes for homemade ice creams). But good quality store bought stuff would work perfectly. Pioneer woman used store bought pound cake.
Also this happens to be my 700th post, so here’s a little kid friendly dessert to celebrate the occasion.
Cake chocolate cake- Flavor of choice. I used homemade
Ice Cream vanilla mango yogurt- Flavors of choice. I made with , and frozen
Oreo cookies chocolate cookiesor any flavored - Crushed
Gummies - for garnish (If you are concerned about gelatin in gummies, then I found Sour Patches is one brand that doesn't have any gelatin)
Wash the flower Pots/ Terracotta pots and dry them thoroughly. I covered the bottom with a plastic wrap because these pots have a tiny hole in the bottom. For completely edible pots use Ice cream wafer cones like these.
Cut a small piece of cake to fit in the bottom of the pot. Use your finger to squish it down a little bit.
Soften the ice cream on the counter or microwave for a few seconds to easily scoop into the pots. Add couple of tablespoons of ice cream on top of the cake.
Sprinkle with crushed oreos and place some gummies on top.
Keep these in the freezer for couple of hours and then serve.
I'm going to do the round up over the weekend. So if you can send me by Saturday May 18, I will include it in the round up.
