With the holidays right around the corner, it can be hard to cross everything off your list in time. With gift shopping, meal planning, decorating and sending out holiday cards, there are too many things to do and so little time. Here at Baskin-Robbins, we are getting ready for the festivities with our holiday ice cream cake lineup that makes it easy for guests to bring a winter wonderland feel to any holiday gathering.
New to the cake lineup this year is our Winter Wonderland Cake. This cake is decorated in beautiful icy blues, a White Dipping Chocolate drizzled edge, and topped with sparkling glitter. This cake is also customizable with guest’s favorite ice cream and cake flavors and serves 12-16 people.
To get the inside scoop on the latest culinary innovation, we spoke with Sara Cox, Research and Development Manager for Baskin-Robbins, who designed this sparkling masterpiece. The inspiration for this cake came from Sara identifying a need for a cake design that simply celebrates the winter season. Baskin-Robbins offers an expansive holiday ice cream cake lineup, which includes a Santa Cake, Snowman Cake, Elf Cake, and Chanukah Menorah Cake. The addition of the Winter Wonderland cake helped complete our holiday cakes lineup. To bring this cake to life she followed the drip cake trend and aimed to keep the design simple and elegant while incorporating standing rosettes made with butter crème to give the cake additional dimension.
We also have our seasonal favorite Fudge Yule Log Cake returning just in time for the holiday festivities. This cake combines Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and chocolate cake rolled together with white icing, then topped with holly leaf decorations and three red candles. When speaking with Sara about the inspiration behind this cake, she noted that it’s a Baskin-Robbins twist on a classic design that evokes nostalgia during the holiday season.
When putting these two ice cream cakes together, it creates an instant winter wonderland feel. You can dress up your tablescape as we have done in the above image by adding powdered sugar, candy canes and Christmas lights to your cake display.
Both cakes are available to order online at www.BaskinRobbins.com/onlineordering or in your local Baskin-Robbins shop. They can be customized with your favorite Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavor, including the December Flavor of The Month, YORK® Peppermint Pattie.
