Cover and freeze for another 30 minutes while you soften the Strawberry Ice Cream. Remove bowl and wrap. Fill bowl with the Strawberry Ice Cream, cover and freeze hard.

Bake you favorite recipe for chocolate cake and place batter in two round cake pans or one round cake pan + one pan of cupcakes. Bake accordingly. Cool cake for 10 minutes, flip over onto a cooling rack until completely cooled. Place round cake onto a plate. Remove ice cream bowl from freezer. Turn upside down and run warm water over the bowl until the ice cream slips out of the bowl. Place ice cream onto the cake. Remove plastic wrap. Trim cake so it lines up with the ice cream. Cover the ice cream cake with meringue (see below). You may torch the meringue or bake it at 500 degrees until peaks are golden (optional). Freeze until firm. Set out for 10 minutes before serving.

Meringue

  • 1 c. egg whites, (6 large eggs), room temperature
  • 1/2 t. cream of tartar
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla

Whip egg whites and cream of tartar with a mixer until foamy. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar while continuing to whip until stiff peaks form. Cover the ice cream cake with meringue. Bounce the back of a spoon along meringue to make small peaks on cake.
(Egg yolks may be used to make homemade noodles or Crème Brûlée...)
