Ice Cream Cake Help

jenhen2 | Nov 28, 2007 08:11 AM

I am hoping you guys might have some input on this:

I am making an ice cream cake for a dinner party on Saturday. I am planning to make chocolate layer cake (favoriate recipe anyone?) and then I want the ice cream to be peppermint. Since I can't find that in the store, I bought vanilla and will add extract and crushed candies.

For the frosting, I was thinking 7-minute frosting to make it kind of like marshmallow which I thought would be good and which I like better than whipped cream. The problem: I have NO idea how the frosting will taste frozen and I don't want to frost it in front of my guests before serving (my kitchen is open to the dining room). Any thoughts / ideas on this would be very helpful. The dinner is Saturday.
