So it was my little cousin’s 16th birthday last Monday.
If there’s two things he loves, they are ice cream and oreo cookie crusts.
I know what y’all are thinking. That sounds delicious.
…and what better way to fuse these two things, than to make a cake?
So here’s the deal. This level of perfection could be better obtained by working with a friend! If possible, grab a few friends. In my case I happened to have a baking extraordinaire/SHSL* artist with me. She and my cousin are also kinda my OTP.
Anyways, we made a cake.
Sorry that the picture’s a little blurry! I have no excuse. But you have to admit, it still looks pretty good.
Since it’s an ice cream cake, there really isn’t any baking at all. However, there are a lot of layers. The bottom is an oreo crust. Then, there is a layer of ice cream. On top of that is a layer of mocha whipped cream. Finally, there is a topping of solid chocolate. The sides have chocolate triangles, more chocolate and fruit, respectively. So healthy, I know. Although it seems rather complicated, the cake itself is actually quite easy to make.
The ingredients that you will need are:
- 24 Oreos
- ¼ cup butter
Ice cream layer:
- One box of ice cream of your choice- I chose cookie dough
Mocha Whipped cream layer:
- 1½ teaspoons instant coffee - 2 teaspoons boiling water - ¼ cups semisweet chocolate chips - 1 cup heavy cream - 2 tablespoons sugar
Ingredients for top of cake:
- ½ + ½ + ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
- Cut, assorted fruit of your choice- I chose raspberries, kiwi, peaches, and green grapes
How you do this crazy alchemy without the direction of a baking extraordinaire/ SHSL* artist:
Go get an 8x8 inch square pan. A circular pan with a diameter of 8 should do just fine too. Line the bottom of your pan with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
Let’s start with the Oreo crust!
1.) Get yourself a medium-sized bowl, and dump the oreos into it.
2.) Use your hands or a potato masher to mash those disks of deliciousness into dust. Yes, keep the filling in there. When the cookie pieces are crushed to the point at which they resemble dirt, then you have done your job well.
3.) Now melt the butter in the microwave, pour it over the crushed cookies, and mix well until the cookie bits just barely stick together.
4.) Press this mixture into the bottom of your pan, so it forms a sort of crust at the base.
5.) Freeze for at least 15 minutes.
Time for the ice cream!
1.) Take the oreo crust out of the freezer.
2.) Dump that whole box of ice cream onto the oreo crust.
3.) Spread the ice cream out evenly over the crust.
4.) Cover with cling wrap and freeze overnight.
Here comes the mocha whipped cream:
1.) Put the heavy cream in a medium-sized bowl. Use a whisk or electric mixer to whip it up to soft peaks.
2.) Put the sugar into the whipped cream.
3.) Whip the cream some more until it reaches stiff peaks.
4.) Dissolve the instant coffee in the water.
5.) Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. You can do this by putting them in a bowl, and timing the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, even if it doesn’t look like the chocolate chips have melted at all. Repeat this process until the chocolate is fully melted.
6.) Fold the coffee paste into the whipped cream until the color is homogeneous.
7.) Fold the melted chocolate into the coffee whipped cream until it is fully incorporated and the color is homogeneous.
After the previous two layers have been frozen overnight, use a pastry bag with a star tip to pipe a layer of this mocha whipped cream on top of the ice cream layer. Freeze for at least an hour.
Now comes the hardest part: The chocolate accents. We need to make the large chocolate square on the top, the chocolate circle and semicircles on top, and the chocolate triangles on the sides.
Let’s start with the large chocolate square at the top.
1.) Line a cookie sheet at least as big as your cake with parchment paper, but small enough to fit in your freezer. You can do this while the rest of the cake is freezing.
2.) Melt the ½ cup of chocolate chips, just as you did for the whipped cream. Then pour it out onto the parchment paper.
3.) Spread the chocolate evenly, about ⅛ inch thick with a butter knife. Make sure that the layer of chocolate is at least as big as your cake. It doesn’t matter what shape it is.
4.) Put the parchment paper with the melted chocolate on it onto the baking tray. Freeze for 4 minutes.
5.) Now, take a tall glass and microwave it on HIGH for one minute.
6.) Take the baking tray out of the freezer. The chocolate should have hardened a little.
7.) Take a big knife, and put it into the hot water for 30 seconds. Take the knife out, and dry it with a paper towel.
8.) Cut the chocolate, with this knife, into the size and shape of your cake pan.
9.) Put the chocolate back into the freezer for another 15 minutes.
Now, let’s move on to the chocolate semicircles and circles on top.
1.) Repeat steps 1-7 from the method of making the large chocolate square.
2.) Take a bowl, and invert it on top of the chocolate.
3.) Take the knife, and cut around the bowl, so you are cutting a circle out of the chocolate.
4.) Take the bowl off of the chocolate, and place a smaller bowl in the middle of the circle that you just cut out.
5.) Take the knife, and cut around the bowl, so you are cutting a circle out of the other chocolate circle.
6.) Cut the circle in the middle in half.
7.) Cut the outer ring ¾ of the way down the diameter.
8.) Put the chocolate back into the freezer for another 15 minutes.
Let’s do the chocolate triangles on the sides, now!
1.) Repeat steps 1-7 from the method of making the large chocolate square, except melt ¼ cup of white chocolate and ¼ cup of semisweet chocolate, and spread them out on the parchment paper together.
2.) Cut the chocolate, with this knife, such that you can cut 9 2x2 inch squares.
3.) Dip the knife in the water again, and dry it off with a paper towel.
4.) Cut each of these squares diagonally to form right triangles.
5.) Put the chocolate back into the freezer for another 15 minutes.
You’ve gotten this far! I’m so proud of you ^.^
Now, we’ll do some assembly and finishing touches :)
1.) Melt the remaining white chocolate.
2.) Put it into a sandwich ziplock bag. Cut one of the corners off.
3.) Take the circular chocolate pieces out of the freezer and decorate them with the white chocolate, using the ziplock bag as a piping bag. Do not set this white chocolate bag aside.
4.) Take the cake out of the freezer. Take it out of the pan, and put it on a serving plate, removing the parchment/wax paper.
5.) Top the cake with the large chocolate square.
6.) Near a corner of the cake, place two of the chocolate triangles slightly less than the diameter of your ring of chocolate apart. The triangles should be upright, and the slanted side should be facing the middle of the cake.
7.) Hold the chocolate in place, by piping some of the white chocolate on the bottom edge of each of the two triangles, then putting it on the cake. If you need extra support, put some fruit beside the triangles.
8.) Rest the decorated chocolate ring on top of the triangle supports, gluing it with chocolate to the supports if needed.
9.) Arrange the the semi circles of chocolate on top of the cake as shown in the picture.
10.) Arrange your fruit on top as you would like.
11.) Place the remaining chocolate triangles around the sides of the cake.
You are finished! Now, take a giant bite out of this delicious thing! ^.^
Feel free to send me asks if anything is confusing, you would like pictures to assist you in making this, or if you just want to talk or comment. Thanks for baking with me!
My amazing Wonder Twin Ally made me a cake for my 16th birthday and it is Cake Boss worthy!
Knowing my love of Kiera Cass’ bestselling series, The Selection, she made me a cake designed to look like the first two books in the series (The Selection and The Elite).
On top of the cake, she styled the fondant to look like the dresses and even added little book mark ribbons on the sides! (You’re adorable Ally, I love this!)
Above all, it was this small note that absolutely threw me over the edge. This sweet message has left me fangirling ever since I saw it, and it has now taken up residence on my desk (and will stay there FOREVER!).
Thank you so much and I love you more than America loves strawberry tarts! You’re the best, Wonder Twin!
Thrilled to have made this Sleeping Beauty sculpted first birthday cake for the first little one of the couple who happened to be my very first wedding cake clients, Lee and Shelly in Pikeville, Kentucky :) This cake took lots of planning and it replicated the scene in the movie where the fairies are trying to make Aurora’s 16th birthday very special. This is the cake Fauna made BEFORE she resorted to magic :) ” It’ll be much stiffer after it bakes!” I hope that Justice Aurora’s first birthday was just as magical.
“But she’s never cooked.” “Oh it’s simple!” “All you do is follow the book!”
“Well, it’s a very… unusual cake, isn’t it?”
“Of course it will be much stiffer after it’s baked…”
on my 16th birthday my mom asked what kind of cake i wanted and i couldnt think of anything so i showed her that one deviantart smiley face and was like “do this” thinking she would be all “no think of something else im not doing that its too simple” but then she actually made it
As I mentioned before, birthdays aren’t much of an event for me anymore. I’m not much of a physical gift type person and having no family nearby makes for eating a lot of cake by myself.
I’m not comfortable asking things of people but I also realize that if I want something no one will know if I don’t ask. So here it goes:
For my birthday, the 16th, while I am not going to be around for that day, I would love to come back to see people showing their support for my webcomic in whatever avenues they can. My stories are going to be what I leave behind after it’s all said and done, and while I never expect any kind of universal popularity, I want my stories to find their way to all the people who need and want to hear them.
That is my birthday wish for this year, and I will be eternally grateful if you will help me along the way.

you made yourself comfortable on your couch with a cup of hot chocolate and
some photo albums of your boyfriend Rami. You loved to look at his baby photos,
he was soo cute as a baby, and you really liked his childhood photos as well. There
were a few you smiled about, for example when his face was covered with cake on
his 16th birthday. Poor Rami, you always thought. You took a sip from your hot chocolate, leaned back
and enjoyed watching your boyfriend’s memories.
After a few
albums, you found a photo that almost made you spit your hot chocolate on your
carpet. You never saw it before, although you had looked at the albums so many
times. Either you always overlooked that picture, which is quite impossible or Rami
had tried to hide it from you. The second option was more likely. He probably thought
you wouldn’t touch his albums anymore, because you saw all his photos.
On the photo,
he was posing on a bed, naked and only a cloth was covering his private area. As
if it was not enough, he was wearing a black tie around his neck and grinned seductively
into the camera. Damn, you thought. He was very hot on that photo. But you felt
also suspicious and a little bit jealous. Who might have taken this picture? A
photograph? A girl? Maybe himself? It didn’t look like it had been taken in a
you stared at him, the more you were turned on. You already felt your wetness
between your legs. God, he was so damn hot. How dare he torturing you like
that? Ok, it wasn’t really his fault, he had no idea anyway. Slowly, you became
frustrated and a sort of feeling spread inside of you.
feeling that ate you up inside every time you felt it and made you insane.
Unfortunately, Rami wasn’t home yet. You needed relief. As soon as possible. So,
you could foresee how the night was definitely going to end.
another hours, trying to distract yourself, but the feeling became more painful
the longer it took Rami to come back home. You did everything: watching movies,
surfing the net, reading books. But he wasn’t still home yet. God, you wanted
him now! “Where are you, Rami?” You mumbled.
the front door was being unlocked and your boyfriend stepped into the
apartment. He was holding a bouquet of roses in his one hand in the other hand
he was carrying a plastic bag full of groceries. So, that’s why he was so late.
home.” He shouted. Then he went to the kitchen to lay the bag and the bouquet on
the counter and after that he came to the living room, where you had already
waited for him. A wide grin was plastered on your face and as Rami saw you, he
looked at you questioningly. “What?” He asked confused. You just shook your
head, laughing about the cluelessness of your poor boyfriend. You stood up from
your place and went towards him. As you approached him, you wrapped your arms
around his neck, pulling him close to your body.
You said with a singing voice. “Where have you been? I missed you so, so much?”
Slowly, you plastered hungry kisses along his neck. He was bewildered.
Normally, you were not affectionate. Unless, it was about sex. He slightly
pushed you away from him. “Are you alright?” He asked. “Yeah, I’m just in the
mood, y’know.” You answered. He offered you a gentle laugh. “Is that so? And why
if I may ask.” You shrugged your shoulders. “Hmm, maybe I’m turned on by a
turned red within seconds. He was comparable to a tomato. Even his ears took a
shade of red. He knew very well which photo you meant. You laughed at him, burying
your face in the crook of his neck. He was so cute when he was ashamed. “You
saw it?” He whispered. “Yes.” You said. “And it’s hot.” “Nah, more embarrassing
if you ask me.” You laughed again, while
rubbing his chest. “Yeah, sure.” And then you roughly crushed your lips against his. His tongue
entered your mouth and you both fought for dominance. Meanwhile, your hand slid
under his shirt, stroking his well-toned belly. His muscles tensed under your
touch and you smirked into the kiss. A slight moan escaped from his lips as you
rubbed yourself against him. “Upstairs! Now!” You whispered seductively in his
ear as you both pulled away to breathe. He nodded and a few minutes later you found yourself in your bedroom.
you down onto the bed and climbed on top of you. His lust-filled eyes stared at
your beautiful ones. “I love you, (Y/N).” He said. “I love you, too.”
He let his
hands slid down your chest and slowly began to undress you, leaving you in your underwear. You did
the same by unbuckling his pants and slipping them down his legs. You saw the
outline of his erection in his boxers and carefully cupped it with your hand. He
hissed at your touch, a low groan escaped from his already plump lips. He pulled
his shirt over his head so you had a look on his muscular chest. Licking you
lips, you unclasped your bra, your nipples shivered at the sudden cold air and
hardened. Rami glided his hand over your stomach, while kissing and sucking on
your sweet spot, leaving hickeys on your skin. You gasped as he cupped your
heat and his fingers teased your entrance through your panties.

giggled at your impatience. “So no foreplay this time?” He asked. “No please, I
want you inside me!” He saluted
jokingly. “As you wish, m’lady.”
positioned himself between your legs and pulled out his length. He stroked
himself a few times before he slid himself into you, filling you completely. You
arched your back, a deep groan escaping your lips. “Are you ok, Baby?” He
inquired. He gave you time to adjust to his size. You just nodded your head, digging
your nails into his olive skin. “Move, please!”
down to kiss your lips and started to thrust slowly into you. You held tightly
on his waist, helping him to push deeper and to hit the spot you were craving for.
You closed your eyes, enjoying this intimate moment between you and your
boyfriend. Your whole body burned like fire and your breath became uneven. His thrusts
became faster and harder as he quickened his pace. You let out a little cry and
bucked your hips to meet his. “Feels so good.” He moaned against your lips.
He cupped your breast, giving it a gentle
squeeze. He licked and sucked at your nipple that sent jolts through your whole
body. Still thrusting, he then used his thumb to rub your clit, giving you
twice as much pleasure. Rami stared intensively at you and couldn’t stop himself
from groaning as he felt you clench around him. Panting, you slowly could feel
something build up in your stomach. You saw the stars as he hit your special
spot again and it needed him a few more thrusts and rubbing your clit before your
screamed his name as you came, finally finding relief. Rami thrust you through
your orgasm before he released himself in your core. He grunted your name, then
collapsed onto you, his head resting on your breasts. Your heart was beating
heavily against your chest and you tried to keep your ragged breath down.
his arms around you, pressing your sweaty bodies together. Your hands went through
his hair, stroking his soft curls. He gave a kiss between your breasts before
smiling lovingly at you.

at his statement, but you tried to hide your blushing. “You were amazing too,
“What did I do to deserve this?” He yawned, his
limbs slowly fell down from the exhaustion. You kissed his head. “Well, if you
keep doing photos like that, you’ll deserve it more often.”
