Ice cream is just delicious isn’t it? It is always a dessert that you can somehow squeeze in after a big meal, because it is so light and so yummy and you can serve it so many different ways and with so many different toppings. To celebrate all things ice cream, this Sunday 19th July, 2015, is National Ice Cream day – wooooo hoooo!
What better way to celebrate this day of eating ice cream, than to make an ice cream castle sundae! It is very easy to make and I think this is a really fun sharing dessert to eat with family or friends, and it is something which your children can decorate too.
So without any further ado, here is how to make an Ice Cream Castle Sundae
You will need:
1 clean, unused sandcastle bucket (or cake castle mould). Mine is 3 litres approx
3 litres of ice cream – I used Kelly’s Vanilla Cornish Dairy Ice Cream
Pour the ice cream into your mould/bucket and push down to ensure it goes into the turret cavities
Cover with cling film and put back into the freezer until you are ready to serve (at least 1 hour)
When you are ready to serve, empty the ice cream out of the bucket/mould s best you can. Allow the ice cream to be at room temperature for a couple of minutes and maybe run a knife around the edges to help release it
I dipped some ice cream cones in melted milk chocolate and covered them in some sprinkles to place on the turrets
With the cone turrets in place, I let the boys decorate their castle – we used marshmallows and chocolate drops
Once it is decorated, take a moment to appreciate your creation 🙂
Then you simply remove a turret cone, if you like, and scoop up some ice cream and make your own cones and decorate with a marshmallow and some chocolate drops
A perfect partner to accompany your ice cream cones is some new dessert sauces that Clarks have launched – I can highly recommend the tantalising toffee flavour!!!
Mmmmm! Ice cream Castle Sundaes are perfect for having some pudding fun with your friends or family this summer – and maybe every National Ice Cream Day!
Yummy! My two loved eating their cones!
Obviously, there was no way the 3 of us would eat all of that castle by ourselves, so all I did was put it back inside the empty ice cream tub and back in the freezer it went. It may not be a castle the next time I go to serve it, but it can be used for more cones or for bowls of ice cream.
Obviously, you could make your castle more elaborate – you could add biscuit crumbs to make sand, mini fruit kebab sticks as flags and so on. So what are you waiting for? Go create some ice cream fun!
I was sent the sauces, money for the ice cream, the bucket, the spade and a selection of toppings for the purpose of a review to help highlight National Ice Cream Day
