Chocolate Banded Ice Cream Torte
Today is Pete's birthday! When he was little, he often requested an ice cream cake for his summer birthday celebration. This year I made Dorie's Chocolate Banded Ice Cream Torte. Dorie says that it's not that hard to make (she's right), and doesn't take much time (she's right) but that there's a lot of waiting time in between steps (she's right!). Once you make the chocolate cream and the raspberry ice cream, you spread on a layer and then have to firm it up in the freezer before adding the next layer. After the five layers are done, you must freeze the whole thing for 6 hours! I made this yesterday and we enjoyed it today. Very yummy! And very tempting to make it again and play around with different flavors of ice cream. Even two different ice creams. And decorations on the top. The possibilities are endless!
