So many components to this dessert! Two ice creams, hot fudge sauce, chocolate cake, whipped cream…and then there’s the assembly process. Whew! When I told Ben all the things I had to do, he said “Can you imagine having to do this when you were still teaching?” Yes, I can imagine that. I would have freaked out. Probably like this scene from Julie & Julia.
Thankfully I saved myself, and Ben, from this potential freak out by spreading everything out over 5 days and having this thing ready to enjoy 3 days before the Daring Bakers reveal. Having a lot of free time is such a luxury.
The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s world – life and food. Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make a bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream cake recipe from Taste of Home.
I must confess right now that I cannot attest to how good this ice cream treat is at present. I haven’t yet cut into this impressive dessert and tasted it. It is sitting in my freezer just waiting for me…calling to me, really. I’m saving it for our 4th anniversary this Thursday. I’ll make sure to amend this post once I get to try a slice as we celebrate 4 years of marital bliss!
