Yesterday was Mike’s 35th birthday and when I asked what kind of cake he wanted he told me he wanted a Bubble Crown Cake like he got when he was little.
I had never heard or seen this kind of cake, except for a photo of Mike at his 2nd Birthday.
So I did some searching and found out that is was originally a Betty Crocker ice cream cake.
Fudge Ripple instead)
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and pull the ice cream out of the freezer so it’s soft enough when you’re ready to assemble
Step 2: In a medium size pot bring water and butter to a rolling boil
Step 3: Take the pot off the burner and add all the flour and start stirring
Step 4: The dough should become pretty solid and form a ball
Step 5: Add each egg one at a time until the dough is creamy and velvety!
Step 6: Drop balls the size of a teaspoon onto an non greased cookie sheet (I used a silpat and it’s the best thing ever!)
Step 7: Bake for 15 minutes and until they rise to look like delicious puffs
Step8 : Let them cool before you assemble the cake
Step 9: I did a bottom layer of chocolate syrup (but would probably skip this the next time I make it)
Step 10: I add a layer of puffs
Step 11: Layer of Mint ice cream
Step 12: Layer of chocolate syrup
Step 13: Layer of puffs
Step 14: Layer of fudge ripple ice cream
Step 15: Layer of puffs
Step 16: Layer of chocolate syrup
Step 17: Place in the freezer for 8-12 hours
When you’re ready to eat the cake pull it our and let it sit for 2-3 minutes then take a spatula to help ease it out of the pan. Keep the pan close by you’ll need it to put the cake back in the freezer. If you want you can add another layer of chocolate syrup, you know because we haven’t added enough already!
Mike said it was just like he remembered, the puffs were hard and frozen and the ice cream was soupy and the chocolate was delicious. He felt like a kid and what’s better then feeling young on your birthday? Nothing. Happy Birthday Mike!
Did you grow up getting a Sundae Bubble Crown Cake? I would love to hear what ice cream combos you would use!!
