  • Oh my hat! Can’t wait to see it Hein. I’m afraid ice cream is an all too frequent visitor around here. Ice cream anything is in. All the best. D

  • Gilly! At last a cake that isn’t baked. You can definitely gives this one a go with your eyes closed. D x

  • Wow Di, what a showstopper! Great inspiration for an ice-cream birthday cake for Meagan. Thank you

  • Pleasure Ilze. It’s definitely a low-fuss birthday cake option and one that’ll be completely polished!

  • What a pretty ice cream cake! The peppermint flavor sounds divine 🙂

  • It’s worth ditching the sugar-free regime for.

  • This looks divine, new to the kitchen and baking world, could you please tell me where I can purchase vanilla paste and which brand is the best to use? or if there are any substitutes?


  • Hi Didi. This ice cream cake is a good place to start. It’s simple and utterly delicious. You can get the paste in the baking isle of most supermarkets. Woolies and Pick n Pay always stock paste and extract. Alternatively, you can buy vanilla pods at baking supply shops and scrape out the soft centred seed paste – intensely fragrant! Good luck.

  • How much ice cream for the peppermint crisp ice cream pudding cake do we need to use?

  • Hello Mary anne. This recipe doesn’t make use of store-bought ice cream. The ice cream is made by whisking together the cream, caramel and vanilla. No churning is necessary for this super-creamy homemade version.

  • Sent mom this recipe a week or so ago and she made it for my brother’s bday. A divine ice cream cake! And so easy to make. It also looks stunning 🙂 Thanks Di!

  • Definitely one of the best no-churn ice creams for summer, especially if peppermint crisp pudding was a childhood favourite.

  • I’ve made your peppermint crisp ice cream pudding previously and it was amazing! Unfortunately now the Food24 link is not correctly accessing the recipe. Is there another way for me to get hold of the recipe again? Thanks so much

  • Hello Linda. My apologies for the late reply. I know they’ve been updating the site. I think it’s all sorted. Here is the link to follow. Hope you had a wonderful Heritage Weekend. Best Regards Di
