Sea Turtle Ice Cream Cake

Scoops of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream form the shell of this cool sea turtle. Peeking out through white candy eyes (with chocolate pupils) and flashing a black-licorice grin, this is one turtle who is not too shy to come to the party. For the decorating technique, see our step-by-step photos.

Cook's Notes

To make a baby sea turtle, use a single large scoop of mint-chip ice cream for a shell. Use a smaller ice-cream scoop for his chocolate ice-cream head (use the scoop to carve a niche to set it in). Tuck brown candy-coated chocolates underneath for feet and a tail, and add candy features like Dad's.
