There were some problems. I tried to spread the ice "cream" into a springform pan with the ridiculous idea that it would slip easily out of this pan and I could simpy flip it over revealing a perfectly circular cake from which would then just need a few decorative elements. Um...no dice. Ice cream stuck pitifully to the pan so I just added some chocolate suace to the top and crushed up some peanuts. Everyone was (relatively) happy.
Here is how you too can make a Carvel-ish cake/pie/whatever for your vegan loved one:
Tofutti Carvel-ish Cake
- 2 tubs vanilla Tofutti ice cream
- 2 tubs chocolate Tofutti ice cream
- 1-1 1/2 cup crushed vegan chocolate cookies (I use Mi-Del Chocolate Snaps)
- decorative elements-frosting, chocolate sauce, nuts, etc. (This is all you, I can only take you so far)
