Noob version of Nagasaki-style icecream roses!

I stared creepily at the video, watching it over and over.

First attempt on back of a mug with a pie slicer... could see possibilities, but the icecream kept trying to slide off the mug back.

Second attempt on an icecream cone, with softened icecream and cake slicer - icecream was too soft, would not hold structural integrity, though the intentions could be seen.

This is my third attempt! Where the thing, while obviously crafted by an incompetent nugget, definitely has hints of where it COULD go...


Also has the interesting side-effect of giving the icecream a 'fluffier' mouthfeel. And, enthusiastically related by Nuggetboy (I prefer making icecream to eating it, so he has eating duties), 'Ooh this is great it goes all the way to the bottom of the cone!'

Someday, I really need to:

  1. Come up with better names for my icecreams
  2. Overcome my laziness and start documenting the insane number of different icecream flavours I make

...but today is not that day.

Today's lazy 'recipe' is instead, a bunch of links!

I got the idea from these two places…


…but of course, being me, I changed stuff a bit…

I didn’t use a brownie base, I used my own flourless chocolate cake base here

I was lazy for the cookie dough and used a Betty Crocker mix. You can of course, use your own nummy version!

I baked the thing for 40-50 minutes at 180C, non-fan-forced. Check on it often towards the last 10 minutes, because you don't want the cookie bits to overcook/burn.
