Hokey Pokey Ice Cream Cake

The Ref loves hokey pokey ice cream so when I spotted a Hokey Pokey ice cream cake I had to make it. It was in one of my favourite cake decorating books – Kiwiana Party Cakes.

My first problem was finding ice cream wafer biscuits. I couldn’t find them so I grabbed wafer slices. They Kiwiana Party Cakesare a pale pink so don’t contrast as much with the white icing as the bright pink of wafer biscuits. Next problem is the wafer absorbs moisture from the icing and expands. The slices have 3 layers of wafers with icing in between. The wafer nearest the cake expands and the icing and other wafers peal off the cake! It was still yummy and The Ref nicked all the crunchie bits used to replicate hokey pokey! It was his birthday after all!!

I didn’t have enough wafer slices (needed two packets of biscuits) and you can see the icing left when the rest of the slice peeled off!
