Baskin-Robbins Holiday Cakes

My shopping is done, woo-hooo!!!

Now it’s time to start planning Christmas dinner.

Ham is our traditional entree and there are always lots of cookies, but what about a special dessert?  *Trumpets blaring* In steps, BASKIN-ROBBINS and they have the perfect idea for a “WOW! Christmas Dessert” that will please everyone at your Christmas table.  Ice Cream Cake!  I’m humming, “we all scream for ice cream”….

Did you know Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops?  Here’s a trivia question, I got it wrong and I think the answer will surprise you, too. We all know BR advertised 31 flavors, but how many flavors of ice cream do you think they have created since 1945 when they were founded?  (answer at end of post)

Baskin-Robbins selection of holiday ice cream cakes makes it difficult to choose just one.  They each serve 8-12 people and I’m thinking of inviting more people over, just so I can order two.  Now, don’t judge!  And at Baskin-Robbins, you can customize your cake with the flavor of ice cream that you want, as well as choose between chocolate and white cake.

Our family had to try one for this post.  My husband was very reluctant, NOT, but since it was for the blog, he agreed *wink*.  I called ahead (recommended, and necessary for a custom ice cream/cake combo) and ordered a Santa design with chocolate cake and praline ice cream.  Yummmmmy!  There are three dome-cake designs to choose from:

  • Snowman Cake: Get into the holiday season with this holly jolly snowman cake, made with a layer of cake and any ice cream flavor.
  • Santa Cake: This treat will be the life of the party and can serve as the centerpiece for any holiday celebration.
  • Elf Cake: The Elf Cake is a delicious treat and like all the cakes, can be customized with a layer of cake and any of Baskin-Robbins’ ice cream flavors.

Our local Baskin-Robbins store was decked out for the holidays!  Fun decorations, lots of gift ideas and holiday treats!

We were very pleased with not only the flavor – after all it’s Baskin-Robbins! – but also with the appearance of the Santa Cake.  It’s adorable!  Santa’s beard was done exceptionally well.
