Chocolate Mint Cake

Say hello to this Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream Cake. Not many people share a love for chocolate and mint. But when they do, they fall hard. A good chocolate mint combination goes beyond giving you that peppermint toothpaste aftertaste. Maybe that’s why some people dislike the idea of combining mint with any dessert because they usually associate them with toothpaste!

I won’t deny that some desserts I tried in the past gave me this feeling – that I actually ate toothpaste ( Opps. That’s quite bad isn’t it.). I guess there’s always a right balance of how much mint to put in your dessert. We once played an April’s fool prank on our friend and yup we used mint in it. Ever heard of mint oreo cookies? They taste so yummy in their actual form. But what my friend didn’t know was that we replaced the mint cream with toothpaste and she actually popped the entire thing into her mouth. Uh oh.

Chocolate cake

I usually get inspirations for desserts from social media or family and friends. This time round, my friend suggested I do a mint chocolate oreo cake and so dreams do come true ( You certainly got what you wish for). Base cake is a chocolate fudge cake, filling is mint chocolate chip cream cheese with some oreo crumbs. If you’re not a fan of mint, do check out my range of chocolate desserts (I swear they are so good). This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake will sweep you off your feet I promise.

Oh btw if any of you are wondering, this is Not an ice cream cake! It’s just me trying to utilize every single crumb of cake. Anyway for all those who thought it was an ice cream cake, I am truly honored because that was my main intention. Ok, to cut the story short, I’m going to show u what I did with my excess cake ( the dome part of the cake that has been trimmed off to obtain even layers of cake)

How to make this Chocolate Chip Mint Cake

1) First when you make your cake, divide them into 3 cake tins so you get 3 cake layers. When they come out of the oven, they are usually slightly dome on the top. Slice off the dome top and set aside ( This is going to form the “ice cream scoop” on the cake )

2) Prepare the mix ins for the cream cheese. Clockwise from top left: After Mint pieces chopped, Roughly chopped dark chocolate, fine oreo cookies, chunkier oreo cookies

3) Pour the mix ins into the cream cheese. Add a little green gel to get that minty color.

4) Place one layer of cake on the cake board and spread one layer of the cream cheese. Top with another layer of cake and cream cheese. And then your last layer of cake

Making the “Ice Cream Scoop” on top of the Mint Cake

5) Frost the entire cake with mint cream cheese and refrigerate until set. I usually blast chill it in the freezer for 10mins. But if you are busy with other stuff, you can just put the cake in the refrigerator to set 1 hr while you do your daily chores.

6) Prepare chocolate ganache and pour on top of chilled cake and down the sides to form drizzle.

7) Crumble left over dome cake that you set aside

8) Mix in a little cream cheese to hold it together and roll into a ball.

9) Place ball on top of cake

10) Frost ball with left over mint cream cheese and place an ice cream cone on top

11) ENJOY!

And there you have it! Less cake wastage.
