Selecta Ice Cream invited a handful of bloggers to visit their ice cream plant in Pasig last May. I was like a kid upon seeing the place where ice cream is made! Everything was pretty and sweet heehee. Anyway, soon after the tour we had a chance to make our own ice cream cake. Hoooraaay!
Love this mural. Hand prints of those that had been part of Selecta over the years.
Each of us had a Pyrex (glass container), stainless steel spatula, a tub of Selecta Super Thick Trio Ice Cream (chocolate, matekado and mango) and two packs of Graham crackers. Now, let’s make some ice cream cake!
Look at the lovely candy buffet! So Pinterest worthy! I know you want to, pin it! Pin it! 😉
Here’s Gabbie with Basti, the gwapito of Eli of Painter’s Wife.
Here’s how my lil’ Ms. GJG did it.
Step 1: Arrange the graham crackers in the container.
Step 2: Scoop and flatten an ample amount of Selecta thick ice cream (your choice of flavor)
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 & 2 alternating the ice cream flavors.
Step 4: Sprinkle it with your favorite treats.
Refrigerate overnight so it’ll be ready to serve the next day.
I asked Gabbie to pick out the treats that she wanted to sprinkle on our ice cream cake and here are her choices. Gummy bears, cereal fruit balls, mango, strawberry, kiwi, marshmallow, chocolates and candy sprinkles.
Here’s her ice cream cake accentuated with a strawberry wafer stick.
We did get to enjoy a slice of Selecta ice cream cake (which we didn’t make but is equally yummy!) Look at how pretty it is, I just had to take a photo before I devoured it! Heehee.
While Gabbie & I were busy, my gwapito was entertained by no-less than pretty mom Amanda Griffin, whom I met a few times now. A year ago we were both pregnant with our second child and now here we are with almost a year old kids! My lil’Mr. GJG sure like pretty girls.
Thank you Selecta for the treat. So excited to make our own ice cream cake here at home. It’s a perfect activity with your kids ha. What better way to spend time with them than to have fun that involves ice cream? Sweet!
