    westivan's Note:

    Chocolate freckles are a very popular candy of small chocolate discs covered in hundreds and thousands (round sprinkles). This cake looks like a giant freckle, with layers of chocolate ice cream, sponge finger biscuits and vanilla ice cream in the middle. Would make a great kid's birthday cake, and you can make it up to 4 weeks ahead of needing it. Cooking time is freezing time, prep time is approx. From Super Food Ideas Dec 2005. NB 1 cup = 250ml

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 liters vanilla ice cream (Streets Blue Ribbon re-freezes well)
    • 200 g butter, softened
    • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
    • 4 eggs, room temp
    • 400 g dark chocolate, chopped (make sure it's good quality)
    • 1/2 cup thickened cream
    • 250 g ladyfingers (sponge finger biscuits, Zaar defaults to ladyfinger)
    • 2 (175 g) packets hundreds and thousands

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove ice cream from freezer and stand for 10-15 minutes. Ice cream should be just softened but not melted.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until pale. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mixture may curdle but that's ok :-).
    3. 3
      Combine chocolate and cream in a bowl and microwave, stirring every minute, until melted and smooth. Add to butter mixture and beat until smooth.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle 1 packet of hundreds and thousands over base of a line springform cake pan (7.5 x 25cm base). Carefully spoon over half the chocolate mixture so as not to disturb the sprinkles.
    5. 5
      Cut biscuits in half lengthways to make 2 thin, flat fingers. Arrange in a single layer to cover chocolate mixture, trimming if necessary. The easiest way to do this is to lay them pointing from the edge towards the centre, and then fill the centre with smaller bits (great if some of them broke while being halved).
    6. 6
      Spoon vanilla ice cream over biscuits. Press another layer of biscuits into surface of ice cream and pour over remaining chocolate mixture. Sprinkle with remaining hundreds and thousands.
    7. 7
      Cover tightly with plastic wrap and foil and freeze overnight or up to 4 weeks. Remove from pan and serve.
