I’m always hesitant to buy an ice cream cake, because I think about how it would melt easily and how messy it is to handle.
Recently, I got a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake–which we brought to the welcome home party of my favorite sister-in-law–and BR addressed my concerns by packaging the cake well.
Here are some tips when you decide to buy a Baskin Robbin Ice Cream Cake for your next celebration…
BASKIN ROBBINS is America’s Favorite Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop, founded by brothers-in-law Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in 1945. The brand was last seen in Manila more than a decade ago but has now made a comeback. The timing couldn’t be more right because Manileños have been craving for better ice creams. 🙂

Did you know that more than 13 million ice cream cakes were sold in Baskin-Robbins shops worldwide in 2013?
Choose your size first, based on the estimated amount of people eating and on your budget.
Choose your flavor for the cake. We recommend the chocolate. You can have 2 flavors of ice cream in your cake, depending on the size.
Choose your design depending on the occasion and who you plan to give it to.
BR can pack the ice cream with dry ice underneath the ice cream so that it can last for 1 hour in transit. Also, the box has a nice see through design so that the recipient can appreciate it better.
We got the Dad’s Shirt Cake (Full Sheet) and it was more than enough for 12 people.
It was a bit hard to slice it at first. BR uses an imported US gel paste for decorating the cakes.
The ice cream portion is bigger than the cake base.
The chocolate cake is very dense, and a bit dry because it’s frozen.
The ice cream melts easily as you slice into it, so I recommend putting a container for the melted cream.
We had two flavors of ice cream–Green Tea and Cookies n’ Cream. 🙂 Make sure to order one flavor for the kids, and one flavor the adults would love.
