Less than 6 month ago (on May 4th 2011) I started ‘Love Food Eat’ and posted my first recipe and today I am sharing my 100th post with you all!
When I started this blog I definitely didn’t think that it’ll come this far so soon! I had dreamt so much about my 100th post and first blog anniversary… But today sitting in front of my computer my mind is completely black!
All I want to say is that I love all of you, who read, comment, encourage and appreciate my blog. It’s been a lot of hard work and late nights and by the end of it all it’s good to know that there are people who actually enjoy my blog Every time I feel like I should slow down a little, one of your comments makes me want to blog more and better. All my fellow food-bloggers from all over the world are a HUGE source of inspiration! I have learnt so much about, food, photography, different cuisines, cultures and about life in general, that I just can’t thank you all enough!
I also would like to thank my family and friends. A BIG hug and thanks to my darling husband Ravindra for putting up with all my crazy food experiments and ‘obsessive blogging syndrome’! My daughter Alaru for growing up to be a great foodie and the best daughter in the whole world
Blogging is a lot more than just a hobby to me now. It made me fall in love with food all over again
An occasion like this deserves something sweet! I am celebrating it with the easy yet decadent dessert, Ice-cream cake!
I made this ice-cream cake a couple of weeks ago for the first time. I had some guests coming over for lunch and for dessert there was some chocolate brownie and ice-cream. I felt like it was just too boring but didn’t really have the energy to whip up something new. Then suddenly I remembered an ice-cream cake that Nigella Lawson had made in her TV show years ago! I didn’t remember what really went into it but I remembered it being super simple and looking absolutely great! My first ice-cream cake was vanilla ice-cream mixed with my leftover brownies and some crumbled digestive biscuits. I know it doesn’t sound fancy by it sure looked amazing! My guests loved it
Today once again I am low on energy and time so couldn’t really bake an elaborate cake or any other time consuming dessert but that doesn’t stop me from sharing something sweet with you all! I am making the simple and sinful ice-cream cake, choco-vanilla with raisins soaked in rum! To make it even more special I served this piece of heaven with Bailey’s Irish cream! It’s far from healthy but don’t we all deserve to indulge once in awhile
It’s simply ice-cream shaped like a cake… but it looks amazing and tastes simply YUM!
Make this when you want to amaze your guests with a delightful dessert which took you only 5 minutes to put together! I already have a zillion different flavor combos in mind

- 500 ml of your favorite vanilla ice-cream
- 1 pack of Oreo biscuits
- ½ cup of raisin which was soaked in rum for a couple of days
- ½ cup of leftover chocolate fudge/brownie/cake
- Chocolate shavings
Making a dessert can’t be simpler! Keep the ice-cream in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes for it to soften a bit. Crumble the Oreo biscuits and the chocolate fudge into small pieces.
Combine all the ingredients with the vanilla ice-cream. Pour it into a round cake pan and freeze it. Make sure it has a removable base so that it’s easy to get the cake out of the tin.
I decorated the cake with chocolate shavings and served it with a generous drizzle of Irish cream.
