Maple Walnut Frozen Yogurt Cake

This cake is just as easy as it is impressive. Candied walnuts, Canadian Maple syrup and mouthwatering Three of a Kind Vanilla frozen yogurt are three secret ingredients that turn this simple recipe into a stunner.


  • 9 or 10-inch springform cake pan
  • 9-inch standard cake pan
  • Parchment paper

Ice Cream Cake Tips:

  • Whenever possible it is best to form the layers of ice cream and ingredients the night before, to ensure your cake looks its best!
  • If you’re in a rush, you can always pick up dry ice in a cooler to freeze your ice cream in minutes instead of hours.
  • A pastry torch helps get the ice cream out of any pan/mold, but if you don’t have one, use a hairdryer.

Most of the ingredients and equipment for this recipe can be found in Bulk Barn stores across Canada.
