Step 1: Tools and Ingredients

Picture of Tools and Ingredients
1 package puff pastry
~ 2 quarts strawberry ice cream
handful fresh strawberries 
strawberry jam (optional)

baking sheet
aluminum foil
waxed paper or parchment paper
rolling pin (optional)
knife (optional)
straw (optional)
oven-proof head-shaped base (I used a plaster cast of scoochmaroo's face, but you could also use wadded-up paper and/or foil balls, the underside of a face-shaped cake pan, or anything roughly oval (a squash, a bowl) with a nose-shape attached.)

What a brilliant idea!!! Love the eyes!

Fabulously creepy looking, and excellent step-by step instructions. I know everyone is using the same adjective, but creepy fits better than anything.

As a bonus, it also looks delicious.

Thank you! And creepy is definitely a compliment. :)

I've never looked so good! So at what point was it that my head cracked in half?
canida (author)  scoochmaroo2 years ago
I don't know if it was upon heating or cooling - the aluminum foil hid the crack until I unwrapped it!

Thanks again for donating your head. :D
That is so creepy! BTW, your face looks delicious. LOL!

Creepy... but technically-speaking... this is more of a pie than a cake.

Just sayin'. ;-)

You make a good point - I hadn't thought about it that way! It really is a double-crust pie. :)
