Ice Cream Cake needed

Hi everyone,
My fiance is an ice cream cake fanatic. So, I'd like to have custom made ice cream cakes for our wedding. Is there any place that does this besides Baskin Robbins or Cold Stone Creamery?

I'd like to shop locally if I can. The reception is in Piedmont, so someplace near there would be terrific.

Thanks much!

  1. Ici on College in Berkeley has Ice Cream Bombes, though I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for. They aren't cheap, but you can try there.

      The bombes at Ici are neither cheap, good looking or tasty. I had one for my birthday and was EXTREMELY disappointed. From Morton's description I'd go with Sketch. That's where I'll be getting my next ice cream cake.

    2. Safeway also makes ice cream cakes. Not sure if that's what you want...

      1. There is a Carvel's on Telegraph. You can get a Cookie Puss or Fudgy The Whale.

          Yeah, as much as I love Carvel's chcolate soft serve cone, the ice cream cake was better left a childhood memory.

        2. Just got an ice cream cake from Haagen Dazs. It was the best one I've had yet!!! They'll suggest vanilla, strawberry or chocolate, but you can always choose from any of their flavors. I picked coffee ice cream with a whipped cream frosting (highly recommended) in a heart shape and it was heavenly. You'll love it. And they have several ice cream stores throughout the country.

          1. Does Fentons do ice cream cakes?
