Best ice cream cakes in nyc?

Can anyone recommend a good place for ice cream cakes? Mary's Dairy in the Village used to make excellent ones but, sadly, it's now closed. Thanks!

  1. You really cant beat Baskin Robbins for an ice cream cake.

    1. The Cake Batter Confetti cake at Cold Stone is actually pretty fantastic.Red velvet slices with cake batter ice cream and chocolate bars. I've wanted to try the Cookie Dough Delirium, but officemates just can't say no to red velvet.

      2. When it comes to ice cream cakes, I say go old school. You can't miss with a good ol' fudgie the whale cake at Carvel.

          1. Definitely Cold Stone. Confetti cake is awesome, mint chip, and cheesecake are close seconds

              1. I am going to go with my usual pick: gelato cake at L'Arte Del Gelato

                  I've only had there gelato. Whateare their cakes like?

                  1. re: misnatalie

                    Their gelato cake is entire made with gelato without any real cake. I had the one with mascapone gelato because I found their mascapone flavor to be the best among all the ones I have tried in other places. I thought i was extremely delicious! And very pretty too!

                    I actually prefer gelato cake to have no actual cake inside as I often found them to be too dry when compared to the luscious ice cream. That's just my personal preference.

                      They are very pretty. Now that the summer is coming I will have to try one soon. Thanks.

                        Don't the all ice cream ones turn into a puddle though?

                  2. Has anyone tried an ice cream cake from Cones? Is it better than L'Arte Del Gelato?
