Ice cream cheesecake
Last year, we ordered Swensen Ice-Cream Cake for hubby for his birthday. He only like the football design one which is 2kg, as we didnt have so many people to help finish his "football" cake this year, i decided to make him a small ice cream cake instead...Luckily he says it is nice.. of course, i wouldnt ask him how is the taste compared to Swensen.. hehe...

INGREDIENTS:
(Make one 8 inches round cake)

1. 14 chocolate Oreos biscuit and 5 McVites biscuit
2. 50g butter
3. 250g cream cheese
4. 300g whipping cream (i use Redman brand)
5. 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
6. Orange juice (from one orange)-- this is optional, cause i can't taste any orange flavour in the final product
7. Chocolate pieces for fillings and topping (can use any normal chocolate that you like)

METHODS:

1. Crush the Oreo biscuit and McVites biscuit using roller pin or blender. (Use blender to achieve a more fine crumbs)
2. Melt the butter over a pan, and add into the crushed biscuit. Mix well and compact them.
3. Place it into the fridge for 2-3 hours until it harden.
4. Whip the whipping cream until medium peak as shown in photo. Set aside.

6. Add in the whipped cream bit by bit, mix well using mixer after each addition.
7. Add in the orange juice (if using) and mix well.
8. Spread the mixture into your tray on top of the biscuit. Cover the sides too (as shown), so that the chocolate layer won't be visible outside the cake.
