Who Says Creamsicles Have To Be On a Stick?

A little while ago, PartySugar gave us a great recipe for a simple creamsicle-style popsicle. Once I read it, I started craving the creamy orange treat, so imagine my surprise when I found out that today is National Creamsicle Day! So help me celebrate by either making your own creamsicle, having a store bought one or indulging in this seductively simple orange creamsicle cake! To get the cake recipe,

Frozen "Creamsicle" Cake
From Gourmet Magazine, June 2002

6 low-fat vanilla wafers, finely ground in a food processor
2 teaspoons finely grated fresh orange zest
2 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 cup orange sorbet, slightly softened
1 cup nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt

Garnish: finely julienned fresh orange zest
Special equipment: a 3 1/2- by 7 1/2-inch (3 1/2-cup) loaf pan

  1. Line loaf pan with a double layer of plastic wrap, allowing a few inches of overhang along sides.
  2. Stir together cookie crumbs, zest, butter, and corn syrup in a small bowl, then press into bottom of loaf pan.
  3. Spread sorbet evenly over crumb crust and freeze 30 minutes to harden.
  4. While sorbet is freezing, slightly soften frozen yogurt.
  5. Spread evenly over sorbet and freeze, covered with plastic wrap, until firm, at least 2 hours.
  6. Using plastic wrap as an aid, lift frozen cake out of pan, then peel off plastic.
  7. Let stand 5 minutes to soften, then cut crosswise into 4 slices.

Each serving contains about 197 calories and 3 grams fat.

That looks fantastic! I just love frozen deserts since they look so elaborate and tend not to be that hard to make.
