Baskin Robbins Elsa Ice Cream Cake

Hi everyone! We’re in Canada as we publish this! Woohoo! We’re here for one week to see our families, and then we’re off to the Dominican Republic to go to a friend’s wedding, in which I’m one of the groomsmen. Woot! But, even though we’re gonna be out of the country for a couple of weeks, that doesn’t mean that we didn’t film some videos in advance, including this special video right here: Baskin Robbins Elsa Ice Cream Cake.

Now, why did we do this video? A couple of reasons, really. Firstly, one person from our staff that’s been helping Soo Zee out is leaving, so we had a going away cake before our going away dinner, which seems kinda like putting the cart before the horse, now that we think of it. Really, we just used that as an excuse to try a Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cake, because – reason #2 – they’re a lot fancier than what we saw in Baskin Robbins back in Canada, and also a lot cooler than the cakes we saw online for Baskin Robbins USA. I’d think that it would be the other way around: in the country where the company originated, you’d see more stuff, while in other branches around the world you’d see less, but Baskin Robbins here in Korea is NO JOKE. And their cakes are pretty freaking amazing.

For starters, they pack dry ice into the box to keep your cake cold. When you order the cake, they ask you how long you’re gonna need before eating, and they measure out enough ice to keep your cake cold. Isn’t that brilliant? You might ask, “why don’t you just put it in the freezer?” and the answer to that is this: freezers aren’t really in every office, as far as I know. I’ve seen fridges, but not many freezers in offices in Korea. So there! It’s better to keep the Frozen cake frozen in the box, rather than frozen in a fridge, right?

Also, this cake is pretty stunning. If you get a cake from a chain in Korea, even from Paris Baguette or Tous Le Jours, they do a good job of presentation with boxing and candles and whatnot, but I still think that Baskin Robbins, shall we say…takes the cake? Ha! Oh that was corny.

Anyhow, we just wanted to share something fun and interesting with you. Sure, these cakes aren’t really representative of Korean culture, but I haven’t experience cakes like this back home, so I though it’d be interesting to show off. Does Baskin Robbins do cakes this elaborate where you’re from? I saw a few episodes of a show called “Ace of Cakes” or something like that, in which they had far more elaborate cakes than what you saw in this video, but those were custom made from cake artists, and not from a franchise, so that doesn’t really count, I don’t think.

We’ve got some bloopers from this week’s video as well, if you’re feeling in the mood for some extra jokes. We said a lot of stuff that didn’t make the final cut, but I didn’t want to cut it out altogether. So, here you go. And, yes, we do watch too many Vine videos. WHOOO! YOU’S RIGHT!

  1. Spat out coffee when Simon sucked on Elsa! Dying~~~~~ Off topic: I love looking at the drawings/artwork your viewers send in. But do you guys ever feel weird looking at yourselves depicted in art all the time everywhere you turn? It’s sorta like having anime mirrors everywhere you look. Have a great trip!

  2. Don’t you dare eat me!!!

    At first I was wondering what the hell an ice cream cake was, and then you mentioned Chrisrmas, and I remembered the bûches we eat at Christmas, which are a combination of cake and ice cream and are freaking delicious. Now that I think of it I don’t even know if other people eat that at Christmas. Is it a French thing? People who eat it, how do you call it?
    This looks similar, although the blue colour is a bit off-putting.

    And Frozen was nowhere as good as Rapunzel, or any other Pixar or Disney film now that I think of it. But the graphics were jus lovely, and contrary to popular opinion, I love Let it Go.
    It’s also given the chance to everything child I meet and baby-sit to call me Snow Queen and ask me to show my powers. I don’t have powers, but the nickname was long overdue if you ask me.

  4. OMG Baskins Robbins is just awesome in Korea! Y’know in Singapore, we barely have much choices when it comes to their ice cream cakes(maybe just 3-4 flavors, and no cool designs haha). Something of a similar size of the Elsa cake would set you back around 50,000won.

  9. Penguins keep the outer layer of their bodies colder than the air so technically they don’t get cold?????

    Sorry, totally unrelated to the video but I just saw something I thought you guys would love! It’s an all-in-one travelling coffee maker designed by a Korean team called Beanscorp. The product is called Cafflano and it looks absolutely amazing, comes with a drip kettle, hand grinder, filter, and cup all in one. Would be great for travelling with :) Their kickstarter has already ended but hopefully people will be able to buy them soon.

  11. My niece is having a frozen themed birthday party next week and would go crazy if she could get that cake.

    Dear Baskin Robbins USA,

    Please bring us nifty specialty ice cream cakes and make Orange Caramel your official U.S. endorser. Heck, combine the two and send us nifty specialty Orange Caramel ice cream cakes.

    Does anyone know if there were Orange Caramel ice cream cakes for their Abing Abing promotion in Korea?

  12. The only ice cream cakes I ever see are Gelato cakes and crappy Dairy Queen cakes. The first not as often since there’s so few gelato places that do ice cream cakes.

    I will say this and hopefully not get attacked, but my bf and I went to watch Frozen in the theatres because we heard how good it was. We came out of that movie thinking that it was way too overhyped and we both don’t think it’s the best Disney movie in the world. To us, the best part of the movie was the opening Mickey Mouse cartoon…

    So no need to feel bad about not loving Frozen to the max.

    • I feel the same, I prefered way much more The Princess And The Frog (this one is so underrated compared to Frozen).
      I have to say that the image work on Frozen is amazing but the story, hum… not that great.

    When I first saw the cake doll at amazon, I was just frustrated since it just look like a property at the psycho thriller drama… and it seems like some kind of evil forces are expanding its market in korea.

  15. First of all, Toronto Represent! Currently studying at U OF T. Anyways, the entire time I was reading about the cake, I was thinking about the show Cake Boss. They make the most awesome, crazy cakes. I know they are not really a franchise, but damn, their cakes are out of this world. If you guys haven’t seen this show, you should totally watch it. =)

    I am not allowed to read the blog posts when i really tired anymore! I’ve got all of it wrong. The Read That Soo Zee was leaving note the one helping her. (Sorry That You are leaving the crew Anyway, thought all that you’ll have donated for EYK) So my eyes were tearing up like crazy, lucky for me I always read the posts twice. Wow what a rollercoaster of emotions! Love from A tired Nasty (>○<)zzz

  18. i think a lot of people liked frozen because it was supposed to parallel what teens with depression/anxiety feel like, with the isolation and constant fear *cough likemyself cough*

  19. Simon’s right! Penguins DO have ears. However, they don’t have external structures like we humans do (so you can’t visibly see them). That said, Martina’s *partially* right in that they have “holes” in which they hear from. However, the internal structures that allow hearing are still considered ears, or rather, internal ears. But still ears.

    • So I just watched the bloopers, and yes, penguins DO get cold. It’s equivalent to you guys having to go through the winter here in Canada, but we just add on layers of clothes to keep ourselves warm. They have their feathers to insulate them, but just like Canada, the weather varies in the Arctic, so there can be periods of extreme freezing, and periods of warmth. Really they have specialized behaviours (e.g. huddling) or physical responses (the feather equivalent of goose bumps) to trap more heat around them when it gets too much for them to handle. But yes, they do get cold.

  21. I had the same reaction to Frozen, but for some reason children are obsessed with it. Maybe there are subliminal messages in the songs. Ice cream cake (particularly Carvel) was like a big New York/New Jersey thing if I remember. I only know that because I had cousins in New York, and on their birthday it was the biggest deal to get a Carvel birthday cake.

  22. Damn, dude…2 bites… That’s what I’m talking about. Food isn’t meant to be savored, it’s meant to be consumed. Get inside of me now, not after I’m done making love to it with my tongue.

  24. Ice Cream Cake?…*starts singing Red Velvet’s Ice Cream Cake song* (I really like that song, especially the chorus!)
    I want Baskin Robbins!!! T_T Last time i had it was so many years ago and ever since, that store closed down!! And now that SHINee are the endorsers THE FANGIRL IN ME WANTS IT EVEN, EVEN EEEEVEN MORE!!!!!

    Oh man, Simon sucking on that Elsa looks like, 1. It’s an Elsa dummy and 2. He’s a Titan!!
    Watching Simon eat that cake had me thinking- does he ever eat his moustache hair in the process of eating, and has he coughed up furballs after it?

    Oh gosh, I hope i don’t get darn ads about Frozen all over the net now…the pop-up one on YT for this video was…please no more!!!
    Hey~ I watched Ace of Cakes some years before!! But now i watch Cake Boss ahaha! (Hoboken Style Baby!)
