Daring Bakers Jully 2010 Swiss swirl ice cream cake

I didn't want to miss this months DB. So I thought I will do a sheduled post.
By the time you read this post we will be in Italy ( Rome) for a week, enjoying good food , drinks etc.....
Our daughter is getting 18 years so we thought we will celebrate her b'day in Rome as she has been doing Latin for the last 6 yrs and she is just crazy for Roman history and culture.

So I won't be ablt to visit all you DB post till I am back from our holidays.

The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s world- life and food . Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make a bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream cake recipe from Taste of Home.-

The moment I saw this recipe in the foroumn I loved it. It really suited for the weather we are having here and I do have a ice cream machine .
We had to make two different ice cream, but I didn't do. I have been really lazy to make dessert and bakes for this month, actually the only baking I did this month was DB.
So I just did a Vanilla Ice cream and I had big plans for making the Strawberry ice cream.And what i did was took half of the vanilla ice cream and mixed with strawberries which were sauted with a bit of sugar, I cooled it down and then added to the half of vanilla ice cream so that atleast I will have 2 flavours as Sunita had told us we needed to make two different flavours.
I didnt do the delicous fudge sauce ( will surely make that as it is a delicous recipe) I just served with strawberry sauce.
I will post the recipe when I come back as I am fast writting thepost the day before we are leaving.

Hi sweetie, Bomb with IceCream looks so yum.

A very happy 18th birthday to S, I bet you are all having a blast there, enjoy the very special time.
