Ice Cream that high-fives your taste buds.

Twinkie Feast

Twinkies kind of look like some dog’s tails, short, stubby and cute.

You can feel the slightly damp cake in this shot which is why I love Twinkies. They are greasy and oily but still light and you don’t feel ALL that bad after eating one or two. (kinda).

Twinkie X-Ray

I made this for a “guilty pleasure” themed gathering which was in very good company. Chicken nuggets, Popeye’s biscuits, donuts, fries, cheap wine and the list goes on. DROOL.

I chopped up some Twinkies and mixed it with a vanilla bean base. I did do some different stuff with the base this time around. I substituted heavy whipping cream with half and half and again used corn starch instead of eggs.  I only used one Tbsp of corn starch and it was a great level of hardness..not too soft but not rock hard either. The vanilla bean really came out in this one verse others I’ve made with using all heavy whipping cream.

Twinkie Feast

Soft, airy, cloud-like cake can sometimes take on a stale flavor when in ice cream because when you mix it in ice cream it’s wet at that point, and makes it a wee bit soggy. The cream really held up though which is more or less the best part of a Twinkie anyway. I went nuts with the photos…it just photographed so well!
