The Fault In Our Stars Cake TFIOS

The Fault In Our Stars is a best-selling novel by young adults author and YouTuber John Green. Scroll down to see a little more about the book and movie that topped the box office. In response to the tsunami of requests for a Fault In Our Stars dessert I’ve made this TFIOS icecream cake with crushed chocolatey bits and swirls of rich ganache. There are two reasons I love icecream cakes … first, icecream … and second, because you can make it a long time ahead and store it in the freezer. This cake was delicious but be warned, it’s tough to stop at just one slice!

 

 
The container I used has a volume of 3.25L (0.86 gallons)

As I was saying earlier TFIOS author John Green is an amazing YouTuber who runs the channel ‘Vlog Brothers’ with his brother Hank. You can see him vlogging while on the TFIOS blue carpet for the premiere of The Fault in Our Stars movie.

    Also, Anne, can I cover this cake in whipped cream frosting and freeze it? Will the whipped cream frosting be ok straight from freezer?
    Thanks so much and sorry about all the questions!

    • Hi Lasanthi, Cream cheese frosting can be quite solid when frozen but if it is a thin layer I’m sure you’d be able to cut through it without a problem. ?
