Part 8, The Great Ice-Cream Debate: Once we mixed the ice-cream and the chocolate together we had to decide how we were going to get the ice-cream to stay inside the cookie. The boys wanted to put the ice-cream on the warm cookies because they were eager to finish our mission, but the girl persevered and made us all wait until the cookie was cool. And at 10 at night.
Part 9, Adding the Ice-Cream to the Cookie: The boys finally took control and applied the ice-cream deliciousness to the middle of the cookie. All was well!
At this point we’d like to remind you that this is made from all vegan ingredients, and Ben and Jerry’s ‘Wich’s aren’t. This ended up being our downfall as the rubbish vegan ice-cream has a weak constitution and melts at freezing point:
And then we decided to make this into an Iced Gem Pimp instead (Not really…).
Part 10, The Reckoning: Although the ice-cream was melting, we still had high hopes for our ‘Wich. You can see the original ‘Wich in the corner, isn’t it tiny… Because of our excitement and sleep deprivation we got the top cookie out of the oven a little earlier then we should have, and this led to yet another set back in our delicious dream…
Oh my god! We were all struck with panic as the slightly warm ‘Wich began to fall apart before our very eyes. We attempted to salvage our cookie by supporting it from all angles with our infinity of hands, but it was to no avail, the last cookie had indeed crumbled.
Crap. Eight hours out of three young lives. That’s the same as spending a day at school in Cookery Class with no playtime. It still tasted great though, the beauty was on the inside. Apart from when we found out how much fat was in it. The beast contained 1,098 grams of fat and a total of 29,865 calories. We worked out that the mighty pimp ‘Wich could provide your fat and calorie intake for 15 days (11 if you’re a man).
What we learnt from this experience: vegan ice cream is the devil, but we encourage other pimpers out there to experiment with vegan goodness
