Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Tart

Being challenged to make a Chocolate Ice Cream dessert, that wasn’t chocolate ice cream, got me thinking. After all photographing Ice Cream isn’t the easiest thing in the world. Why not an Ice Cream Tart!

I struggled with this challenge a little for a while because I loathe photographing ice-cream. It is impossible! Just when you get the lighting right and the styling ok, you find you have a bowl of liquid where there once were beautiful scoops of the frozen treat.
