What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  1. Avoid over-softening the ice cream as it may become too runny and difficult to layer.
  2. Avoid using a cake that is too moist, as it can make the layers soggy.
  3. Don’t skip freezing between layers, as it helps the cake hold its shape when sliced.
  4. Avoid overcrowding the toppings, as it can make the cake difficult to slice neatly.
  5. Be careful when removing the springform pan to ensure the layers stay intact.
