Tiger Tail Cake

Tiger Tail Cake!

When I was growing up, one of my absolute favorite ice cream flavors was called “Tiger Tail” – Sometimes “Tiger Tiger”, depending on the brand. It was an orange ice cream with black licorice marbled through it. Still love it, can’t get it in Minnesota, so I make it at home. (Click here for my recipe!)

This cake flavor takes me back… and it works well for “Tiger” school colors and sports teams! (Consider school bake sale potential!)

As an alternative, swap banana extract for the orange extract. Banana and black licorice is another unusual flavor combination that works incredibly well!

Tomorrow’s cake recipe is based on my husband’s favorite ice cream flavor when HE was growing up – Spumoni Cake!

    This deserves a big ‘OMG!’ I love, love, love Tiger Tail ice cream, since trying it 25 years ago on my honeymoon. I do not understand why this hasn’t caught on crossed the bridge to Michigan!

    As a kid I loved Tiger Tail and miss it to this day. I will now find myself baking a cake for the first time in my life and enjoying all of it on my own because for some reason ‘normal’ people cannot find the euphoric joy of orange and licorice like I can. Poor souls.

    AMAZING! How is it that I have not come across these beautiful recipes before? I am fellow Canadian (NL,) and dearly remember Tiger Tail ice cream, which lead me to this recipe. I have to make this recipe. I will follow you and find more delicious recipes and I really look forward to being as thrilled as I was to find this recipe!

    I don’t understand why every great creamery in Canada has been absorbed by a mega dairy… TigerTiger Ice Cream disappeared in Winnipeg when DutchMaid vanished – I understand the flavour has resurfaced as TigerTail from Chapman’s… so that’s good . But I digress

    Your cake looks absolutely wonderful…
