Sweet Jesus now serving epic ice cream cakes

Toronto's epic ice cream cones are getting bigger. Well, they're actually becoming cake. That's right, Sweet Jesus will introduce ice cream cake in the new year, which may be slightly more exciting than the cloying (albeit delicious) white slab cake you usually grab from the grocery store for birthdays and other celebrations.

"I just loved the idea of taking our core cone offerings and taking three our four of those cones and creating a cake out of that ingredient list," says Andrew Richmond, the mastermind behind Sweet Jesus.

"We're essentially taking a cone and putting it into cake form."

The cakes are currently available to diners at two La Carnita locations - uptown and John Street - but they'll be available at Sweet Jesus starting some time in February or March.

When they launch, they'll come in flavours like Red Rapture (red velvet), Bangin' Brownie and Sweet Baby Jesus (caramel, chocolate and peanut butter) and will cost about $30 to $40 each.
