Daring Bakers Challenge For the Love of Chocolate

The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE's blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef.
We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge.
And I'm very grateful to them because: the recipe is very good , it is easy, they managed to force me to get the ice cream maker out of the secret place I kept it , and I could reach the third floor (the celiac one) when sharing my baking.
I made a zabaione ice cream to go with the cake and served it along with my terrace's kumquats marmalade !

Gelato allo zabaione

4 yolks
80 gr. sugar
65 gr. Moscato di Pantelleria (or Marsala)
125 gr. skimmed milk
250 gr cream

Whisk together yolks and sugar until whitish, add Moscato and put on a water bath whisking until it makes a ribbon. Cool, add milk and cream and put it in an ice cream maker.
