The relative humidity of the air is important as well, my first instinct is that the water in the ice cream would quickly evaporate, only remaining in it's melted state briefly. What remains is still frozen. I can even imagine the solids remaining behind forming a crust over the frozen parts, slowing down conduction.

Depends on relative humidity ...
