Ice Cream Cake

My dash wanted an ice cream cake for his birthday but at $30. I needed to be more frugal in this day. So, I set out to make him an ice cream cake and I will never pay for another cake again!!

This was my first ice cream cake attempted. I will definitely make another and fancy it up to look like one purchased at Baskin and Robins.

1 cake mix
1 tub of cool whip
1 carton of your favorite ice cream
1 4oz cream cheese and 2 cups confectioners sugar

The most important ingredient when making this cake is TIME! TIME and TIME

Prepare any cake mix,in a cookie sheet or two 9x13 pans.
I used a chocolate cake mix baked in a cookie sheet.

I baked it according to directions on the box. Let it cool and then cut the cake in half.

I bought a half gallon of cookies and cream ice cream, in a carton and let it sit on the counter to soften slightly.

I sliced the ice cream with a knife and layed the ice cream evenly across one layer of the cake. I used the entire carton.

I then placed the other layer of cake on top of the ice cream.

Cover with foil and freeze for 3 hours.
Remove from freezer and if the ice cream has melted down the sides take a serrated knife and cut edges so they are clean and even.

Frost with refrigerated cool whip, you can add food coloring for tint if needed.

Take 2 cups of cool whip and add cream cheese and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar. Put in decorative piping bag and pipe a scallopped edge around cake.

Freeze for an additional 2 hours and cake is ready to EAT!!! YUMMERS!!!

Looks great! A shortcut version is to use the Little Debbie/Hostess cakes -arrghh, senior moment - can't remember the name but they are the chocolate cake with the cream filling (not the Swiss Rolls). They fit perfectly in a loaf pan. Line it with plastic wrap, put 4 cakes in the bottom, layer with softened icecream, 4 cakes on top. Wrap plastic wrap to seal and freeze 2+ hours or until set. Remove from loaf pan and invert onto serving platter. "Frost" with cool whip and put back in the freezer for 1 hour or until ready to serve. Slice to serve. It's really good with mint icecream.

Little Debbie! ::PUKE:: just kidding! we love her. But, this is a great recipe! You should make it up and put it on the blog.

Maybe, I will put it on the blog, but if you check the prepared posts, I have a lot in draft form. I just have to re make them and take a picture of it.
