I really like to bake. Maybe you already know this about me. Something you may not know is how much I dislike this Southern heat. It was 112 degrees here yesterday. 112!! So no baking for me! This challenged me to come up with a new cake idea that didn’t make the house any hotter than it already was. Now I think I just might like this cake in favor of baking every time! It’s a 3-Layer DIY Ice Cream Cake filled with vanilla ice cream and fudge layers, topped with whipped cream, mini cones, chocolate sauce and wrapped in ice cream sandwiches. Here’s how to make it…
Blue Bunny has these amazing ice creams and novelties like mini swirl cones and ice cream sandwiches. So as I walked down the ice cream section at Walmart I was thinking to myself, how many of these delicious things can I incorporate into this cake? All of them? Maybe.
- Springform Pan
- Waxed paper
- 2 quarts Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream, softened
- 2 boxes of Blue Bunny ice cream sandwhiches
- Hot Fudge Sauce ice cream topping
- 8 oz container Whipped Topping, thawed
- Chocolate Sauce (for drizzingling)
- 1 box Blue Bunny Mini Swirls cones
- Sprinkles (optional)
You’ll probably be amazed at just how easy this is. In fact, when I made it for Father’s Day my husband just assumed I’d bought it. He said, I knew it wasn’t your style [to buy a cake] but it just looked so good! I NEVER buy our cakes. Like, ever. I guess it just looked that good to him. That’s good for us though right? It’s easy but it doesn’t look it!
Step 1 Line a Springform Pan or cheesecake pan (the ones with the side release) with wax paper overlapping the sides by an inch or two. I used the large 10″ pan but the size you use is up to you.
Press the ice cream as far over to the ice cream sandwiches as it will go. This will help keep your sandwiches pressed firmly against the sides and help them to stand up. Smooth it down and pop back into the freezer for 10-15 mins to harden.
Step 4 Now it’s time for the hot fudge sauce! You’ll use it straight out of the jar, no need to heat. Spread contents of the jar along the top layer and pop back into the freezer again for 10-15 mins.
Smooth it down and put back into the freezer. I left mine overnight but you could totally use the same day. I would suggest doing this part earlier in the day and taking it out after several hours and topping just before serving.
Pull the wax paper down from the sides. Lift it up using the sides of the wax paper as handles and place onto your serving plate.
Add your container of whipped topping and spread along the top of your cake.
