Want to know how to make the easiest ice cream cake ever??? My oldest recently celebrated her 12th birthday! She is not a huge fan of cake, but LOVES ice cream. I had seen an idea for a cake made out of ice cream sandwiches on Pinterest and thought this was the perfect time to try it out....it was SO GOOD! I'm thinking of making another very soon...no special occasion needed!
All you have to do is stack up ice cream sandwiches. We bought a box full of 12, so our cake was 4 layers tall (with 3 sandwiches in each layer). I criss-crossed each layer. I also added a thin layer of hot fudge ice cream topping between each layer. To frost, you just use thawed out cool whip! I finished it off with toppings of M&Ms and hardening chocolate shell ice cream topping. Oh, and my daughter picked out mint chip ice cream sandwiches. With all the different flavors of ice cream sandwiches and ice cream toppings, the possibilities are endless! Sorry I didn't take step-by-step photos but if you do a quick search on Google or Pinterest for an ice cream sandwich cake, you should find plenty! Hope you enjoy your ice cream sandwich cake as much as we enjoyed ours!
Also, feel free to embellish them. I left them colorless, so you could make them your own! I am thinking of having my daughter color them in using glitter crayons. I also tried painting the ring portion with water colors and used mod podge and glitter on the diamond. (*tip* color them in / paint them before you cut them out- it's easier!)
You can also add any kind of treat with them or not. My daughter wants to attach them to ring pops, but I think they would work with pretty much anything!
