    Hi Everyone,



    We will be celebrating my son's 7th birthday this weekend and he

    really wants an ice cream cake for it. They are pretty expensive

    especially to feed everyone. My husband and I have 5 kids, I have 7

    siblings plus they have spouses and kids. My husband has 1 sister

    plus her husband and 2 kids not counting grandparents. And it never

    fails the neighborhood kids end up at my house also. Plus you never

    know unexpected guests always seem to show up on days you would

    rather they don't come over.LOL.



    But I was thinking of making one but don't want to ruin it on his

    special day. I would think maybe soften some ice cream, spread it,

    crumble a cake over it, add more soft ice cream but how would you do

    the frosting?



    Any recipes or other good ideas for the party please let me know we

    are open to any and all suggestions.




    Thank You Very Much

    Christine

    We’ve
    done this several times for my son. Ours is different from the store ones
    in that our ice cream is on top instead of the bottom. We make the cake
    in a 9x13 pan. You have to do this at least a day or two before the party
    as it needs to be frozen before putting the ice cream on. You soften the
    ice cream just enough to spread it on the cake (softest on the cake top because
    if not, it will crumble the top of the cake) and then put it back in the
    freezer until hardened. If you don’t like the appearance of the ice
    cream top just put chocolate syrup, nuts, whipped cream, etc, on it. Also,
    be prepared for serving it – if it’s in a deep-freezer you will
    need to take it out to thaw a little earlier. And you can heat the
    cutting knife in hot water to make it easier. Hope this helps!

    crunch them up a bit while still in the bag and then add. I’ve

    <FONT face="Arial" color="#000000" size="2">the best way to make an ice cream cake is to freeze it inside a cake pan the size you want the cake to be. line the pan with plastic wrap. smooth softened ice cream into the pan and freeze until hard. remove from freezer, add cake or filling and another layer of ice cream, refreeze. remove after frozen, turn over onto cake plate, and ice with a plain buttercream icing or flavor the buttercream. you can also use a whipped cream icing flavored or not. hope this helps.

    I bake a brownie mix in a thin layer on a sheet pan. Watch closely

    since it is thin. Meanwhile I pull out my ice cream (2 half gallons)

    whatever flavors to soften. After the brownie is cool I start

    assembling. I put down one layer of ice cream in a 13x9 pan then put

    a layer of brownie, then top with the other flavor ice cream. Cover

    and refreeze. I frost with a cool whip that has a box of pudding mix

    mixed in to compliment the flavors. Gel frosting works well with the

    cold. Hope this gives you ideas. Blessings

    Before I married my husband, his mom bought him an ice cream cake for

    his birthday every year. Once we were married and I saw the price of

    an ice cream cake...yikes! I found a recipe for a mint chocolate ice

    cream cake (my hubby's favorite flavor) in Woman's World magazine and

    gave it a try. Hubby said it was better than any store bought ice

    cream cake. So, he gets it for his birthday, Valentine's Day,

    Father's Day, and whatever other days he can think of a reason to

    celebrate. He just loves it. You can tweak the recipe for whatever

    flavor you wnat it to be. Also, I don't have the actual recipe in

    front of me. The original recipe was a made from scratch cake, but I

    use store bought now and it's just as good.



    You need 3 round cake pans (the same size). Let a half gallon of ice

    cream soften. Criss cross two pieces of wax paper across one of the

    pans and pushinto the bottom. Fill this one with the softened ice

    cream and freeze. The wax paper makes the ice cream easy to lift out

    after it's frozen.



    Make your cake in the other two pans. I use a deviled food cake mix

    and I crush up a bag of mini oreo cookies (leave about a dozen whole

    ones out for top of cake) and add them to the batter. I also add a

    cup of chocolate chips to the batter as well, so it is a triple

    chocolate cake. Once the cake is baked and cooled, you place one cake

    round on your cake plate, top with the ice cream, and then the other

    cake. I then take a white frosting and add green tint plus some mint

    extract. Frost the cake and decorate the top with the remaining mini

    oreos (or andes candies). If the ice cream part of the cake is hard

    to frost, just roll the ice cream in chocolate sprinkles before

    putting between the two cakes. It looks and tastes good!

    I make ours with cake mix -- 1/2 the made up cake mix, in 2 separate

    pans. Bake as usual, only for a shorter time. (I usually use a 13x9

    inch pan, but have used 4, 9-inch round pans too) Once baked, I turn

    the cakes out. . put one layer on serving dish, spread slightly

    softened ice cream over it, then top with another layer. AS far as

    icing. . . I either thin down regular icing and spread, or simply

    spread Cool Whip on it.

    9pt;">This recipe is from Top Secret Recipes. Instead of cutting
    the ice cream box in half, I prefer softening it then spreading it in the same
    sized pan I made the cake in. To make the ice cream easier to take out of the
    pan, line the pan with plastic wrap first.
    <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;" align="center"> 9pt;">Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake 9pt;">
    9pt;">I've discovered the most popular version is the one made
    from white cake with pralines and cream ice cream on top. So that's got
    to be the version we clone here. But don't think you're locked into this
    formula - you can use any flavor of cake and ice cream you fancy for your
    homemade masterpiece. Just be sure the ice cream you choose comes in a
    box. It should be rectangular shape so that the ice cream layer stacks up
    right. Then you'll want to find a real sharp serrated knife to cut the
    ice cream in half while it's in the box. And check this out: That white
    stuff that coats the cake is actually softened ice cream spread on a thin layer
    like frosting, and then re-frozen. After it sets up, you can decorate the
    cake any way you like with pre-made frosting in whatever color suits your
    festive occasion. Voilà! You've just made an ice cream cake at home
    that looks and tastes like those in the stores that costs around $35 each.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">Cake 9pt;">

    1 box white cake mix

    1 1/4 cups water

    1/3 cup vegetable oil

    3 egg whites



    1/2-gallon box pralines and cream ice cream

    4 cups (2 pints) vanilla ice cream

    1 12-ounce container white frosting



    Optional

    colored frosting
    9pt;">
    9pt;">Make your cake following the directions on the box. If you
    are making the white cake you will likely blend the cake mix with water, oil,
    and 3 eggs. Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan and bake at
    350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. This will make a thin cake for our bottom
    layer. When cake is done, let it cool to room temperature.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">When the cake has cooled, carefully remove it from the pan
    and place it on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet, or a platter or tray that
    will fit into your freezer.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">Use a sharp serrated knife (a bread knife works great) to
    slice the ice cream lengthwise through the middle, box and all, so that you
    have two 2-inch thick sheets of ice cream. Peel the cardboard off the ice
    cream and lay the halves next to each other on the cake. Slice the edges
    of the cake all the way around so that the cake is the same size as the ice
    cream on top. Work quickly so that the ice cream doesn't melt. When
    the cake has been trimmed, place it into the freezer for an hour or two.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">When you are ready to frost the cake, take the two pints (4
    cups) of vanilla ice cream out of the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to
    soften. Stir the ice cream so that it is smooth, like frosting. Use
    a frosting knife or spatula to coat your cake with about 2 cups of ice
    cream. Cover the entire surface thoroughly so that you cannot see any of
    the cake or ice cream underneath. Pop the cake into the freezer for an
    hour or so to set up.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">When the cake has set, fill a pastry bag (with a fancy tip)
    with white frosting to decorate all around the top edge of the cake. Also
    decorate around the bottom of the cake. Use colored frosting and
    different tips to add inspired artistic flair and writing on the cake, as
    needed. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and keep it in your freezer
    until party time.
    9pt;">
    9pt;">When you are ready to serve the cake, leave it out for 10
    minutes before slicing. Cut the cake with a sharp knife that has been
    held under hot water. Makes 1 large cake (16 - 20 servings).



    Tidbit

    You may wish to use another flavor cake mix such as chocolate or devil's food
    for this dessert - even low-fat cake mix works. It's up to you. Just follow the
    directions on the box for making the cake in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
    You can also use any flavor of ice cream. Just be sure to get it in a box.

    Hi!

    My first job as a teen was at Dairy Queen and I made the cakes. The formula for the "crunchy" stuff in the center of the cake is crunched up chocolate cookies covered with magic shell. It&#39;s that easy!

    One layer of soft serve ice cream, cold fudge, cookie crunch, layer of soft serve again. To decorate I used whipped cream frosting and icing gel.

    Quite easy to MYO! the tip about using hot water to cut the cake is spot on! Keep a tall container of HOT water next to you when cutting cake and it should go very smooth. We recommended taking the cake out for 20 mins before cutting however we kept the cakes in a super cold deep freeze (called a flash freezer). I would think if you are going to freeze it in a standard house freezer maybe 10 mins before so the knife can pass easier. Any longer you may risk it being a big melted mess!

    HTH,
