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!
