      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.

      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;”>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.
