Easy Peasy Ice Cream Cake for the Lazy and Crazy Like Me

I know. That title is terrible. But this ice cream cake? SO. NOT. TERRIBLE.

Make your own ice cream cake using ice cream sandwiches, chocolate sauce, caramel and cool whip for an easy, delicious treat | Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

So last week, Brian sent me an animated gif with ice cream sandwiches becoming a cake. With Brian’s birthday this past Saturday, and the fact that he NEVER requests things like that…I knew I had to make this cake. Of course, there was no how to on the gif, so I made it up as I went.

Yesterday, we celebrated my brother-in-law’s birthday, Brian’s birthday and sort of my brother’s birthday (he’s 30 this year, so we’ve got another party for him next week). I got all the ingredients to make this sweet little cake and dropped them off at Mom’s.

After dinner, I pulled out the ingredients and quickly whipped this cake into shape. It was seriously the easiest thing ever. And the 15 minutes? Totally included picture taking.

15-Minute Ice Cream Cake (serves 6-8)

Ingredients

  • 9 ice cream sandwiches
  • chocolate syrup
  • caramel syrup
  • Cool Whip

Steps

  1. Lay 3 ice cream sandwiches next to each other
  2. Drizzle chocolate and caramel over the sandwiches (this keeps the layers all stuck together-I also considered using real frosting or fruit)
  3. Lay 3 ice cream sandwiches in the opposite direction
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3
  5. Cover the entire cake with Cool Whip
  6. Decorate as much or as little as you like
  7. Slice lengthwise for ice cream cake joy

BOOM.

Also, don’t you dare judge my super awesome chocolate caramel heart on the top of the Cool Whip. I forgot to bring maraschino cherries.

You guys, this was seriously delicious. Everyone enjoyed it. It got a little messy near the end–definitely more difficult to cut than I thought it would be. Just make sure you slice all the way through the cookie layers, and you’ll be good to go.

  1. Yummy!! And what a great idea.

  2. Looks good! I like recipes that are this easy to follow.

  3. I have been seriously craving some ice cream sandwiches lately.

  4. At this time in my life, I could go for it. Better than going to some fancy/smancy bakery to buy a grossly overpriced ice cream cake. That’s what kids with “affluenza” get on their birthdays and nothing good comes of it. 😉

  5. If I can find some health ice cream sandwiches I will so try this from my daughters birthday! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  6. YUM! That looks delicious, including the chocolate caramel heart. Mmmmmm.

  7. It was soooo fab…I went off Atkins to eat it!!!

  8. Oh yeah, so how cute is that tablecloth?

  9. I want to eat it right now! I can’t believe I have to wait until I go to the store and buy the ingredients. My life is so hard.

    I am thinking about adding a crushed cookie layer…like oreos or chocolate chip.

    Thanks for sharing! My mom’s birthday party thanks you in advance.

  10. You know what’s truly awesome? Home made ice cream sandwiches that are made with waffles. You can make from scratch or use Eggo’s. No joke it’s awesome.

  11. Damn! That looks incredible.

  12. Oh yum!! This looks so easy! Beautiful blog!!

Speak to me. Tell me awesome things. Tell me secrets. Tell me lies.
