I loved this idea and took it a step further and baked a strawberry cake 9X13 and when it cooled took thread and sliced through it. I put the 1st layer of cake down 1st then the ice cream sandwiches, then cool whip, the rest of the cake and frosted it with cool whip. Froze for a coupe of hours...Served it with sliced strawberries...my family has ALL requested this cake for their birthdays now...I added a photo because it looked so pretty...thanks for such a great idea KLONGMORE


This ice cream was such a hit and SO easy to make!! I love the idea of using ice sandwiches as a base and all the options you can create. Instead of using Cool Whip, which I am not a real fan of, I used name brand ice cream, let it melt for a few minutes and using my hand mixer, I blended in a Butterfinger chocolate bar into the semi-melted ice cream. I used this as my layer between the ice cream sandwiches and on top. I also used a loaf pan and lined it with plastic wrap for easy removal of the cake. Once the ice cream cake was semi-hardened, I drizzled melted chocolate on the top. My kids loved it and my husband said it was better than Baskin Robbins! This recipe is a keeper!! Thank you for sharing it with us all!!

This cake was SO easy and fun to make - and eat! I tweaked the recipe just a bit and added crushed mint fudge grahams between the layers and frosted the cake with softened vanilla ice cream and whipped cream mixed together to make a yummy frosting. I cannot wait to make it again for my husband's birthday.
