Wonderful cake! This is better than store bought ice cream cakes and so much tastier! Much to my dismay, my daughter wanted a white cake with vanilla ice cream and plain whipped cream frosting. I would have chosen to really liven it up, but it WAS her birthday, so I made it as she wanted. It was very easy and turned out great! Mine served 8 so far and there is still half left! She was so pleased with it and so was I. I didn't read all the directions so made the cake according to the box instructions. Still fabulous, but if I'd followed the directions it would have been healthier.

My box of cake mix was 18.9 oz, otherwise followed recipe. I did add a layer of crushed Famous Chocolate Wafers mixed with melted butter.
