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.
This was an amazing recipie. I made this cake for my birthday with chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate cake. All of my friends were so impressed. I was even impressed. I never realized how easy it was to make your own ice cream cake.
This was the best. I altered it though. I bought Good Humor Vanilla Ice cream and chopped up little mini reeses cups, mixed it in, and put it in the plastic lined cake pan and put it in the freezer. I made the chocolate cakes 2 days in advance, put the ice cream in the middle and flavored the whip cream with some instant chocolate pudding mix. Loved it and so easy. I think i liked the ice cream more than the cake cuz of the candy in it.
I made a triple chocolate ice cream cake for my sons 8th birthday. He loved it and even I was impressed! Thanks!
This was great! Made this with a German Chocolate cake mix, and mint chocolate chip ice cream. I also put fudge sauce between the layers. It was a big hit, and the cake was surprisingly moist. I did not, however, use the whipped topping. Just ice cream and fudge sauce.
