"I was perusing the ice cream cake recipes here and couldn't find what I had in mind so I made this one up. At our house we use gluten free cake mix, lactose free ice cream, and sugar free Cool Whip so please feel free to adapt this recipe to meet your dietary needs. The cake ingredients included are for the gluten free mix I make. If your cake calls for more or less, eggs, water, or oil, make sure to use the necessary changes. Cook time is partly freezing time."

"Loved this super easy recipe! I halved this recipe by making 1/2 box of cake mix in a round, 9" springform pan (I weighed the mix and used half, then used half the oil, water, and 2 eggs). After baking, I popped the sides off the pan, sliced the cake in half with a serrated knife, and put the sides back on. Then, I layered ice cream, toffee, and hot fudge topping in the middle before replacing the top. So quick to make and the whole family loved it. Thanks for such a simple, clear explanation!"
"My DD really wanted an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen for her birthday. Only problem is - I can't eat the cake from DQ because of gluten intolerance, so I convinced her that we should make this cake and I did and it was very good. Will make this again. Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"This was super-popular at the most recent work birthday party! Kinda funny, actually -- I called it my "Charlie Brown Christmas Ice Cream Cake" because I had some assembly and freezing issues, but through no fault of this recipe (which is why I didn't bother with a photo; it was pretty tortured-looking by the time I got it to it's destination and had time to snap a pic). Technical difficulties aside, this still tasted wonderful! I used a Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge cake mix, Edy's Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich ice cream, I spread a jar of hot fudge topping on the bottom of the top cake layer, and I frosted the whole cake with two 8 oz tubs of Cool Whip Extra Creamy. I decorated it with milk chocolate sprinkles and drizzles of chocolate fudge Magic Shell. I'll definitely be making this again sometime. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4 Family Picks"
"This was very simple to make and very tasty. I made this for ZWT4 kids challenge and will make this again. It is perfect for the hot weather, very refreshing. Next time I may put down a layer of fudge with the heath toffee pieces."
"I made this for ZWT4 for a cooking with kids challenge! This was super easy to make, my kids did most of the work! The combination of chocolate and toffee is always a family favorite... So we all loved this! Thank you for posting!"
