Ice Cream Crunch Cake

"This is always a winner at Christmas time, of course in Aus it's hot at Christmas, so its ideal as a sub for a hot dessert. SO good. Cooking time doesn't include time taken to soften ice cream, or overnight freezing."

I am a?36 year old aussie girl,I live in a quiet country town, which is only an hour from the City of Adelaide which is the capital of SA. I love it here, I have almost 2 acres of land, so theres plenty of room to move around. I would LOVE to?have my own vegetable garden, but I do not have a green thumb. And am quite unlucky in the growing plants department.?I have 2 young sons aged 14(Jacob) and 10(Phoenix) who are the worlds pickiest eaters, and I'm always on the look out for new and yummy ways to get them to eat good nutritious food. (veggies especially) It is quite a challenge seeing as dad is almost as picky as the kids!!! But he is learning not to be afraid of trying new things. I love baking, pies and cakes mostly, and i have a weakness for roast meats and potatoes, all the good warming comfort food!
