Shoestring Entertaining - Ice Cream Cake that's fit for a dairy queen

Ice Cream Cake is such a treat for a birthday or graduation. But those cool cakes can be pretty pricey at Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins. Here is a recipe from my mom that is delicious, elegant, and best of all Frugal.

Ice Cream Cake

You will need:

  • Cake mix - your choice
  • Brick of ice cream- your choice
  • Large carton Cool Whip.
  • Your favorite hot fudge or caramel sauce.
  • Your favorite candies or sprinkles and nuts.

Line 13" x 9" cake pan with foil. Make sure the foil comes over the sides so you can easily take cake out of the pan.

Spray foil with Pam.

Follow directions on cake mix package and pour the batter into the foil lined pan. Bake.

Let it cool.

Using the foil, remove the cake from the pan.

Cut the cake into two layers using a string of dental floss.

Cut ice cream in slices and lay on top of bottom layer.

Cover the ice cream with candy, fudge sauce or whatever you’re hungry for.

Put top layer back on and freeze.

Before serving take out of the pan and put on serving tray.

Cover the entire cake with cool whip. Add nuts, sprinkles etc..

It will look so great your friends will want to know which ice cream store you picked it up at. You will enjoy the compliment and happily be counting the money you saved..
