With just a few store-bought ingredients (or homemade ingredients, you can make a showstopping centerpiece for your special occasion, stacked with ice-cold layers of cake, ice cream and all kinds of sweetness.
Here’s all you need to make this sweetness:
• Baked chocolate cake
• Powdered sugar
• Whipping cream
• Ice Cream
How to make an Ice cream Cake;
Place a cake layer on the sheet tray and top with ice cream. Carefully transfer your first cake layer to the plastic wrap-lined and chilled sheet tray. Spoon 1.5 cups of softened ice cream all over the top of the cake layer.
Smooth out the ice cream. Using a knife or offset spatula, smooth the ice cream so it covers the entire cake layer. You should have a thick, solid layer of ice cream.
Top the ice cream with crunchy filling. Top the ice cream with a layer of crushed cookies, brownie bits or chocolate chips.
Top the crunchy bits with more ice cream. Spoon the remaining 1.5 cups of softened ice cream all over the toppings.
Spread out the second layer of ice cream. Smooth the ice cream so it covers the crushed cookies or the crunchy layer of your choosing.
Add the second cake layer and freeze. Top the ice cream with the second cake layer. Then place the cake in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours or until the cake and ice cream is completely frozen (it should be hard to the touch).
Remove cake from freezer and add topping. You want to make sure your finished creation doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, so pull up the plastic wrap “handles” and very gently pull the cake from the pan. Spread topping, such as fudge sauce, meringue or whipped cream, over the cake and place it back in the freezer for an hour, or until it sets.
