If you’re thinking about buying an ice cream cake, try this ice cream sandwich cake recipe first. I promise that it was easy to put together. No cooking skill is required. I estimate it was about 50% cheaper than a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. This can mean big savings if you celebrate a lot of birthdays and holidays with frozen cakes.
Now, the “ice cream sandwich cake” has been around for a long time. Maybe even decades. I’m not the first person to think of making a stacked cake out of them. However, I did create a little variety with this recipe and my hope is that you’ll try out some different flavors, fillings and ideas for your own ice cream sandwich cake recipes and then share them with Crabby Housewife readers by commenting below.
Keep in mind that any ingredients you use need to freeze well. Also, this cake is best when eaten within a few days. However, you really won’t have to worry about that. This one got devoured in a single day.
- Try different flavors of pudding. The combinations are truly endless.
- Try only Cool Whip between layers.
- Add flavoring to the icing.
- Instead of sprinkles, use shaved chocolate, strawberries or sugar crystals.
I’m going to have fun experimenting with this recipe. This first one was a hit and didn’t even last a day in our household. Keep in mind that it is best if eaten within a few days, because the buttercream icing and Cool Whip will start to harden and crack over time.
