Ice Cream Cake Recipe with Ice Cream Sandwich
Author: Crabby Housewife
  • 18 ice cream sandwiches I used Blue Bunny birthday cake flavor
  • 2 tubs extra creamy Cool Whip
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding or flavor of your choice
  • 1 can buttercream icing
  • 1 red gel food coloring
  • 1 blue gel food coloring
  • 1 flat serving tray I got mine at the dollar store in the party section
  1. Place six ice cream sandwiches on tray. Two up and three across.
  2. Cover top of layer with one half of the Cool Whip/pudding mixture.
  3. Layer six more ice cream sandwiches on top.
  4. Cover with the remaining Cool Whip/pudding mixture.
  5. Layer six more ice cream sandwiches on top for final layer.
  6. Cover entire cake with the second tub of cool whip.
  7. Place cake in freezer for an hour.
  8. Pipe buttercream around the edges (you can color the buttercream like I did). I just used a large zip top bag, cut one of the bottom corners and did a very simple straight piping. You can get fancier if you own tips and pastry bags.
  9. Add sprinkles.
  10. Cover and freeze until ready to serve.
