Last year, Grace didn't like ice cream (I have weird kids)... So we did ice cream for daddy and I made a cake for Grace-everybody was happy. This year, Grace LOVES ice cream so I thought 'Hey, let's make an ice cream cake!!!!'
So... if you ever LOSE YOUR MIND and decide this is the best course of action... Don't. Just. Don't. Trust me. Go to Dairy Queen and spend $20 and BUY THE CAKE. But, if you don't want to... please read on the learn from my.... failures.
I got the recipe and Instructions from here.
I bought Blue Bunny Ice Cream, vanilla and bunny tracks. Hot fudge, birthday cake oreos and of course whipped cream.
Now, her instructions were to get a spring form pan (I borrowed), line it somehow. Don't. Just don't. You don't need to flip it-make it easier on yourself DON'T TRY TO FLIP THE CAKE!
|The vanilla ice cream getting soft. I didn't let it get soft enough-give it at least 10 minutes. It will save you headache.|
|Then you spread it all out, cover and freeze for an hour. Like I said-let the ice cream thaw more.. It's not very smooth.|
|Add the fudge. FUDGE. Fudgy fudge. OOOOO YUMMY. I did not get enough. Put more than this-you'll thank me later.|
|Crush up the oreos, put them on the fudge. Grace was not very happy I 'smushed up all HER oreos. :D It was a rough day for her, mommy smushed oreos and melted ice cream-HORRIBLE . Freeze for an hour.|
|Now that worked MUCH better. I let the bunny tracks ice cream layer thaw for longer. SO MUCH EASIER!!! Cover, freeze for a day.|
|Now you remember when I said DON'T FLIP THE CAKE. This is why. It's stuck. Took me awhile to get all the foil off. Don't flip the cake. Just don't.|
|Aaahhh all 'iced'. Two layers of whipped cream, froze in between. Cover and freeze for a day before serving.|
Have a great week!
