17 Easy Ice Cream Cakes Anyone Can Make!
I started making my own ice cream cake seven years ago when my oldest daughter requested I buy one for her birthday. Being the frugal mom I am, I thought there must be a way to make those expensive ice cream cakes on my own. I had no idea what I was doing, but I came home from the grocery store with bags of cookies, whipped cream, sprinkles, and ice cream, and plopped them all on top of the counter. I stared at them in disbelief that this hodgepodge of ingredients and melting ice cream was going to resemble a cake in anyway — Let me tell you, “skeptical” doesn’t begin to describe what I was feeling. I didn’t think it was possible for me to pull it off.
After layering crushed cookies and (almost) melted ice cream in a cake pan for five minutes, I started to feel hopeful about her little ice cream cake turning out okay. I wrapped it up with plastic wrap and hoped for the best. Meaning, I wrapped it up, said a little prayer, and then made cupcakes as a backup!
The next day when it was time to prepare her birthday cake for her friends, I unwrapped the ice cream cake, flipped it upside down and praised God that I did it! The cake turned out so good it is now a family tradition!
