Any one have a good recipe for an ice cream cake? I want to make one for friend's b-day this weekend but so far I've only found recipes that are more like pies with ice cream filling but no cake. I may just end up making a good ol' mud pie....

Just make one layer of a two layer cake.  Then take the same cake pan, line it with saran wrap and pack it full of softened ice cream.  Throw that sucker in the freezer for a while, then  frost the cake layer (or put your favorite filling on top of it), pop the ice cream out and put it on top of the frosted cake layer, and frost the whole thing.
It's a piece of cake! Cheesy Gosh I'm funny!

My aunt makes a version that I think is great.  It's a bit time consuming because you have to freeze it after each layer, but your active time in the kitchen is pretty low.

You basically make a Oreo cookie crust - mix 1 package of Oreos with some melted butter/margarine (I think about 1 stick, but I don't have the recipe here with me).  Take 1/2 to 2/3 of this mixture and press it into the bottom of the pan you want to use.  Then stick it in the freezer for 30 minutes or so to set.  Next you spread 1/2 gallon of softened ice cream over the crust, and stick it back in the freezer for ~1 hour.  Then spread 1 jar of hot fudge (warmed enough so that it's spreadable but not so hot that it totally melts the ice cream) over the ice cream and put in the freezer for another 30-60 minutes.  The final step is to spread 1 tub of defrosted Cool Whip over the top and sprinkle with your left over Oreos.  Freeze once more...about 1 hour, and you're done. 

I like this recipe because you can totally change around the flavor based on type of cookie, ice cream, and topping.  I love it with mint chocolate chip!  Even the slightly lower fat version - frozen yogurt & fat-free Cool Whip tastes great.

Hope this helps!

hey maripaz, that sounds so great.. !
just one q: whats Cool Whip? can you describe it (im not from the US..)?

plus bout the icecream cakes-
I LUVVV icecream cakes  Cheesy !!
it's great here when summur comes, cuz summer can get really hot.
my mom makes once in a very-long-while a strawberry-orange ice cream cake i just love. but its always hard to make cuz strawberrys and oranges berly grow in the same time, plus the season they have fruit is wintery-spring, i think, so its a bit funny. anywhy, although your friend already had the party Undecided (saw this msg just now..), i could still ask her for it and try to translate it, if you guys are intrested  Smiley

byebye & thanks again maripaz for that recipe, i'll try to make it when exams are over  Grin

Cool Whip is a type of whipped topping common in the US.  It's sold frozen, and you just defrost in the refrigerator til it's the consistency of whipped cream.  You could probably substitute whipped cream, but I'm not sure how that would freeze.  A non-dairy whipped topping would probably be best if you could find it.

Your orange-strawberry ice cream cake sounds great.  I'd love to see the recipe if you get a chance.

Here I am back with the recipe.. But before you plan on making it for a party or something important, try it just to see if you can make it in the US, or anywhere else that's not Israel, that is.. since there might be a problem with one of the ingredients… You see, the thing is this: I really hope you'll be able to find some kind of “instant dairy whipped cream” that works good, since you'll need it, and mom said that ordinary whipped cream (real whipped cream made from real cream.) doesn’t work well with this recipe.

At last after lot's of blabbing, here it is… (oh and it's actually supposed to be ice cream, not a cake.. but is too hard to really be ice-cream, so I call it ice cream cake Cheesy you will need to crave slices of it after is freezes) :

Homemade Icecream (from Mira)

2 cups (400 ml) chopped strawberries
1 cup (200 ml) orange juice, approximately
½ - ¾ cups sugar
1 egg protein (the white stuff)

Mix all the above in a food processor ("with a steel blade"...? lol.. you can just see this recipe's from 20 years ago..)

Make 1 small bag of 'instant-(dairy)-whipping-cream' according to the instructions on the box.

Mix the two mixtures together (I guess you should be careful not to wreck the whipping cream too much..), pour into a PIREX (or some other kind of heat/cold resistant) flat-bowl, cover with nylon and put in your freezer to freeze.

* the recipe says you can also use bananas instead, or with the strawberries, we never tried that since we really like the strawberry version, but I guess it sould turn out also yummy. You can probably change it to any fruit you want, and it'll still be good.

Oh, and Maripaz thanx for explaining what cool-whip is Smiley I think I can use the same instant whipping cream used in the strawberry icecream cake Grin yey.

Thanks for the recipe viburnum.  Sounds yummy! I'll definitely give it a try sometime soon!  It's been way hot where I live lately (93F/34C and humid) so ice cream is definitely in order  Grin

I know this doesn't categorize as "cake" but here's an idea, I bought a frozen pre-made pie crust that you just throw in the oven for 10 mins - it's very flaky. Then I made some fresh peach ice cream and I layered it with caramel. It was great. I'm sure you could substitute cake for the pie crust.

Or you can make this watermelon bombe that I made, but cover the top with cake. That'll work AND qualify as Ice Cream Cake!
