Cake Extravaganza–Finale!–Ice Cream Sandwich Cake


Thank you for joining me for my Cake Extravaganza!!  I hope you enjoyed it and gleaned some new recipes for your collection.

Today is my firstborn son’s 10th birthday!  To celebrate his birthday, he has asked me to make an ice cream sandwich cake.  I have made this a few other times, and it is definitely scrumptious!  It is an easy cake to make, especially in the summer.  No baking involved!  Just a bit of whipping, cutting, layering, spreading, and freezing.  Voila!  You’ve got yourself a wonderful cake for a great celebration!


Ice Cream Sandwich Cake


2 cups heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar

12 ice cream sandwiches – 1 box

1 small jar of hot fudge sauce

Spanish peanuts (the key to this cake!)

9x13 pan

While making this cake, be sure to work quickly or freeze the cake between layers if you must.

If you want a fuller cake, you can use the same size pan – just use more of all of the ingredients.

First, make the whipped cream.  Whip heavy cream with sugar until well-beaten.  Place in refrigerator until you are ready to being layering.

Lay out half of the ice cream sandwiches and cut them into 8th’s.


Now, you will begin the layering.  Make sure each layer is spread well before starting the next.

Place ice cream sandwich pieces into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

Spread half of whipped cream over the sandwich layer.

Spread on half of the hot fudge sauce.

Sprinkle peanuts, amount to your liking, over the entire cake.

Cut the other half of the ice cream sandwiches into 8th’s.

Repeat layers:  sandwiches, whipped cream, hot fudge sauce, and peanuts.

Freeze for a few hours or overnight.
