Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake @EclecticEveryday

 

This past weekend, we had some our family in town. It was so nice spending quality time together. We usually hit the theme parks, but decided to have a more low key visit this year and do something more relaxing. So Saturday we took the boat out on the river and stopped at the springs. It was a beautiful day and despite a few rain showers, we  had great weather.

When we got back home, we were all craving ice cream, so I decided to put something special together. I took a box  of my favorite ice cream bars, Blue Bunny, and with a little Cool Whip and chocolate sprinkles, and made a little magic. This is the easiest little frozen cake and took me all of maybe 5 minutes to put together.

I thought this was also a great way to celebrate Ice Cream and Novelties Month, which is this month! I started this cake by just unwrapping all the ice cream sandwiches. I put four on the bottom, spread on some Cool Whip and then added 4 more ice scream sandwiches and more Cool Whip. To top things off, I just added a few chocolate sprinkles. Now how easy is that!

You can change this cake up by using chopped up Oreo cookies, colorful sprinkles or chocolate syrup and M&M’s. You can even use some fresh berries, yum! Also, you change the size to make an even bigger cake for a larger crowd or maybe even a summer birthday party. You’re only limited by your imagination!

    This makes me wish I had a larger mouth, just so I can eat this entire cake in one bite. Why couldn’t I be born Ms. Pac Man? Oh yea… She’s not real…

    Sigh…
