Course: Dessert
Cuisine: dessert
Keyword: Homemade Ice Cream Cake
Servings: 9 inch cake


  • 1.5 quart container of flavored ice cream I usually use mint chocolate chip
  • 1.5 quart container of vanilla ice cream
  • 11 ounce jar of hot fudge
  • 20 oreo cookies
  • 16 ounce container Cool Whip


  • Line the inside and sides of a 9 inch springform pan with plastic wrap, making sure all areas are covered.
  • Use parchment paper to make a round sleeve around the inside of the springform pan.
  • Melt the container of flavored ice cream to a consistency that is able to be spread. I either let it sit out for an hour or two, or put it in the microwave in 20 second intervals.
  • Pour the flavored ice cream into the bottom of the pan. Freeze for 1 hour.
  • Remove pan from freezer. Melt hot fudge according to package directions and spread over flavored ice cream.
  • Remove cream from center of Oreos (I break them apart by hand and use a knife to remove the cream). Process Oreos in food processor until they turn into fine crumbles. Spread Oreos over fudge layer.
  • Melt the container of vanilla ice cream. Spread ice cream over Oreo layer.
  • Freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove from freezer. Remove outside of springform pan. Move cake to cardboard cake round.
  • Use Cool Whip to frost outside of cake. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Return cake to freezer for at 1 hour before writing on cake (gel icing works best for writing on this cake).
