When they were younger it always meant 2 back-to-back birthday cakes in the heat of the summer.
A few years ago we discovered this wonderful recipe for an ice cream cake that uses ice cream sandwiches.
We made it for Pedro’s birthday and it has become his cake of choose every year since. It is super easy and you don’t even need to turn the oven on!
Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Line a 9 x 13 pan with one box of ice cream sandwiches (I think it was about 12). You can cut them to fit.
Then cover them all with a nice layer of whipped cream.
Lay another layer of ice cream sandwiches on top and cover that with more whipped cream.
Put in the freezer.
I told you it was easy!
You can add other layers of course. Maybe some chopped up candy bars, or chocolate syrup, or crushed oreos, whatever you have on hand!
We used regular ice cream sandwiches for the first layer and then a special s’mores ice cream sandwich for the top layer. We also sprinkled M & M’s on the top since it was a birthday cake! Yummy!
