My hubby and I were invited to a small family gathering for my son in laws birthday this weekend at his parents house. Their delicious menu included Cuban style cuisine that was to die for, red beans and rice, Churrasco, chicken, tostones, and enchiladas!
I asked my son-in-law what kind of cake that he was going to have, duh cause that’s what birthday parties are all about
He said that he wanted a chocolate ganache cake, and an ice cream sandwich cake. I told him that I would love to try to make the ice cream sandwich cake cause I have never made one before and it sounded like fun!
He briefly told me how to make it and then I Googled it to get some ideas and this is what I came up with. Everyone liked it and it went together perfectly with the chocolate ganache cake!
What you will need:
12 ice cream sandwiches
3-4 Oreo Klondike Bars
16 ounce defrosted tub of Cool Whip
1 bottle Caramel Magic Shell
1 bottle Chocolate Magic Shell
About 12-16 Oreos crunched up
A few extra Oreos
Defrost the Cool Whip ahead of time
Unwrap all of the ice cream sandwiches
Do this next step 3 times, alternating the direction of the layers of the sandwiches:
Lay 3 of the ice cream sandwiches together with sides touching on a cake round( I use Wilton cake rounds, but you can use a plate, square or round cake pan)( 3 sandwiches one way, then 3 sandwiches in the other direction on top of each other)
Drizzle the chocolate Magic Shell all over each layer to help bond the next layer together
The fourth layer will have the Klondike bars, 2 whole bars, then cut the other bars to evenly fill the layer
Last layer will be the remaining 3 ice cream sandwiches
Freeze for about 30 minutes to harden the cake
Cover the entire cake with the defrosted Cool Whip
Garnish the cake with the crushed Oreos and Oreo halves
Drizzle the caramel and chocolate Magic Shell all over the cake and on the sides of the cake Freeze for 2-3 hours before serving
We didn’t let the cake soften before cutting, use a sharp knife, cut straight down
