Ice cream sundae cake.

In case you were wondering, I still know how to use a computer...I am indulging in some serious summer slacking at this here little space. It seems that like clock work, I get behind, and busy, then more behind....well I caught up! And in light of my lack of time, I thought I would share with you an easy dessert idea. An ice cream "cake", no baking required. All you need are a spring form pan and a few store bought ingredients. Similar to the terrines I shared last fall, this is mostly about assembly. And totally summer worthy if I do say so myself..


1 container ice cream, cookies and cream
Oreos, twisted in half
Sundae fudge
Cool whip
Maraschino cherries
Chocolate chunks or chips
1 banana, sliced for serving
Parchment paper
*The only thing missing here to make it an official sundae cake is a nut topping as we are a mostly nut-free home.


Set all your ingredients out at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, or until softened. This will make the assembly super easy. Line your pan with a circular cut out of parchment to fit. Then add Oreos that have been twisted in half, smooth over half a carton of your ice cream, then cool whip, fudge, chocolate chinks and repeat ending again on chocolate chunks. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate freeze for at least 3 hours. Run a knife around the sides of the cake and take out of the spring form pan. Finish with cherries and serve with sliced bananas.

If you want to make a healthier version if this I would suggest layering frozen yogurt with some berries and a topped with a sauce like this one.  Or layer up your version and be sure to let me know how it turns out!

Ps. I hope you are partaking in some slacking, and ice cream as well...

Thank you for the excellent observation! Unless you are looking to drink your cake :)

Oh my gosh, this looks AMAZING!!!! The only reason I tolerate DC summers is that eating copious amounts of popsicles and ice cream is socially acceptable. I think I need to make this!

(I found your blog via the Live and Enliven Blog Connection post and I am so happy I did!!!)
