um hello birthday cake. hello 1 billion calories. hello deliciousness.
This is what I made for my dear boyfriends birthday this past weekend. It was decadent. It was amazing. And it got eaten up in 10 minutes flat after a days worth of time layering this masterpiece!
It was pretty extravagant to say the least. I mean you only have 1 birthday a year, and apparently calories don’t count on that day so in my book that means, EAT UP!!!
Now there is no exact science to making a layered ice cream cake… just lots of patience and licking your fingers… so here is a template for making your own creation. Feel free to change up ice cream flavors or any other aspect you want!
- Mint Chip Ice Cream
- Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream
- 3 thin 9-inch brownies
- 2 thin 9-inch cookies
- Cream Cheese Frosting
- On a cake stand, place one of the thin 9-inch brownies. Spread some of the mint chip ice cream on top of the brownie and add a 9-inch cookie on top. Gently press down on the cookie so the ice cream is evenly spread between the layers. Transfer cake into the freezer and freeze for 30 minutes. Once re-frozen spread a layer of Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream followed by a brownie. Freeze. Add another layer of Mint Chip Ice Cream followed by a cookie. Freeze. Add a layer of Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream followed by a brownie. Freeze. Remove from freezer and quickly frost with cream cheese frosting. Place back into freezer until ready to serve.
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
