DIY Icecream Cake

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I call this diy beacause there are many ways to make this different icecreams different puddings cookies and more.I got this basic recipe from a nice women i spent a few hours with in an emergency room about 15 years ago. Since then I made alot of these cakes for my childrens special days and even friends birthdays. I love the different flavor combos u can come up with.
So I put this together for young neighber girl who requested a snowman icecream cake from caravel. Seeing as her mom really didnt have extra money for there dinky cake I offered to make this one. Cost us a quarter of price.
