My friend in Michigan told me about the oh so good recipe in Family Circle- so I just had to go out and buy one! Wow- I am so glad I did... this is a so easy and quick to put together recipe and has few ingredients. So thank you Family Circle for the recipe and the photo too!

    Invert onto platter; remove pan and plastic wrap. Frost sides and top of cake with thawed whipped topping(before doing this if you want tint topping with color of your choice tint green in this case , if desired -(depending on the flavor and color of ice cream - pink for strawberry ice cream etc..)
