Nothing screams summer to me like ice cream. Loading it up with lots of decadent additions like Oreos, sprinkles and caramel frosting only makes this ice cream cake that much better.
My family often begs me to make this cake. Although it may look complex, it's very simple and doesn't take too long to make. The only hard part is waiting for the cake to freeze completely. You can change out frosting flavors or even cookie flavors (golden Oreos) to customize this cake and make it exactly what you will love.
To create this delicious ice cream cake, start off with making the brownies. I used a box mix and prepared the brownies according to the package directions.
Instead of baking the brownies in one 9 x 13-inch pan, I separated the batter into 2 round cake pans. Make sure to grease and flour the pans really well to allow the brownies to come out in one piece.
Once the brownies are baked, cooled and removed from the pans, press 1 of the brownie cake layers into a springform pan.
Now it's time for the funfetti part of the cake. I took a tub of vanilla frosting and mixed in lots of sprinkles — 1/3 of a cup. It is important to use sprinkle jimmies so they don't bleed weird colors into the frosting.
After that, layer on the Oreos, and press them evenly into the funfetti frosting.
Next comes the ice cream. I used vanilla, but another flavor could certainly be used. Allow the ice cream to soften slightly, and then spoon large, round scoops on top of the cookies. Make sure the ice cream is evenly dispersed.
Using the second brownie layer, press the ice cream down, and make the cake even with the brownie.
Last comes the frosting. It's a salted caramel frosting covered in lots of sprinkles.
Once the frosting has been made and spread onto the cake, place the cake in the freezer for about 4 hours to allow it to completely harden.
And then it's time to dig in.
