Making Your Own Ice Cream Cake

If you're a creative cook, you may have fun designing your own ice cream cake modeled after your favorite DQ ice cream cake!

All you'll need is a spring form pan and...


Vanilla ice cream
Your favorite ice cream flavor
Your favorite ice cream sauce
Your favorite kind of cookie (crumbled in medium-sized chunks)
Whipped cream
Traditional frosting


Lightly grease your spring form pan.

Then, add the first layer of your Dairy Queen ice cream cake by putting a small amount of vanilla ice cream to cover the bottom and sides of your spring form pan.

Make the second layer with whatever flavor you want to be the main flavor of the cake. For instance, if you like chocolate, use chocolate ice cream for this layer.

Cover this layer with ice cream topping. Chocolate fudge would work well for our cake.

On top of that we can sprinkle a crunchy layer of cookies, perhaps crumbled Oreo or Chocolate Chip cookies. Or you may choose to use crushed candy bars.

The final layer is made with vanilla ice cream filled to the top of the pan and smoothed so that it can easily be decorated.

Since regular frosting is too heavy for an ice cream cake, you'll want to mix some whipped cream with whatever frosting flavor and color you've chosen.

Use the frosting to add a picture or message to the top of the cake, and you're done!

Whether you decide to order Dairy Queen ice cream cakes or experiment with making your own, you'll have a fun, tasty treat to offer your party guests!
