I'm pretty sure if you look up the word 'sin' in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of this ice cream cake!
As promised I had big plans for the coffee ice cream that I can 't get enough of. A few weeks ago I found the perfect devil's food cake recipe online. It was so decadent, I decided to frost only one layer and freeze the other. While pondering the nightly question, What sweet treat can we have for a nightcap, I came up with this sinful idea. What better way to use leftover cake and ice cream?
I cut the layer of cake in half horizontally and spread on two flavors of my homemade ice cream: coffee and vanilla. Then, I whipped up a carton of whipping cream for icing. Side note: My right bicep is the only muscle that gets a regular workout! Freezing the cake between steps for a few minutes helped set the ingredients and made frosting the cake a breeze. As if it wasn't rich enough, the boys insisted that I add a few chocolate chips.
It was so easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand. I doubt that I'll be buying another ice cream cake for birthday celebrations. The possibilities are endless!
