Ice Cream Sandwich Cake: Wow Your July 4th Party Guests With This Easy Dessert!

Nothing says summer like ice cream. I tried this ice cream sandwich cake recently and it was crowd-pleaser. This ice cream sandwich cake is so easy to make. Let your kids help out!

You'll need:

  • 1 box (12 count) ice cream sandwiches
  • non-dairy whipped topping or homemade whipped cream (get Donna John's easy whipped cream recipe)
  • Toppings: nuts, caramel sauce, strawberries, chocolate chips, etc.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Line a square pan with foil. 
  2. Lay 3 ice cream sandwiches in a row on the bottom of the pan. 
  3. Place another 3 ice cream sandwiches on top, turned the other way. 
  4. Repeat until you use all of the sandwiches (3 per layer and 4 layers high). Freeze for at least 2 hours.
  5. Remove from the freezer and lift the cake out using the foil.
  6. Ice the cake with whipped cream and add desired toppings. Immediately return the cake to the freezer until serving time.
