WATCH: How To Make Easy Oreo Ice Cream Cake
The cookies make this super easy to put together into a cake!
This easy ice cream cake is a glorious layering of mango and strawberry ice cream in between layers of Oreo cookies. The unbearable heat will make you want to indulge in all things ice cream this summer!¬†
To make this cake, you just need to find the right combination of ice cream flavors that you love and putting it¬†together into a dessert that you can enjoy eating. We used mango and strawberry but other flavors would¬†be just as delicious, too.¬†
However, the heat is ice cream's enemy. The trick to making ice cream cakes during the summer is planning it. Ice cream will melt quickly even if it's not under direct sunlight, so here are the tips we think you need to do this successfully without having a melted mess on your hands:
- ‚ÄĘ Soften the frozen ice cream pints for only 15 up to 20 minutes.¬†We found 30 minutes at room temperature resulted in ice cream too soft to scoop.¬†¬†
- ‚ÄĘ Freeze¬†the¬†first ice cream layer before placing the next layer on top.
- ‚ÄĘ Freeze¬†the entire thing overnight for a completely frozen dessert that you can slice.
- ‚ÄĘ If desired,¬†line the¬†glass loaf pan with plastic wrap so you can remove the entire cake from the pan so you can cut it into¬†perfect slices.¬†
This ice cream cake¬†will keep you refreshed. Here's¬†how we made it:¬†
