Hey, you! Back away from the oven and put down the cake batter. We know you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, but preheating is not the answer. Instead, make an ice-cream cake. With this recipe, we’ll tell you everything you need to know to assemble one yourself. We use vanilla and caramel ice cream and chocolate wafer cookies, and we even make our own whipped-cream frosting. Once you learn the ropes, you can easily customize the flavors (see our Finishing Touches for more on that). Plus, this cake is a make-ahead kind of deal, so you won’t be stressed out come dessert time.
