When it comes to summer food choices, you can either go one of two ways: eat a light bowl of kale salad loaded with other boring vegetables *OR* stuff your face with cake and ice cream. We’d obviously choose the latter, which is why we’re presenting to you Delish’s amazing recipe for an Ice Cream Sandwich Cake! It’s basically cake-ception, with ice cream sandwiches stuffed between heaping amounts of ice cream and sugar. Did we mention it includes Oreos? Enjoy!
1 Pint heavy cream
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Sleeve Oreos, crumbled
1 Package ice cream sandwiches
1. Beat heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form, about 3-4 minutes. Fold in crumbled Oreos, setting aside about 2 tbsp for topping the cake. Set aside whipped cream mixture.
2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Place a layer of ice cream sandwiches to cover the bottom of the pan. You may need to trim the sandwiches to fit the pan size. If so, set the trimmings aside and save them to top the cake.
3. Cover the ice cream sandwiches with half of the whipped cream mixture, smoothing to form an even layer. Top with a layer of ice cream sandwiches, then cover with remaining whipped cream.
4. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top of cake, then decorate with ice cream sandwich pieces. For a light, mousse-like treat, refrigerate it for 4 hours, or until set. For a stiffer, ice cream cake-like consistency that you can cut into slices, freeze for 3-4 hours, or until set. (If you don't keep your fridge very cold—or if it's crammed with other items—your best bet may be the freezer, so it actually hardens.)
