Ice Cream Cake
It can be hard to resist the allure of a multi-colored ice cream cake, but if it’s been commercially prepared, it’s liable to be bland, icy, and saccharine sweet.
Why This Recipe Works
We tested most everything that made sense in an ice cream cake recipe and thought Oreo cookies worked the best for the crust because their flavor was strong enough to stand up to just about any flavor of ice cream. We produced a few bumpy ice cream cakes before we realized that the ice cream needed to be softened and whipped smooth with a wooden spoon before transferring it to the pan.
