It was so simple to put together and we devoured it.
I have always been so intimidated by ice cream cakes, but this recipe is so delicious and so simple, that it’s almost impossible to mess up.
If you are looking for a quick birthday cake, or summer dessert, this recipe is definitely recommended. Plus, it only requires a few simple ingredients. So it’s the perfect cake for people on a budget.
My husband asks for this recipe for every birthday and Father’s Day.

would any chocolate cake mix work for this recipe?

For this recipe, we recommend using Devils Food Cake Mix. However, really any chocolate cake mix would work just as well.

I prefer the Devils Food Cake Mix, but once you get the ice cream and Oreo’s on there, you won’t even be able to tell what cake mix you have used.

could i microwave my ice cream to thaw it?

For this recipe, we recommend thawing the ice cream, by setting it out on the counter for a few minutes. We have found that usually 20 minutes is the perfect amount of time.

We don’t, however, recommend microwaving your ice cream. It can mess with the texture, as well as the flavor. It also doesn’t thaw it evenly. The edges thaw way before the center, so the texture is a little off. It will be liquid in some areas, and still completely frozen in others.

We highly recommend just letting the ice cream set out on the counter for a few minutes, not microwaving it.
