this will be the easiest, tastiest, loveliest layer cake you’ll ever make!  so simple, that my kids did most of it!!!

 

As promised, I’m getting this recipe out for the upcoming Holiday weekend.  This simple showstopper will be a HIT at your 4th of July Cookout with both kids and adults.  You can also customize the cake in tons of ways!!!  Set up a cute little topping stations with:  Chopped Nuts, Caramel, Hot Fudge, Strawberries, Cherries…just set the toppings out and let the partiers go wild!!!  You can also make it smaller or larger by adding more Ice Cream Sandwiches…just be sure to buy a little more Cool Whip as well!  The hardest part of this cake is to make sure you have enough room in your freezer to store it.  I put mine on foil on a baking pan to make it and transfer it back and forth.  That worked perfectly.  Just make sure there is room in our freezer for it to sit straight!  I used our deep freezer.  Ok, so this is going to be a quick, basic recipe blog post because I don’t have time to edit and take quality photos.  The Cloud was demolished so quickly, I’m going to have to remake the cake to take better pics.  These are the ones I snapped along the way with my iPhone.  They will do for now, so my lovely readers can get ready for the weekend!

It cuts beautifully and is a fun presentation!

Layered Ice Cream Cloud Cake

INGREDIENTS:

1 box Ice Cream Sandwiches (12 Sandwiches)

1 Large Container Cool Whip (16 oz)

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Assorted Toppings

*Cover Baking Sheet with foil.  Lay another LONG sheet of foil on top with enough excess foil to lightly cover and protect your cake!  Unwrap 4 Ice Cream Sandwiches and lay them side by side, touching.  Open Cool Whip and add 1 tsp Vanilla.  Lightly fold in top half of Cool Whip with a spatula.  (TIP: This is what makes the flavor POP a bit more and makes the Cool Whip taste more homemade!!!)  Add a few dollops of Cool Whip on top of 4 Sandwiches.  Drizzle light layer of Hot Fudge on top.  Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to let the first layer of Cool Whip and Hot Fudge harden on the Ice Cream Sandwiches.  Take out of freezer and add 4 More Ice Cream Sandwiches on top.  Repeat with Cool Whip and Hot Fudge.  Put back in freezer for 15 minutes.  Take out of freezer and add remaining 4 Ice Cream Sandwiches.  Now, drizzle a bit of Hot Fudge on the last layer of Ice Cream Sandwiches.  You should have about a 1/2 carton of the Cool Whip left.  Add your  other teaspoon of Vanilla to the Cool Whip and fold in with spatula.  Carefully Coat the ENTIRE CAKE with the remaining Cool Whip.  Its fun, its simple….just make it look like a fluffy cloud.  Pop back in the freezer until ready to serve!!!!  Enjoy!
