oreo fudge ice cream cake from the side

This is ahhhh-mazing!  For real!  It was my first ice cream cake and now I wonder… why did I not make one sooner?  Why on earth did I bake all of those cakes all these years when my kids would’ve been just as happy (or happier) with an ice cream cake that takes just a few minutes to make!

This was easy, delicious and gorgeous!  I made my own fudge sauce which took all of 5 minutes and was TOTALLY worth it!  Ice cream cakes are my new favorite dessert!  Easy, quick and perfect for summer!

  1. I have a question on the Oreo fudge ice cream cake and I don’t know how to get the question answered but if I make my own fudge sauce she says to use chocolate chips, but is that semi sweet ?milk chocolate? I’m not sure?
    Hoping someone can answer5 stars

  2. Love your recipes. This cake looks delicious! Can I use whipped cream instead of cool whip?

    1. Thank you Jackie! I’ve only tried the recipe as written. It should work, but the texture will be slightly different (still delicious!).
