  1. The directions for the Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwich Cake & the Picture of it seem different to me. It looks like therwere a lot more Ice Cream Sandwiches used than 12. How many Ice Cream Sandwiches & Cool Whip were actually used in the Pictured Patriotic I.C S Cake??

    1. The cake in the photo used 12 ice cream sandwiches. The whipped cream/pudding mix used between the layers may make it look like there were more sandwiches stacked in there plus the cool whip on the outside makes it seem bigger. :)
