Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Did I ever mention that I love Pinterest?  I am a pinterest-a-holic!  I, myself, have about 40 boards with over 7,000 pins. I have pins for lots of different crafts like paper, recycled, jewelry, duct tape, felt, plus more. Then there's boards for recipes, beauty, health and fitness, photography, holiday crafts, geeky things, and of course, a personal page for Jeremy Renner where I have over 700 pictures of just him.  *sigh*

OK (slap back to reality).  I've gone way off topic.  So anyway, while surfing on pinterest, I found a DIY ice cream cake that I thought would be fun to make.  So I did!

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
It's an ice cream sandwich cake and all you need are:

12 bars of ice cream sandwiches
whip cream in a tub
Magic Shell chocolate
Magic Shell caramel
crushed oreos

 I bought a box of ice cream sandwiches from Wal-Mart and bought fat free cool whip.  Sorry I forgot to add the magic shells and oreos in the picture.

I unwrapped each sandwich and stacked them in 3's on top of each other, criss-crossing the layout.  Note:  Be quick putting this together as the ice cream melts pretty quickly.

Once you have all of them stacked, spread whip cream over the entire thing.

Drizzle with the chocolate Magic Shell.

 Follow it up with the caramel Magic Shell.

Sprinkle crushed up oreos on top and wa-lah!  Homemade Ice Cream Cake!!!

Feel free to add whatever toppings you want on the cake like m&m's, cherry, strawberries, sprinkles, whatever your heart desires.  My kids and I did eat this and it was pretty good for homemade.  A bit sweet for me.  Personally, I can be happy with just vanilla ice cream and chocolate magic shell.  Sometimes I actually can be simple.  ;-)

Hope you enjoyed!

Oh my word, that looks like heaven on a plate-yum! I'm pinning your post!

I was just wondering if you would like to share this post at my weekly Say G'day linky party? It's on right now and this would be a great addition. Also, I'm not sure if you know this already but I'm inviting pinning bloggers to join a Mother's Day group board on Pinterest. The details are at my main blog {} if you are interested.

Best wishes for a lovely week,
