    You can substitute cream cheese for the eggs (8 oz for each egg). This is rich but very yummy and I found best to make the night before. It sets and cuts much better.  -  31 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is one of everyone's favorites cakes I make for the guys at work. It's light, refreshing. and a great warm weather cake (but I will eat anytime). I do use a smaller tub of cool whip and then drizzle chocolate syrup on top with a couple of cherries.  -  28 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A very similar recipe was given to me 20 years ago by a friend who moved shortly afterwards. I lost my copy and have been trying to remember the recipe. Thanks so much for submitting this recipe. My family loves this cake! A great summer dessert. Very rich but worth every calorie. The only differance is that my recipe drizzled chocolate syrup over the whipped topping and then sprinkled either chopped pecans or walnuts and chopped marachino cherries on top...just like the real ice cream treat.  -  30 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
