    All I have to say is I love you Grandma Betty! This is an absolutely phenomenal ice cream cake (move over Dairy Queen. I used the basic recipe but then tweeked it to suit my tastes. I used a oreo cookie bottom and then added some homemade rasberry/blackberry sauce. I put the ice cream on top and instead of using whipped cream I crumbled a chocolate cake on top mixed with toasted peacans and some ice cream chocolate sauce. Then I drizzled the top with butterscotch ice cream topping. This cake was divine. I will never need to buy an ice cream cake again. The beauty of this recipe is that you can keep it simple or make it complicated and it is still incredible.  -  14 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great "cake"! Try it in every flavor. Use frozen yogurt and low fat milk to make it a little more healthy. I use vanilla wafers for the crust. A+++++++++++!!!!  -  20 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
