Mix ice cream with whipped cream. Is it a bit novel? Let's have a try!
Layers of strawberry cake are sandwiched with strawberry ice cream and frosted with sweetened whipped cream for a delicious and fun ice cream cake.
1 container (1.75 quarts) strawberry ice cream
1 box (15.25 oz) white cake mix
1 (3 oz) box strawberry jello
1 (15-oz) container frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
extra sweetened whipped cream
1.Line 2 9-inch cake pans with plastic wrap, allowing enough overhang to go over the sides of the pan. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to soften slightly. Spread the ice cream evenly in the prepared pans. Cover the top with plastic wrap and return to the freezer and freeze completely, at least 4 hours.
2.Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 9-inch cake pans, line the bottoms with parchment paper or waxed paper, then grease the paper.
3.Combine the cake mix and the jello powder in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Add in the pureed strawberries, eggs, vegetable oil and water and mix until thoroughly combined.
4.Divide the mixture evenly between the two prepared pans and bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
5.Cool for 10 minutes, then turn out of the pans onto a baking rack to cool completely. When cool, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze while the ice cream freezes.
6.Take out the whipped cream dispenser and cartridges. Pour heavy cream and powdered sugar into the dispenser. Get ready for making whipped cream.
7.To assemble the cake, unwrap the cake layers and with a serrated knife, cut each of the cakes in half to form 2 thinner layers. Place one layer on a cake stand or cake plate. Unwrap one of the ice cream layers and place it on top of the cake layer. Repeat with another cake layer, the remaining ice cream layer, and one more cake layer. (Reserve the remaining cake for the outside of the cake.)
8.Frost the entire cake with the whipped cream. Crumble the remaining cake layer in a bowl and then press into the outsides of the cake.
9.Freeze until ready to serve.
10.Right before serving, add additional whipped cream and fresh strawberries to the top.
