Super simple + tasty layered cake with Blue Bunny® Homemade vanilla ice cream, vanilla wafers and Smucker’s caramel and fudge. Frozen in a bread pan for easy slicing! YUM!
Who is ready for summer?! We are SO close to being done with school–Gabby is done with preschool tomorrow and the twins finish up on the 10th. Ice cream and summer go hand-in-hand, don’t they? We’re fans of a big bowl of ice cream after dinner. The Blue Bunny varieties are our favorite from Walmart because they are FULL of toppings. I have to hide the Blue Bunny Super Chunky Cookie Dough in our garage freezer for myself–cookie dough is my weakness! The new clear packaging showcases the swirls of flavor inside–you can SEE all of the goodness inside.
Everyone has gatherings in the summer and an ice cream cake is a fun dessert that is always a party favorite. Instead of using a large 9×13 pan, I thought a bread pan would be fun–you slice the ice cream cake like bread! This really displays the layers of toppings and it’s the perfect serving size!
I almost called this an ice cream lasagna, since the toppings are layered in the bread pan. First you sprinkle crushed vanilla wafers, then you top with the Blue Bunny ® Homemade Vanilla ice cream, top with Magic Shell Fudge and caramel. Are you drooling yet?! The best part is the whipped topping at the top drizzled with fudge and caramel. After it freezes together, the Magic Shell creates big, crunchy bites of chocolate in the slices of cake.
You can go crazy with different flavors of ice cream and Smucker’s toppings–pick the Blue Bunny Banana Split flavor and layer with bananas, fudge and the Smucker’s Strawberry Spoonable topping. The Smucker’s toppings are an expensive way to add some fun to your summer ice cream–I stock up on all of them!
