Homemade Oreo ice-cream cake

IMG_0017

I’m using the term homemade rather loosely, because I didn’t really “make” any thing that went into this cake. It was simply putting some ingredients together, just like Jason’s Minion cake. We celebrated Shannon’s birthday in advance with my in laws and I realised after googling for ideas that I had enough at home to make an Oreo ice-cream cake. Actually, it’s a cake without any real cake in it. The biscuit does soften slightly though. It took just 15 minutes or so to put together, once you have gathered all the supplies needed. I did it the day before the party so it would be sufficiently frozen.

Items needed:

A springform cake pan (cake pan with removable sides)

Pack of Oreo cookies – enough to line sides and to crush for the topping

Cookies and cream ice-cream or any preferred flavour

Directions:

Start with a clean, dry cake pan.

Line the sides and bottom with Oreo cookies. I halved them for the bottom layer but left them intact for the sides.

Picture below is a little dark, but there are oreos at the side of the pan. Fill with ice-cream of your choice. I had 3 half tubs of various flavours at home and poured them all in – chocolate, cookies and cream, and macadamia nut. I thought it tasted fine. 🙂

Smoothen the top and ensure the gaps between Oreos are filled. At this point, don’t let inquisitive kids get near the springform pan, in case they ask what the clasp at the side of the pan is for, and proceed to open it before you can answer. No prizes for guessing what happened. Let’s just say a cake pan dripping with ice-cream was not part of the plan.

Crush remaining Oreos and pour on top. Cover it and pop it into the freezer until the party.

The side Oreos stick out because I didn’t have enough ice-cream to fill it to the top. I decided it would be part of the design!

The cake is hard to cut through, but melts really fast. An alternative to a springform pan, would be to use cling wrap on a normal cake pan so that you can pull up the frozen cake easily.
