Today is my Little Brother's 11th birthday and he really, really wanted an ice cream cake.  Being the ultra cool kid he is he is addicted to pinterest as am I.  We browsed pinterest together and got inspired to make an Oreo Crunch Brownie Ice Cream Cake.  I looked up a few DIY sites on Ice Cream Cakes since I had never attempted one, then like always I just went for it and made it my own.

I will not get to sample this amazing cake but it sure looks good sitting in the freezer waiting for the party of boys to devour it...
Here is how I went about it:

I made 1 box of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies in the bottom of a round spring form pan.  I cooked it for 9 min less than the box said.

Then I allowed it to cool, and then added the chocolate fudge topping.

Once that had some time to set up, I added one layer of Dreyer's Cookies N' Cream Slow Churned Ice Cream One Layer was one whole tub.  On top of which I added broken Oreo Cookie Crumbs and Hershey's Chocolate Shell Topping drizzled over it.

I placed it back in the freezer to firm up.  Then once it firmed up, I added yet another layer of Cookies N' Cream Ice Cream.  Once again I returned it to the the freezer and then finally I added a Whipped Cream Frosting, and decorated with more Chocolate Shell and Oreos for good measure.


  1. So how much longer on this six week cleansing? Are you feeling any better? I do not know how you had the will power to not taste this cake, but good for you.

  2. Well, I started this on 7/20 so I guess that means on Aug 31st I can start adding things back in. But we just add one thing at a time, so that we can see if I have any bad reaction to any of it.

    I don't know if I am feeling that much better or not. I do know that the severe pain that had been in my arm is gone! However, I am exhausted with no caffeine. I had much pain last week from not being able to go to the bathroom, and then this week I am lifting 3 year olds all week. So, to be honest it is hard to tell.
