Welcome to Home Sweet Home! Today I have an alternative to the store bought ice cream cake. I found this recipe on the Duggar Family website. I was having lots of challenges feeding three boys and I went to their website wondering how Michelle Duggar fed all of her kids and I found her recipes. You can get there by clicking here.
My kids love this cake and would rather have it than a store cake. It has the chocolate and then some that you would get with the fast food ice cream birthday cake.
So, let's break down the cost:
I followed the recipe and bought name brand on a few things everything else was store brand and cheaper.
Hershey's Chocolate syrup $1.68
Smuckers Caramel topping $1.98
4 regular Butterfingers $3.00
24 ice cream sandwiches $3.98
whipped topping .99
Total cost $11.63
This makes a 9x13" pan and feeds 20-30
The kids verdict was that it was rich and a small piece was perfect.
Layered Ice Cream Cake
24 ice cream sandwiches
8 0z. whipped topping
1 Hershey's chocolate syrup bottle
1 Smuckers caramel topping
2 king size Butterfinger candy bars chopped up
1st layer: 12 ice cream sandwiches
2nd: half of whipped cream
3rd: half of Butterfinger bars
4th: squeeze 1/2 of caramel and chocolate over that
5th: rest of ice cream sandwiches
6th: whipped topping
7th: rest of Butterfinger
8th: rest of Caramel and chocolate
Freeze and eat as desired.
Now for the vintage part of this post, I had to show you another piece of my Fair Winds English Transferware by Alfred Meakin. This is the dessert bowl I served the ice cream cake in. The scene on this is the U.S.S. Portsmouth off the Barrier Forts of Canton. Every piece of this transferware has a different scene on it. Soon I will make a table with it.
