Tuesday Cooking For Two – Celebrate Summer With An Easy To Make Ice Cream Cake

Even if you usually cook for one or two, some days call for Celebration!
We had such a day this weekend – it was Great Grandmother’s birthday. Maya and I made this easy and delicious ice cream cake to bring to Great Grandmother and celebrate her day.

Angel Food Ice Cream Cake

1 (10 inch) prepared angel food cake
2 quarts strawberry ice cream, softened
2 1/2 cups whipping cream (we cheated a bit and used whipped topping)
2 tablespoons sugar (if you’re using whipping cream)
Sliced fresh strawberries

Cut angel food cake horizontally into four equal layers. (hint – the cake will cut much more easily if you freeze it first)
Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the strawberry ice cream. (another hint – after you let the ice cream soften a bit, it will spread easier if you whip it with a mixer )
Immediately place in freezer.
Spread second cake layer with ice cream; place over first layer in freezer.
Spread third cake layer with remaining strawberry ice cream; place over second layer in freezer.
Top with remaining cake layer.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form.
Frost top and sides of cake.
Freeze until serving.
Decorate with fresh sliced strawberries

Happy Birthday, Great Grandmother!
