Layered Ice Cream Cake

My neighbor made this cake for her kids' birthday party today. It was DELICIOUS and sounded really easy, so I thought I'd give it a go for Sarah's 11th Birthday!

Layered Ice Cream Cake

Layer the following ingredients:

Ice cream Sandwiches - 12 ct box
Chocolate Cool Whip Dip- 1 small container
Crushed Oreos - I used 1/3 of the package
Hot fudge sauce - I used an 11oz jar. Melt, then pour.
Ice cream sandwiches - 12 ct box

Frost and decorate if desired.

Frosting - I used 2 tubs of Duncan Hines cream cheese frosting, but you could use any kind. I think the Wilton Buttercream would make enough to frost AND decorate. I prefer that kind, but didn't have all the stuff or the time to make it!) Freeze until ready to serve.

You definitely have to work on this cake in stages. I'd make a layer, put back in freezer for 10-15 minutes, then move on to the next layer. 

My neighbor covered a piece of cardboard with foil and made a cake approximately 15 x 20 (she doubled everything b/c she had 40 kids + their parents!) then decorated it with an ocean theme (super cute) but I suppose you could also make it in a 9x13 pan.

I don't like chocolate but I like this cake!
