Giant Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
This photo isn't the best but its' of Caleb decorating my birthday cake last week. The boys offered to bake me a cake, but I had been hungry for a Giant Ice Cream Sandwich so I put one together and they decorated it. Easy and yummy, it's a great summertime birthday cake!
Giant Ice Cream Sandwich
Heat oven to 350. Generously spray two 9" round cake pans. Cut a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough into 20 - 1/2" slices and lay 10 in each pan. Press slices together leaving a 3/4" gap all around the edge (the cookies will spread to the edge of pan when baking). Bake 14 minutes or until golden. Let cool for 2 minutes then remove cookies from pans onto waxed paper and cool completely. Place two pieces of plastic wrap at right angles to each other in one of the empty pans, leaving enough overhang to cover sandwich. Set 1 cookie upside down in pan. Spread 1 qt. of slightly thawed ice cream over cookie. Place the second cookie, right side up, on top of ice cream then wrap. Cover with aluminum foil (if you make it really far ahead of time) and freeze until firm (about 5 hours). Decorate, if desired, then slice and serve.
