I have eaten such an insane amount of milk (in the form of ice cream) during this pregnancy! Every week I've told myself, you've really got to stop eating so much ice cream, hot fudge sundaes, frozen yogurt, Blizzards... you get the idea. Yet, every week I couldn't seem to resist just one little bit... so here we are at the end of the pregnancy and I gave up. In fact, I'm eating ice cream right now.
I have been craving a Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake the whole nine months. But, being me, I decided to make ice cream cakes with an Oreo crust myself. My best friend and her son have birthday's a day a part, and they were having a party! The perfect excuse to experiment. I made a vanilla ice cream cake for the kids and an espresso ice cream cake for the grown ups! I headed into the endeavor having absolutely no idea what I was doing, but also with the knowledge that with ingredients like Oreos, fudge, ice cream and whipped cream, I really couldn't do anything too disastrous. The results were, "I'll have a third slice", kind of amazing.
This recipe makes once cake.
