Ice Cream Sandwich Cake Tips

How far in advance should you thaw the frozen whipped topping?

Allow plenty of time to thaw the frozen whipped topping in advance. It's best to thaw it in the refrigerator overnight versus at room temperature. As for the ice cream sandwiches, be sure to keep them frozen until assembly.

How can you make ice cream sandwich cake your own?

Switch up the candy bars on top, if you desire. Caramel chocolate bars, toffee, chocolate chips or chopped nuts would also make good toppings if you want to add even more richness to your ice cream sandwich cake.

How long will ice cream sandwich dessert last?

This ice cream dessert should last 5 to 7 days in your freezer. Be sure to store it covered, so it doesn't get freezer burn!
