  • 2 ice cream sandwiches
  • 1/2 cup whipped topping
  • 1/2 bottle Chocolate Magic Shell (about 3.5 ounces)
  • sprinkles, candy, cake frosting/gels * optional decor


  • Place one ice cream sandwich onto a plate or tray.
  • Spread on a thick layer of whipped topping and place a second ice cream sandwich on top. Clean off any extra whipped topping that may come out from the edges.
  • Place the plate or tray into the freezer until the whipped topping is frozen solid, about 1-2 hours.
  • Once the whipped topping is frozen, remove the plate from the freezer.
  • Cover the ice cream cake in the chocolate Magic Shell, decorating with sprinkles and candy immediately, if you are using them.
  • Decorate with cake frosting or icing and gels once the Magic Shell is set, if desired.



Tips and Techniques

  • To make a larger Ice Cream Sandwich Cake, you can use two layers of 6 or 12 ice cream sandwiches (12 or 24 total). Simply place them into either an 8 x 8-inch or 13 x 9-inch a baking pan, then follow the same steps as listed below. You will also need extra whipped topping and Magic Shell.
  • Magic Shell sets quickly. If you plan to decorate your cake with sprinkles or candy, be prepared to add them immediately since it sets so fast.
  • Store your cake in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Promptly place any extra ice cream cake back in the freezer.
