Mr. Food: Ice Cream Party Cake

What You’ll Need

1 (15-1/4-ounce) box chocolate cake mix, prepared and baked according to package directions for two 9-inch cake pans
4 cups cherry chip ice cream, softened
6 to 7 assorted novelty ice cream bars, cut into 2-inch pieces (see Tip)
4 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
Caramel sauce for drizzling
Hot fudge sauce for drizzling

What to Do

Remove cakes to a wire rack to cool, then remove from cake pans. Clean cake pans then line with plastic wrap. Place cooled cakes back into cake pans. Evenly spread cherry chip ice cream over 1 cake. Gently press half the ice cream novelty pieces into cherry chip ice cream. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Spread vanilla ice cream over second cake; cover and freeze until ice cream is solid.
Remove cherry chip ice cream cake to a platter, discarding plastic wrap. Place vanilla ice cream cake layer on top. Arrange remaining novelty ice cream pieces on vanilla ice cream, as shown. Drizzle with caramel and hot fudge sauces. Serve immediately or freeze until ready to serve.
