Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream Cake

This ice cream cake draws inspiration from the beloved Strawberry Ice Cream Crunchie Cake and Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars. The incorporation of strawberry shortcake crunchies adds a delightful texture and flavor to the cake. While the original plan also involved a strawberry fudge layer, its challenges led to its exclusion from the final recipe. Nonetheless, this ice cream cake is still a winner, with the combination of your favorite brand of ice cream and the strawberry shortcake crunchies creating a fun and delicious treat.

How to Make the Strawberry Crunchies

The addition of homemade strawberry crunchies elevates the taste of this ice cream cake. Forget store-bought options; we’ll guide you through creating the perfect crunchy element. You’ll need all-purpose flour, sugar, freeze-dried strawberries, butter, and vanilla extract. By combining these ingredients, you can create a flavorful crumble. After baking and cooling the crumble, crumble it further, if necessary, to achieve the desired texture. The use of freeze-dried strawberries ensures an authentic and vibrant strawberry flavor.

How to Make a Strawberry Ice Cream Cake

Once you have prepared the strawberry shortcake crunchies, it’s time to assemble the cake. Begin by lining the inside of your cake pan with clear wrap, as this will aid in removing the ice cream cake later. Add a layer of strawberry ice cream and evenly spread it in the pan. Then, add a cup of the strawberry shortcake crunchies and freeze until firm. Next, add a layer of vanilla ice cream and freeze the entire cake until it reaches a firm consistency.

To complete the cake, prepare a whipped cream frosting and coat the outer layer of the cake. As the ice cream can melt quickly, feel free to freeze the cake intermittently during the frosting process. After the final layer of whipped cream, add the remaining strawberry shortcake crunchies. For an added touch, create a border on top of the cake using freeze-dried strawberry powder-infused whipped cream.
