I told my friend that I would make her a birthday cake for her upcoming birthday party. She asked for an ice cream cake composed of yellow cake and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I wasn't expecting this. I am unable to find any recipes for a good basic ice cream cake that I can easily change to suit my purposes. All of the ones I have found are either made of oreo cookies or chocolate cake. I need a reliable ice cream cake recipe or a set of directions for constructing my own. I would preferably like to make it with home made ice cream. Tips would be appreciated, especially because this is my first ice cream cake and I think I need to put it together at my friend's house.
