Help with ice cream cake

tweetie | Jul 9, 201902:57 PM     11

I make an ice cream cake for my husband's birthday every July. Over the years I have varied the non ice cream layers, sometimes using cookie crumbs as a layer sandwiched between ice cream but it always seems to act as a barrier rather than a bond. The layers don't adhere and I end up with a separated top and bottom. Maybe i should just drop this concept or maybe sandwich the crumbs between hot fudge to act as glue?

If you have any tips I'd be very grateful. My go to layers are chocolate cake, hot fudge in a thin layer, ice cream, crumbs or caramel sauce, ice cream and finished with hot fudge as "frosting".

Thanks again
