Ice Cream Cake

  • 1/2 kg Vanilla Sponge Cake (Or Chocolate Cake)
  • 500 ml (Approx) Chocolate Ice cream
  • 250 ml(Approx) Butterscotch Ice cream
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Water


  • Cadbury Gems Butterscotch, Chocolate Shavings, Silver Balls etc.
  • Bourbon Biscuits/Munchini


  1. First of all, you need a pan big enough to hold 1/2 kg cake plus 300 ml ice cream. I have taken 6" round cake pan with a loose bottom. You can also opt for Cheesecake pans. Or simply, any pan and lay cling film in it, large enough to hang outside the pan also.
  2. Mix sugar powder in water and keep it aside.
  3. Take out both the ice creams from the freezer and take the required quantities in bowls and let it be on the kitchen counter for 5 to 10 minutes. In the meantime do the following preparations. You need soft ice cream and not melted one. So, in case it becomes too loose then keep it back in the freezer.
  4. Now, divide the cake horizontally into 3 parts so that you have 3 equal discs of cake.

  5. Lay one disc in the cake pan. Put 1 or 2 tablespoon sugar water on it to moisten the cake.
  6. Now, put half of Chocolate ice cream on it and spread evenly. Exactly the way, the whipped cream is applied.
  7. Keep the second layer of cake. Repeat the process but this time put Butterscotch ice cream. Use all the Butterscotch ice cream.
  8. Keep the last layer and repeat the process ending with chocolate ice cream. Ensure that it slides on to the sides of the pan also.
  9. Freeze it for 4 to 6 hours or maybe overnight.
  10. Take out, run a knife around the edges and slide the cake upwards.
  11. In the process, if the ice cream starts melting then keep it back in the freezer.

  12. Take out, decorate and serve.

Recipe Notes

  1. You can make it with just 2 layers of cake also, that is, cake then ice cream again cake and finally fill with ice cream.
  2. You can take cake of any flavour you like, be it chocolate or strawberry or any other. In that case, adjust the ice cream flavours that go well with it.
  3. For decoration you need to be quick otherwise ice cream will start melting. If it does, then do your decoration in 2 or 3 instalments keeping the cake back in the freezer in between.
  4. Decoration ideas:
  • Grated milk chocolate
  • Gems
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Sugar sprinklers
  • Finely chopped nuts
  • Fresh fruits
  • Oreo biscuits, whole or crumbled
