Easy Ice Cream Cookie Cake

Published September 10, 2010        by Rae Ann

The first time I had this ice cream cake was at a birthday party I took my kids to.  Everyone raved about how delicious it was, and it tasted like a lot of work was put into it.  Then the mom told me how she made it - ice cream sandwiches!!  Who would have thought?  Well if you haven't thought of it before, start thinking now!  It is so creamy and delicious, and you can make it unique to the flavors you love. To change things up, you can use different flavors of ice cream sandwiches. Some things you can add (crunched on top or between layers) : Heath Bars, Butterfingers, M&Ms and more! Ingredients: 1/2 cup Hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed 1 tub  (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided 1 pkg. (3.9 oz) Chocolate Instant Pudding 8 Read more

Meet the Giant Cupcake

We've all seen giant cookies before, but have you seen the giant cupcake?  It's a special mold that makes a huge cupcake that looks just like the smaller version! A giant cupcake can be frosted to resemble a regular cupcake or you add one to a regular sheet cake for an amazing creation.  Finished cupcake measurements are approximately 7-1/4 by 7-1/2 inches. The pan can be purchased at for just under $25.  A giant cupcake pan consists of 2 molds - the bottom of the cupcake and the top. Before constructing your giant cupcake, a good idea is to put a layer of frosting between each half so you are less likely to have slippage during frosting. Below are some of my favorite giant cupcake creations, found on Read more
