This show stopping cake recipe is a masterpiece visually and in flavor. This ice cream cake recipe consists of white cake, homemade ice cream, and orange Jello, and while it tastes like a creamsicle, its appearance is so much more elaborate. The classic creamsicle is vanilla ice cream enrobed in an orange popsicle shell and this ice cream cake recipe replicates those tastes by involving two homemade ice cream recipes, vanilla, and orange. Whether you are searching for a dessert recipe to serve in the summertime or birthday cakes for kids, this orange creamsicle ice cream cake will be an elegant statement on any table.

This is one of the best dessert recipes ever because it contains flavors that everyone enjoys and is easier to make than it looks. You might be wondering how to bake a cake, especially an ice cream one, but this cake recipe involves step you likely already know how to do, like making jello and baking a simple cake layer. The white cake layer gets baked before anything else since the cake requires time to cool. This layer provides stability to the ice cream recipe and is a foil for some of the orange flavors in this creamsicle cake recipe. Next, two layers of ice cream are prepared. Lindsay, from ‘Life, Love, and Sugar’ recipe blog, has created two ice cream recipes that are incredibly easy and surprising because each one involves only five to seven ingredients and no churning. By combining cream cheese, sugar, milk, and Cool Whip, you can produce a simple ice cream that tastes just as rich and creamy as store-bought versions. If you aren’t a fan of Cool Whip due to the preservatives, you could substitute for whipped cream instead. Just whip the cream with some confectioner’s sugar and you will have a perfect sweetened whipped cream for making your ice creams.

This ice cream cake recipe uses orange Jello, which is an integral ingredient to this cake because it gives the necessary orange flavor to this cake. If you are vegan or vegetarian, consuming any gelatine may pose a problem to you, but that shouldn’t mean you can’t make this cake recipe. Rather than using a gelatine-based jello, consider using agar-agar with fresh orange juice. Agar agar is a type of algae that acts in a similar way to gelatine one teaspoon will set one cup of liquid. In the case of this ice cream cake recipe, replace the hot water for boiling orange juice, and the orange Jello powder for agar-agar. You might have to test the amounts of agar-agar, however, since while it can set a lot of liquid, sometimes you need more of it to set ingredients with high acidity.

The best cake recipes are the ones that taste great, but also make a statement. No matter who you serve this cake recipe too, they will be impressed that you could make your own ice cream cake, not to mention ice cream, from scratch.
