3 minute ice-cream cake

ice-cream cake recipe

Ice-cream cakes are so quick and easy to make, but you do need to allow time for it to set in the freezer. Pull it out just prior to serving, decorate it on top and you’re good to go.


This week we reached 3 million subscribers on YouTube. I have been trying to picture just what that looks like as a crowd of people. Michigan stadium holds 105 thousand people. So if it is filled to capacity 28 times over … that is 3 million people. Now spread those people out all over the world and you’ve got the How To Cook That family.

Our heart goes out to the families effected by the horrific car attack in Melbourne city today. I wish I had more eloquent words to say and powers that could make it all better. Innocent children are in hospital fighting for their lives, families are mourning their dead and those who witnessed it all are in shock.

To make the celebration ice-cream cake you will need:

3 x 2L (0.53 gallons) tubs of ice-cream (you will have leftovers)
3 x small tubs of nutella
mini m&m’s
3 packets freeze dried strawberries
3 subway cookies
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
3 lids of mcdonalds caramel sauce or other thick sauce

For decoration
3 donuts
3 macarons
3 blocks of lindt white chocolate
mini m&m’s

    Congratulations on 3 million subscribers! I just found this channel looking for a Minecraft cake. Your Minecraft Village cake is amazing! Planning to subscribe and see what other creative ideas you have. So entertaining!

  2. Hi Ann! Could you put the directions on this page because I had a hard time seeing what you were doing in the video? Thank you so much and I love your desserts!

  3. Ann I’m so sad. I love in Australia but I live in QLD Brisbane. I wanna visit you but being a child of 11 I have never left the state. The furthest I have gone is Kingaroy or better known as the old peanut capital. I wish you could visit me cause I love you so much but even if I can’t see you I will make it a great week…. After making my cupcakes :3

    • That is so sweet Dawn. I am sure one day when you are older you will venture much further afield. Isn’t it great that things far away from us can seem so close by use of the internet.

  13. Hi Ann,
    When I read the title of this video I thought “No, no, no, no, no, don´t go! Don´t stop making these super great cake videos!”.
    I was watching the video waiting for the explanation … and what a relief to hear that it will just be an interval for you to be able to move to Melbourne and set things up there. So: All the best for the adventure of living in Melbourne (lived there myself long time ago, loved it) and THANK YOU for the big decision to continue operating HOW TO COOK THAT!
    Will eat the super sponge lemon strawberry cake with my family now.
    All the best Corinna from Germany
